Lesbian Couple From Texas Found Murdered And Left By Dumpster

Britney Cosby and Crystal Jackson’s love was so strong that their family members called the couple soulmates. Sadly, their love and their lives were cut short recently as the two women were found murdered in Port Bolivar, Texas, their bodies left near a dumpster.

According to an ABC affiliate in Texas, family members said that the two women, both 24, who had been in a relationship for two years, left to go to Galveston for Mardi Gras last week. The couple took their trip in Cosby’s new 2006 Kia Sorrento, last speaking to their family on Wednesday. The women had been staying with Cosby’s great-grandmother before their trip, and she said she was alarmed at the fact that she didn’t hear anything from either of the women after they left.

By Friday, the bodies of both women were found near a convenience store dumpster (they were identified and the families were notified this week). Police say that the women’s bodies were moved after their murders, and that they were killed in different ways. Cosby died of blunt force trauma, while Jackson was shot to death. Because their bodies were moved near the garbage, many are wondering if the murders were a hate crime or if it was just a robbery. Cosby’s Kia Sorrento is missing, and police are hoping that if they can track that down, they can find the murderers. Until these questions can be answered, the family of these ladies continue to mourn, including Jackson’s sister, Lequetia Jackson.

“What did they do to you to kill my sister? You beat my sister up and you just, you messed her up to the point she can’t breath no more.”

Cosby’s sister, McDade Cosby, spoke as well, asking for those who hurt both women to do the right thing:

“Just come forward, just to give us closure as a family. Just come forward, ’cause we need closure at this point.”

And Crystal Jackson’s father, Reverend Ivan Jackson told a Fox Affiliate that despite his pain, he knows that God will handle things:

“I barely found out yesterday morning but I forgive whoever did it but let God take his course…She didn’t have an enemy in the world.
It’s very difficult, but by being a man of God, I have to stand.”

Crystal Jackson leaves behind a 5-year-old girl. To get more details on this sad story, check out the news video below from KTRK-TV in Houston:

UPDATE: Police have also distributed a sketch of a person of interest, which you can see here.

    You failed to mention that the father is a Muslim. Homosexuality is not allowed in Islam and sharia law permits killing homosexuals. You also did not mention that a Koran was open at the murder site at the page that condemns homosexuality. I guarantee if it had been a “BIBLE,” it would be plastered all over the news media with every black activist in the country staging marches and candlelight vigils and demanding the death penalty for a hate crime.

    Please correct Brittney’s name. Her family and friends informed me it is spelled Brittney with two t’s.

    I hate to say it but our community the “black community” is so damn homophobic its literally a shame! I pray for these women and ask God to bless their families regardless of someones lifestyle they are a human being and should never have to go through this! They have parents and family that loved them. I’m saddened by this. I’m very sad that people can’t live their lives without having to be hurt or killed for it!

    Gays and Blacks have been murder in TEXAS for decades! A very Racist State.
    This state was the last state to release slaves. Pres. George Bush Land

    Rest in Peace Ladies GOD IS REAL!

    • TrillProphecies93

      Gays and blacks you’re very right about that. But black people hate on their own gay black people so much its crazy. Forget about what a person does and just see them for them people can’t help how they are. Now this little girl doesn’t have a mother my heart is broken!

    • Dee

      They were killed somewhere else and then their bodies were moved/placed beside the dumpsters.

      • nosrednakal

        I thought that at first, but the article didn’t mention the primary crime scene.

  • mainstreamisoverrated

    Such a tragic story…my deepest sympathies to their family & friends. I hope law enforcement locates the person(s) responsible for this heinous act as soon as possible.

  • MarriedMomOf2

    My condolences goes out to their families, especially the 5 year old daughter of one of the victims. May they RIP.

    This is heartbreaking. The grief and pain in the sister’s voice and cries are heartbreaking. I hope they find the devils who committed this crime. Kill these women and dump their bodies like they were trash. Heart goes out to these families.

  • Guest

    If this is a hate crime this is a damn shame. It’s okay that you don’t support the LGBT community but these 2 women were someone’s daughter, sister and for one of them someone’s mother and they had friends and family that loved and supported them and my condolences goes out to their families. RIP Britney and Crystal.

    • Wemustdobetter

      They didn’t have to kill them . So unnecessary and evil. They could have just took their car and left them alone.

  • Jordan Washington

    What type of ‘person’ does this? I pray/send love to the families/their friends. Rest In Paradise <3

  • lockstress

    OMg..I feel so bad for the families.
    Jesus, may God have mercy on their souls.
    So sad and shameful. I hope that his has NOTHING to do with the fact that they are a couple.
