US Marshals arrested ex-NFL player Kevin Ware on Friday and plan to question him on the whereabouts of his girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski, who disappeared in April. Ware has so far not been named as a person of interest in the case
Texas authorities say they plan to question ex-NFL player Kevin Ware about the disappearance of his girlfriend after he was arrested for violating a bond-supervision court order on Friday.
US Marshals took Ware, 40, into custody at a shopping center parking lot after he failed to report for supervision for unrelated drug possession and firearm charges.
They are looking to question him about the disappearance of 29-year-old Taylor Pomaski, who was last seen at a house party with Ware on April 26, KPRC 2 reported.
Ware, who played for the Washington Reskins and San Francisco 49ers, has not been named as a person of interest in the disappearance, but police said they suspect foul play.
Tim Miller, founder of Texas EquuSearch, a volunteer missing person's search organization, said he anticipated the worst in Pomaski's disappearance.
'This certainly is in no way going to have a happy ending,' Miller told ABC13.
Ware has a criminal record dating back to 2007, and was most recently arrested on April 19 after police found drugs and guns in his car. He has since been out on bond.
Eric Zulegar, a friend and former boyfriend of Pomaski's, said he had been in communication with her in the weeks leading up to her disappearance.
Texas authorities are seeking the whereabouts of 29-year-old Taylor Pomaski, who was last seen at a house party in April with Ware. A former boyfriend of Pomaski's said he believed she and Ware had a toxic relationship
'She was in danger, she was in trouble. There was violence, she referenced a gun being pulled on her. She was very scared, very nervous,' he said according to the network.
He said he believed Pomaski's relationship with Ware had turned toxic.
'We were talking about her getting out of there, getting back on her feet, getting herself set and stabilized,' Zuleger told KOUH11.
Pomaski and Ware were at a house party in the Houston suburb of Spring in the home where they reportedly lived together the night of her disappearance.
'There is a big party at his house and then a fight broke out with him and Taylor, and, from what we understand, the fight got fairly violent,' Miller told ABC13.
Zulegar said he is unsure whether Ware is responsible for Pomaski's disappearance, but believes he may have information that could lead authorities to her. Ware had reportedly not been cooperating with investigators.
'There could be others that were around the house that night. I’m not for certain, but Kevin knows exactly what happened,' he told KPRC2.
