The bodies of two 24-year old murdered women were found Friday morning, left near a convenience store’s dumpster in Galveston County, Texas. The couple had been living together for two years. Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby were raising Jackson’s five-year old daughter. Police have yet too announce a motive or suspect.
“Relatives say the two women went to Galveston for Mardi Gras,” Houston’s ABC News affiliate KTRK reports. “Authorities say they were killed in different ways, and it’s possible the suspects murdered them elsewhere and moved their bodies.”
Investigators are looking for Cosby’s vehicle, a silver 2006 Kia Sorrento with paper tags. It’s missing and could be a key part in finding out who killed Cosby and Jackson.
Jackson’s father says he last heard from his daughter on Wednesday. He said she worked as a security guard, while Cosby was a barista at Starbucks. Both lived at Cosby’s great grandmother’s home.
“I never heard from them anymore, and that night I didn’t hear from her,” said Cosby’s great grandmother, Annie Lee Cosby, said.
“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,” Jackson’s sister, Lequetia Jackson, told us.
Houston’s local Fox station adds that a “beer deliveryman found the victims around 7:30 a.m. when he took out some trash.”
