Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby

Authorities are investigating the deaths of a lesbian couple whose bodies were found next to a dumpster in Port Bolivar, Texas.

Family and friends of Crystal Jackson, 24, and her girlfriend 24-year-old Britney Cosby hope police are close to solving the murders.

The bodies of the couple, who were originally from Houston, were found Friday morning next to a convenience store dumpster in Port Bolivar, ABC affiliate KTRK-TV reports.

The families are demanding answers.

“What did they do to you for you to kill my sister,” said Jackson’s sister, LeQuetia Jackson in a tearful interview with KTRK-TV.

Jackson’s father told KTRK-TV he last spoke with his daughter on Wednesday.

“I will never hear her voice again, and never thought that it would come my time to bury my child,” said Ivan Jackson.

He said Jackson worked as a security guard, while Cosby worked at Starbucks.

Both lived together 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.

The family said the women were killed after they returned from Galveston where they attended Mardi Gras.

Cosby’s family members are also grieving.

“Just come forward, just to give us closure as a family. ‘Cause we need closure at this point,” said Cosby’s aunt, Ebony McDade.

“They didn’t have to die. Whatever it was, it was petty,” said family member Leonard Freeman.

Police didn’t reveal how the women were killed. They said only that Jackson and Cosby were killed “in different ways.”

LeQuetia Jackson said her sister was beaten to death.

Authorities believe they were killed elsewhere and their bodies were moved to the location where they were found.

Investigators are looking for Cosby’s vehicle, a silver 2006 Kia Sorrento with drive out paper tags.

Anyone with information about the murders or the stolen vehicle is asked to call the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 866-248-8477.

    @ Diva, the fact that they were dumped near a dumpster means the killer(s) wanted to send a message.

    So sad. Prayers for the families. That’s too crazy.

  • Nakeya_J or Keke thanks to Unshake

    @Sandra a message to who?! I hope its not drug related.

  • Sandra Rose

    @ Nakeya_J: I think it could be drug related.

  • deedeegirl

  • SummerBaby

  • Diva

    @sandra, it’s still horrible regardless. Senseless killing.

  • OutsidetheBox

    :confused: Whaaa. This just took all the wind outta my gossip sails. Beautiful girls too. Beat to death? The masculine one right? Hmm. We sure it wasn’t some fellas? Upset perhaps with these women who are not interested in their advances? IDK. I hope it wasn’t something as petty and heartbreaking as that. I’m pissed. Beat to death says something. I guess the dumpster does too but for some reason that violence jumped out of me. šŸ˜

  • OutsidetheBox

    Out *at me. I don’t kill. :no: Might steal your man, but I don’t kill. :nono:

    The feminine one was beaten to death. The police said they died in different ways.

  • hell_on_heels

    Even if/when their families found out what really happened, in essence they’ll never have “closure”. My thoughts & prayers are with their families at this time. I don’t care how many job opportunities in Texas, I will NEVER move there!!!

  • Carrington

    I’ll have to tell my baby about this when he comes back from spring break. She waited on us every Sunday at Starbucks after church.

    She said I have a “uppity” child because he always orders a, “Venti white chocolate mocha with 5 pumps, a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg & vanilla.” #RIP

  • oohlalalun

    May these young ladies RIP. I have a bad feeling that this is a bouble hate crime. They were black, lesbians living in TX. We all know how they get down over there. Have you all read about the Alfred Wright case from Jasper,Tx? There is no way that fould play is not involved

  • Gigi26

    :no: and they had great grandmama out worried :no: RIP to these women, no one deserves to be beaten like that.

  • libra80sbaby

    This is so sad. A friend of mine had a girlfriend that was beat to death because she was a stud lesbian that refused the drunken advances of some dudes. They wanted to “show” her that she wasn’t a man even though she acted and dressed like one. She was also sexually assaulted. This situation feels kind of like that one. I think it may be a hate crime. SMH this is so sad :(

  • Man, I just don’t careā„¢


  • Miany

    Hopefully the convenience store had a surveillance system that caught the subject dumping the bodies. …senseless killings
    I pray the families find peace.

  • Jdore

    Smh. RIP ladies :praying: for their families

  • Hearts~n~Kisses

    :pray: for the families of these ladies. :no: This is just so sad.

  • MisTaken if you nasty *closes housecoat* :winky:

    We still in here :no: People are so cavalier about people’s lives. It means nothing these days

    Long morning already :(

  • Nakeya_J or Keke thanks to Unshake

    @sandra, can we get out of this sad post. I don’t even feel right trying to tell jokes in here. :kona:

  • Gigi26

    I’m going to dismiss myself, because I want to ask a question but the timing is inappropriate :kona:

  • FuturedocDonte

  • Nakeya_J or Keke thanks to Unshake

    I’m going back downstairs…..

  • Man, I just don’t careā„¢

    :think: … and it was “drug related” and they staying with one of their great-grandma’s and driving a 2006… two thousand SIX KIA?

    Um… yeah. I don’t think drugs were involved.
