Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby
In a shocking development, the father of one of the two lesbian women found murdered in a dumpster in Texas has been implicated in their deaths.
According to AP, 46-year-old James Larry Cosby, the father of Britney Cosby, was arrested on Thursday.
Police says it appears that the women, who had been a couple for two years, may have been killed in Cosby’s home.
He has been charged with tampering with physical evidence related to a corpse but, according to the authorities, could soon also be charged with murder.
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 last week.
Autopsies have revealed that Cosby was beaten to death while Jackson was shot.
The women lived together in Houston. Jackson leaves behind a five-year-old daughter.
