Earlier this week we reported on the murders of Britney Cosby, and her girlfriend Crystal Jackson, both 24, in Galveston, Texas. In what is a horrible turn of events, police have arrested James Larry Cosby, 46, Britney’s father in connection to the murders. Crosby is currently being held in the Galveston County Jail on a total of $500,000.00 bond.
According to the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office the alleged murders of both women look like they took place in James’ home. Britney Cosby reportedly died from blunt force trauma, while Crystal Jackson was shot, according to the news channel.
Ironically, James Cosby spoke to a news crew about his daughter’s death. “You can’t really put something like this into words,” he said at the time.
Earlier this week, a beer deliveryman discovered the bodies of Britney Cosby and Jackson next to a dumpster outside of the Fisherman’s Cove store in Port Bolivar, Texas. Deputies say the woman were involved in a romantic relationship and had traveled to Galveston to celebrate Mardi Gras.
Jackson was a mother to a five-year-old girl, according to reports.
“Just come forward, just to give us closure as a family,” McDade Cosby, Britney’s sister, told KTRK at the time. “Just come forward, because we need closure at this point.”
