The father of one of the two women
found dead last week in Houston was arrested on Thursday.
The bodies of Britney Cosby and Crystal
Jackson, both 24, were found last week on the Bolivar Peninsula next
to a dumpster behind a store. According to the Houston
Chronicle, the women began dating in 2012.
James Larry Cosby, 46, is charged with
two counts of tampering with evidence. Deputies said the charges
could be upgraded to capital murder but declined to elaborate.
Investigators believe the women were
killed elsewhere and their bodies were moved. Jackson died from a
gunshot and Cosby from blows to her head.
Britney Cosby and her father were
living under the same roof – the house of Britney's
great-grandmother, Annie Cosby, who denied accounts that James had a
hard time accepting that his daughter was gay.
“I never saw them having a
misunderstanding or anything like that,” she said.
Cosby is being held in the Galveston
County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail.
