A former NFL quarterback who failed to show for sentencing on drunken driving charges nearly four years ago, has been killed in a car crash in Greece.

Authorities in Chester County, Pennsylvania say fingerprints have confirmed that it was in fact Jeff Komlo who was killed Saturday.

There had been some skepticism that it was really him, due to Komlo's history.
In July 2005, Komlo failed to show for sentencing on two drunken driving convictions.

Two months earlier, authorities had issued a warrant for Komlo when he didn't appear for a preliminary hearing on charges in an alleged assault on his girlfriend.

At the time he went missing, Komlo was under investigation for fires at his home in Pennsylvania and another home in Florida.

Authorities did not know what happened to him after he skipped the hearings in 2005.

Komlo played for the Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers over five NFL seasons from 1979 to 1983, and after that had sold insurance in the Philadelphia area.
