TEXAS: Lesbian Couple Found Murdered
The bodies of Britney Cosby and Crystal Jackson, both 24, were found next to a dumpster outside the Fisherman’s Cove store in the 700 block of State Highway 87. Deputies say the women were involved in a relationship. A beer deliveryman found the victims around 7:30 a.m. when he took out some trash. Detectives believe the women were killed somewhere else and dumped at the store. The news was a shock to residents of the quiet beachside community. “Unbelievable, it’s scary,” said Nancy Palley. “You know, I told my husband we are making sure to lock our doors today. I’m not coming home to find someone in my house.”More from a local ABC affiliate:
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. Now both families are pleading for help in finding the person or persons who killed their loved ones.
