Texas Lesbian Couple Murdered, Bodies Found Near Dumpster
Horrifying news. The bodies of a Houston lesbian couple were found by a dumpster in Port Bolivar, Texas.
Authorities believe that Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby, both 24-years-old, were murdered. The couple had been together for two years. Jackson has a 5-year-old daughter.
According to Houston's ABC 13:
Their bodies were found Friday morning next to a convenience store dumpster.
Jackson's father says he last heard from his daughter on Wednesday. He said she worked as a security guard, while Cosby was a barista at Starbucks. Both lived at Cosby's great grandmother's home.
"I never heard from them anymore, and that night I didn't hear from her," said Cosby's great grandmother, Annie Lee Cosby, said.
Relatives say the two women went to Galveston for Mardi Gras. Authorities say they were killed in different ways, and it's possible the suspects murdered them elsewhere and moved their bodies.
Authorities are currently looking for Cosby's vehicle: a silver 2006 Kia Sorrento with paper tags.
Those with information on the murders or the vehicle are being asked to contact the Galveston County Sheriff's Office tip line at 866-248-8477.
Cosby's sister, McDade Cosby pleads: "Just come forward, just to give us closure as a family. Just come forward, 'cause we need closure at this point."
