Ex-NFL player Kevin Ware allegedly burned, buried corpse of missing ex-girlfriend Taylor Pomaski: report

Ex-NFL player Kevin Ware Jr. indicted for the murder of Taylor Pomaski in July, 15 months after she vanished

The former NFL player who was charged with the murder of his ex-girlfriend about 15 months after she vanished allegedly burned her body after killing her, according to court documents released Wednesday. 

Kevin Ware Jr., a former tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, was out on bail for an unrelated charge when his ex-girlfriend, 29-year-old Taylor Pomaski, went missing on April 25, 2021, after a party at her Texas home. 

Newly released court documents cited by KPRC-TV allege that Ware Jr. killed Pomaski and then burned her corpse afterward, burying the remains.

A body wasn’t found until December 2021, nine months after her disappearance, and was not positively identified as Pomaski until April 29, 2022, FOX 5 NY reported.
