The remains of missing Taylor Pomaski, who was dating former NFL player Kevin Ware, were identified by Texas officials.

Authorities said Saturday that the remains found during a Houston-area search in December have been identified as those of 29-year-old Pomaski, reported NBC News. Thomas Gilliland, who is Harris County Sheriff's Office Senior Deputy, said in an email that the identification was made by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences. Gilliland shared that the investigation is still "open and active and homicide investigators are diligent on bringing this case to a close."

According to PEOPLE, deputies said that no suspects have been arrested in connection with the case, and that an official cause of death has yet to be revealed.

Pomaski disappeared on April 25, 2021, after a party at her residence in Spring, Texas, and witnesses said that she and Ware got into a “violent fight” in front of their guests, reported New York Daily News.

Last year, Eric Zuleger, Pomaski’s ex-boyfriend, shared that she said Ware had hit her, but still she was going back to him.

On Dec. 10, human remains were discovered at a site in north Harris County.

Authorities said that Ware, former tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, was questioned about her disappearance last June. According to inmate records, the former athlete has been in Montgomery County Jail, north of Houston, for 10 months. He was being held without bail after he allegedly violated conditions of bond for a case unrelated to the disappearance. It involved drug and weapons charges.

He was described as a suspect in the Pomaski case by Montgomery County prosecutors in a June court filing that sought to have his bond revoked. But that designation has not been used by lead investigators on the case from Harris County.

Ware’s attorney, Coby DuBose, said last December that court filing "is the first time that it’s been suggested that he is a suspect.” DuBose told in an email Saturday night that authorities had not spoken to Ware or him about Pomaski recently. He added that they believe his client's "bond was revoked in violation of the law, and our appeal of the bond issue is still pending in the Court of Appeals."
