Mom: Father killed lesbian daughter and her partner ‘for being gay’
17 March 2014

A Texas dad is being accused of murdering his own daughter and her partner because he disagreed with their ‘lifestyle’.

Police believe James Cosby, 46, bludgeoned daughter Britney Cosby to death and shot her girlfriend Crystal Jackson on 6 March.

The bodies were found the next day near a dumpster around 7.30am the next day outside a Fisherman’s Cove food mart.

Both women were only 24.

Britney’s mother has told police that Cosby was angry his daughter was gay.

‘He said it to me a few times that he did not like the idea of her being gay,’ Loranda McDonald told KHOU-TV.

‘But, like I told him, there’s nothing we could do about that. That’s who she is. We can’t change her lifestyle.’

Cosby, a registered sex offender, was released from prison after 12 years in October. His daughter and her grandmother allowed him to move in and live in the garage.

The murder weapons have not been recovered and Britney’s car, a 2006 Kia Sorento, is still missing.

In the house, pools of blood were discovered and fingerprints were found on a piece of paper that was on the bodies.

And in his bedroom, the Quran was open to a page condemning homosexuality.

But there is a further mystery. The man that dumped the bodies as seen on CCTV cameras appears to be far shorter than Cosby, who is 6 foot five inches.

But Cosby’s mother is certain her ex is involved. She said he left the man over his violent tendencies.

‘I think they should lock him up, don’t let him out,’ she said. ‘Give him the chair, I want him to suffer.’
