Also covered in this thread from a couple days ago-
I searched for "taco" but that thread didn't come up. Yes, I backed the spokes off until all were loose. The wheel didn't look like the one in that thread. With spokes backed all the way off, it had several sharper and more local bends in it. Some of the bends are only ~6-8" long. Rim is trashed. Hub looks fine.
Results matter
