Suspect held in slayings of lesbian couple did not approve of his daughter’s gay lifestyle

Crystal Jackson and Larry Cosby

Homicide investigators believe a Houston man held in connection with the murders of a lesbian couple did not approve of his daughter’s lifestyle.

Larry Crosby, Jr., 46, is charged with 2 counts of tampering with evidence in the murders of his daughter, Britney Cosby, and her girlfriend, Crystal Jackson, both 24.

A beer deliveryman discovered the womens’ bodies next to a dumpster behind the Fisherman’s Cove Food Mart in the 700 block of Highway 87 in Port Bolivar, Texas on Friday, March 7. The bodies were dumped between the garbage bin and an abandoned, boarded up building.

Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby

According to a coroner’s report, Britney, pictured right, died of blunt force trauma to the head and her neck was broken. Crystal was shot to death.

Police arrested Cosby a day after he attended a candlelight vigil for his daughter on Wednesday.

At the vigil, Larry Cosby said he would miss his daughter’s “smile, her bubbliness, her spontaneity.”

“She was like my twin. She looked like me. She acted like me. Her features were like mine. Her hands were like mine,” he said. “Everything about her was just like me. When she was born, my mama said, ‘Boy, it looked like you had that child.’?”

Cosby spoke with investigators at the vigil. Then agreed to follow them to police headquarters for another interview. He was read his rights when he could not explain how his fingerprint was found at the crime scene.

Police discovered signs of extreme violence at Crosby’s residence in the South Acres area. Officials described a “blood bath” in the bedroom of Cosby’s house.

According to Chron.com, investigators armed with search warrants recovered carpeting, cleaning supplies, and other evidence from the home. A broken shutter found at the crime scene matched shutters from Larry Cosby’s home.

Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby

Britney Cosby’s mother, Loranda Remer, said Larry Cosby had difficulty accepting his daughter’s homosexual lifestyle.

“He would throw it in her face,” Remer said, adding that her daughter quoted Larry Cosby as saying, “Don’t throw that gay (expletive) around in this house.”

Family members defended Cosby, saying he did not have a history of fighting with his daughter.

Reached via phone by Chron.com, Annie Cosby, 90, said her grandson enjoyed a good relationship with his daughter.

“I never saw them having a misunderstanding or anything like that,” she said, adding that Larry Cosby was not homophobic.

Both women lived with Annie and Crystal’s 5-year-old daughter in Annie’s 1,200 sq. ft. Houston home.

Annie still mourns the loss of her great-granddaughter, Britney.

“She took good care of me,” said Annie, who is wheelchair-bound. “She paid my bills, would do my grocery shopping, cooking – all of that. I don’t know what I’m going to do now.”

Larry Cosby had an extensive criminal history. He served a two-year prison sentence for failing to register as a sex offender. He was convicted two decades ago of sexually assaulting Remer when she was 22.

Larry Cosby is being held in the Galveston County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. The charges may be upgraded to capital murder, officials said.

    There are a lot of people who live destructive lifestyles that involve all kinds of chaos and evil deeds. These women just cared about each other and weren’t trying to hurt anyone. It’s very sad to see people so weak in the mind that they resort to violence because they can’t control their emotions. He deserves whatever he gets and may those young women R.I.P.

    So was on the internets… and they sayin he felt some kind of way bout her being :lick: but wasn’t really trippin hard.

    But then he asked her for some money and she said she ain’t have it, but took her ol lady to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.

    So when they got back, he to trippin hard bout her takin a chick to Mardi Gras but not helpin out dad. Words were had. But they landed on him callin her a dyke and her sayin she was more “man” than him. And he snapped.

    Just foolishness all the way around. It sounds like this dude should been locked up anyway. You know the thing about molestors and rapists, if they get caught for one, you know there are others that you don’t know about. Sad these girls had to lose their lives. SMH.

    @Man that type of stuff kills me. She’s taking care of his grand mother and was saving up for a trip for her and her girl. So the fukk what if she didn’t have the money. Find it somewhere else. She doesn’t have to give it to you. :no: crazy ass negro. Personally, knowing he had raped my mother, I wouldn’t so much as keep a relationship with him to where he felt comfortable that he could ask me for money. :tea:

    Police still don’t know what he did with her SUV. Surveillance video shows it entering the Galveston Ferry Landing at 9:18 p.m. on March 6 and exiting on the Port Bolivar side about 20 minutes later. The bodies were found the next morning. :no:

    It’s this chick on my TL who like to do that worry face pose with the camera tilted… y’all know what I’m talking about.. :lol:

    Sounds like he was planning on either selling it (if he had not already for a quick turn around) or was planning on using it for later plans. Glad they got his butt off the street as fast as they did.

    I believe Briteny Crosby was messed with sexually as a child. And not a coincidence the father has been in trouble for sexual crimes. Who knows who he brought around her or what he did to her, that she can’t remember.

  42. 42
    Sandra Rose says:

    @ MsChavo: I firmly believe a troubled father-daughter relationship is the reason many women turn lesbian. In Britney’s case, she probably wanted to replace her father by becoming a better man than him. :no:

    Sandra, what do you think about a situation on the other end of the spectrum? I grew up w/a girl who lost her mother at a young age. She was an only child and her dad doted on her. She was a beautiful girl, e.g., the “it” girl, and she started out dating men. ONE dude broke her heart, and she ended up w/a very dominant ‘butch’ girlfriend. We never understood how she could have had any man she wanted, but ended up w/this older woman who seemed more interested in controlling her than in just loving her.

  45. 45
    Sandra Rose says:

    @ Nancy Drew: You say her father doted on her. Well, what looks to the outside to be a close father-daughter relationship could actually be something far different. The fact that her mother died when she was young could mean your friend didn’t successfully pass through the Electra stage, where she symbolically kills off her mother to be with her father. We see what happened to the singer Usher whose father wash’t around for him to symbolically “fight” for his mother’s Love and affections. He is now dating women to replace his mother as his Love object. So the fact that your friend is with a dominant butch woman could mean she is trying to win her father’s Love and affection. This is the way our brains protect us from desiring to engage in sexual intercourse with our parents.

    See the destructive force behind sexual sins and abomination like homosexuality, rape and incest. It is void of natural love and affection for human life.

    Carrington says:

    Wait.. so you’re disgusted by your daughters “sexually deviant” homosexual lifestyle, yet your disgusting a$$ is a convicted RAPIST?

    I’m trying to understand how, exactly, that quantifies you as the moral authority on ANYTHING.

    See, Sandra Mae – this is exactly why I can’t get with your desire to shame folk for being who they are… this is what you end up with when you combine ignorance, arrogance, intolerance, pride, and giving two-$hits what other people think.

    I’ve raised my baby to be whomever he chooses to be – as long as he isn’t breaking any laws or spirits while he does it. I made SURE I would kiss him in the mall, put my arm around his shoulder, hold his hand, tell him I love him, etc. every single chance I got. It shamed him at first, but I had a plan to make sure that he understand that what PEOPLE thought of him was unimportant.

    NOW, he gets on my nerve walking all close on the heel of my damn shoe. LOL He walks in the door, he walks straight up to me and gives me a hug and puts his cheek out for me to kiss him. When I come in from work, he hears that garage go up and the first thing he does is comes downstairs to meet me in the kitchen with a hug and, “How was your day?”

    Even after I’ve cussed his a$$ out, before he goes to be for the night, he comes to tell me good night and gives me a hug and I give him a kiss – and he just turned 18 in February.

    What we NEED to stop doing is accepting the fact that people are people and everybody has a different way of handling $hit – what you eat doesn’t make me fat. This man may very well be subscribing to the thought process that his daughter was “abnormal” and it could’ve bothered him to the point where he couldn’t deal with it.

    Suppose he subscribed to the idea after reading all of YOUR rants, Sandra?

    I tend to have a healthy respect for that which I don’t understand – no matter what it is.
