Authorities have identified the bodies of a lesbian couple that were found near a garbage bin on the Bolivar Peninsula near Galveston.
The Galveston County Sheriff's Office identified the victims as Britney Cosby and Crystal Jackson, both 24 years old and from Houston. Jackson had a 5-year-old daughter. The couple had reportedly lived together for two years.
Their bodies were found near a store in Port Bolivar on March 7. Authorities believe the women were killed elsewhere and their bodies dumped near the bin.
Investigators are trying to determine how the women died. It’s also unclear whether the killings were a hate crime or there was some other motive for the murder.
The bodies were discovered about 7:45 a.m. Friday.
Authorities are looking for the victims' vehicle, a silver 2006 Kia Sorento SUV with gray trim.
