Two Lesbian Moms Were Murdered In Texas

Written by 

Crystal Jackson Britney Cosby


These last weeks, some celebrities came out, we heard about confirmations of relationships, very good news by-here by-there, except in Africa. As a whole, we spent good weeks, so good that we almost forget that abominable tragedies can occur.

At 7:30 AM, last Friday, the lifeless bodies of a couple of lesbian moms from Houston were found near a convenience store’s dumpster in Port Bolivar in the north of Galveston in south Texas.

Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby, 24, had lived a love history for 2 years and raised together a 5-year-old little girl bring into the world by Crystal.

The police has currently only very little information and cannot qualify this act as a hate crime yet.

It would seem that the couple had decided to go to Galveston for Mardi Gras.

They would have been murdered in a place which still remains unknown before being left near a convenience store’s dumpster in Point Bolivar.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office released Monday the official cause of death. Britney died from blunt force trauma, and Crystal died from a gunshot wound.

Despite everything, the police released this sketch:

The car of Britney, a silver 2006 Kia Sorrento with paper tags, is also missing.

If you know this man, you already saw him or cross him and if you see Britney's car, immediately contact the tip line at 866-248-8477 or the Galveston County Crime Stoppers at 409-763-8477.


James Cosby

According to KTRK, Galveston county investigators arrested James Larry Cosby. He is now in jail, charged with two counts of tampering with evidence after the double murder of his daughter, Britney Cosby, and her girlfriend, Crystal Jackson.

"His house was a secondary crime scene, from the evidence that we saw when we went to interview him and we did recover certain parts of evidence that are here at our sheriff's office now to be sent to the lab," said Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset.
