GALVESTON, Texas – Sheriff’s deputies have arrested the father of one of the women found dead near a convenience store in Bolivar.

Britney Cosby’s father, James Larry Cosby, is charged with 2 counts of tampering with evidence in connection with the death of his daughter and her friend, Crystal Jackson, according to the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office.

The two Houston women’s bodies were found next to a dumpster outside the Fisherman’s Cove store in the 700 block of State Highway 87. A beer deliveryman found the victims around 7:30 a.m. when he took out some trash.

Loranda McDonald, Cosby’s mother, said that James was angry that his daughter was gay.

“He said it to me a few times that he did not like the idea of her being gay,” said McDonald.

Detectives believe the young women, who were involved in a relationship, were killed somewhere else and dumped at the store. Deputies said Britney Cosby died from blunt force trauma and Jackson was shot to death. They were both only 24 years old.
