A Texas dad disgusted with his daughter’s lesbian lifestyle murdered the young woman and her lover, the girl’s mother said in a shocking twist to a gruesome case.
James Cosby, 46, bludgeoned his daughter Britney Cosby to death and shot her lover, Crystal Jackson, on March 6 before dumping the bodies near the ferry gate in Port Bolivar, Texas, police believe.
The bodies were found near a Dumpster around 7:30 a.m. the next day outside a Fisherman’s Cove food mart.
Both women were 24.
Britney’s mother told KHOU-TV 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 the TV station. “But, like I told him, there’s nothing we could do about that. That’s who she is. We can’t change her lifestyle.”
Capital murder charges are pending against James Cosby, a registered sex offender released from prison in October, Galveston Sheriff Office Capt. Barry Cook told the Daily News. The murder weapons have not been recovered and Britney Cosby’s recently purchased 2006 Kia Sorento is still missing.
Cosby moved in to the home only in October after he was released following a two-year stint in prison. His daughter and her grandmother lived at the home and let him move in.
In his bedroom, which Cook described as a converted garage, the murder suspect had a copy of the Koran open to a page which talks about homosexuality as a sin, family advocate Quanell X told KHOU. The find may give some insight into Cosby’s disturbed mindset, the advocate said.
“It’s quite unfortunate but he had a real, real warped understanding, in my opinion, of the religion of Islam and its position on the gay lifestyle and what one should do,” Quanell X said.
Police, though, say they are still searching for a motive in the gruesome crime.
“We don’t know (that their sexual orientation) was a contributing factor to their deaths,” Cook said. “We haven’t ruled it out, but we haven’t proved it, either.”
Cops may also be looking for a second suspect. James Cosby, described as standing 6-feet-5, was much taller than the man captured on surveillance cameras in Bolivar dumping the bodies. A police composite sketch also shows a man who looks slightly different, Cook said.
But Britney Cosby’s mother is certain her ex was involved. She said she left the man because of his violent tendencies.
He served 10 years after a 1994 sexual assault and then two more, ending in October, for failing to register as an offender.
“I think they should lock him up, don’t let him out,” McDonald told KHOU-TV. “Give him the chair, I want him to suffer.”

Warped in what way?In which version of Sharia does Islamic law not mandate death for lesbians?The Qur’an says:
“Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women – bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.” (4:15) The “other ways” that Allah has ordained for them all involve death.
Yet nonetheless, even though Cosby left the Qur’an open to a passage condemning homosexuality, “police, though, say they are still searching for a motive in the gruesome crime.”
That is the very definition of willful ignorance.
Last year, almost wholly ignored by major media, we posted Nebraska: Muslim attacks relative with crowbar over lesbian engagement (ie, attempted honor killing).
