The bodies of a lesbian couple from Houston were found last weekend near a dumpster in Port Bolivar, Texas. Authorities believe the women were murdered.
Crystal Jackson, 24, was a mother to a five-year-old girl. Her sister broke down in tears while speaking to us about Jackson. She said Jackson was a nice person and loved her girlfriend, 24-year-old Britney Cosby. The two had been together for two years.
Cosby’s family members also are still visibly upset after finding out that the couple were found dead in Port Bolivar. 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. Now both families are pleading for help in finding the person or persons who killed their loved ones.
Authorities are trying to locate the couple’s 2006 silver Kia Sorrento SUV, which they say was likely stolen. If you see the vehicle or wish to report any information about the case, contact the Galvestson County Sheriff’s Office at 1-866-248-8477.
