There are new and disturbing developments in the investigation into the brutal murders of Crystal Jackson and her girlfriend Britney Cosby. The bodies of the Houston couple were found in nearby Port Bolivar on Friday March 7. The father of one of the women killed has been arrested, reports KHOU.
Britney Cosby’s father, James Larry Cosby, is charged with 2 counts of tampering with evidence in connection with the death of his daughter and her friend Crystal Jackson, according to the Galveston County Sheriff's Office. ... Cosby, 46, is currently being held in the Galveston County Jail on a total of $500,000.00 bonds. This investigation is still ongoing which may lead to charges being upgraded to capital murder.
Police say the bodies were discovered behind a convenience store dumpster on Friday March 7. Detectives believe the women were killed elsewhere and the bodies were dumped at that location. Authorities say Cosby died from blunt force trauma and Jackson was shot to death. The couple has been together for two years. Both women were 24-years-old.
Cosby purchased a 2006 Kia Sorrento only one week ago, adds the Houston Chronicle. The SUV is missing. Detectives have released a composite sketch of the suspect driver.
This story is heartbreaking on so many levels. My thoughts and prayers to the victim's families during this tragedy.
