A grand jury in Texas on July 28 indicted NFL player Kevin WeirD., 41, was charged with the murder of his girlfriend, 29-year-old Taylor Busaski, as well as tampering with a corpse.
If convicted of the murder, Ware faces 15 years in prison for life, according to Harris County Attorney Kim Ogg’s Texas office.
“He was never held accountable,” Pomsky’s mother, Leslie Mandeville, told Fox News Digital of War and his history of feuding with the law before he was accused of killing her daughter.
She later added that she hoped Weir would spend “the rest of his life in prison” with “anyone else involved” and that “all parties are held accountable” in her daughter’s murder case.
Bosaski disappeared after a house party on April 25, 2021, but her remains were not discovered until May 2022.
When Mandeville initially filed a missing persons report on May 9, 2021, she went to Ware’s house with the police, who were questioning the former NFL player, to pick up her daughter’s dog. Mandeville said this was her only interaction with her daughter’s friend, who was “cute” when they spoke but was reluctant to hand the Pomasky dog to her mother. In the end, Ware, Mandeville, and the police decided it was best to give the dog to the Pumaske family, Mandeville said.
US Infantry Service Ware was arrested in June 2021 on violating a bond after failing to appear for supervision earlier in the year. The station reported that the arrest included a vehicle chase in which Ware allegedly drove more than 115 miles per hour and was later found to be carrying weapons and drugs.
Ware is not the first former NFL player to be convicted Abuse or kill. While some experts have cited chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), or traumatic brain injury from repeated blows to the head, as part of Logic Behind why some players commit horrific crimes, Mandeville says Weir has a long criminal history dating back to his football days when he lived in Washington state, NBC Sports Previously mentioned.
At Pumaske’s funeral, a woman came to Mandeville, hugged her, and told her she knew Weir as a girl when they lived down the same street growing up.
“She said he tortured her throughout her childhood,” Mandeville said. “…she was saying, ‘This should never have happened.’ This should have been stopped years ago. And she would go away and come back. She kept saying, ‘I’m so sorry.’ I’m so sorry.”
“It just didn’t start,” Mandeville said of the alleged abuse.
She described her daughter as “funny”, “happy” and “front and center all the time”. Pomasky loved “being with her friends and family” and always had something to do. She was interested in computer science but worked various odd jobs, as she was still trying to find her career niche.
Mandeville has not heard from her daughter for two weeks since the April 25 party where she was last seen. Mandeville decided to file a missing persons report on May 9 because it was Mother’s Day and her father’s birthday, and she hadn’t contacted her parents, which Mandeville said was unlike her daughter.
Pomsky’s ex-boyfriend also called her parents that day to inquire about their daughter because he knew they had heard about her on May 9 as well. The ex-Pomaski then informed her parents that the 29-year-old had admitted to him that she had been in an abusive relationship and was struggling to get out. Mandeville is unsure of the extent of the abuse, but said she knew “anything she would have done” would have made her deserving of such treatment.
“She weighs 6-3, 300 pounds. She weighs 5-2, 100 pounds,” Mandeville said. There was no reason for that to happen.”
Mandeville said she knows the answer in terms of how to alleviate the “guilt and shame” that loved ones feel when they are abused or addicted to drugs.
“I hope we can somehow figure out a way…to pull that away. When you’re a family member outside, it’s really hard. You don’t know what to do. It’s an adult, and you’re saying, ‘Please, let’s get you out of there.'” “But they’re not ready. And Taylor is the tragic side of this, where it ends terribly.”
Lacey Johnson, lead attorney general for the DA Harris County Major Violators Division, who is handling the murder casein a statement on July 28, said that although “the investigation has been underway since Taylor’s disappearance in 2021, court proceedings are just beginning,” and the DA office “encourages anyone with knowledge of what happened between Kevin and Taylor to come forward.” “
