Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby
Two lesbian women in Texas have been murdered and callously dumped in the rubbish.
According to media reports, the bodies of Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby (both 24) were discovered by a delivery man in the dumpster outside a convenience store in Port Bolivar on Friday.
The women had been a couple for two years and lived together in Houston. It’s believed that they were travelling to Galveston for a Mardi Gras celebration when they disappeared.
Jackson leaves behind a 5-year-old daughter. Cosby’s car is missing and police have issued a sketch of a possible suspect in the case, a man in his late twenties or early thirties.
It’s not known at this stage if the women’s murder was related to their sexuality or if they were victims of some kind of robbery or hijacking.
Autopsies have revealed that Jackson was shot while Cosby was beaten to death.
Their families have pleaded for anyone who has any information about the attack to help solve the brutal murders.
“Just come forward, just to give us closure as a family. Just come forward, ’cause we need closure at this point,” Cosby’s sister, McDade Cosby, told ABC News affiliate KTRK.
