(Scroll down for video) A woman and her lover are dead after a father did not like the fact that they are lesbians, police in Texas said.
Sheriff’s deputies said that they have arrested the father of one of the women, who were found dead near a convenience store in Bolivar.
The father of Britney Cosby, James Larry Cosby, is charged with two counts of tampering with evidence in connection with the death of his daughter and her friend, Crystal Jackson, Galveston County Police said.
The two women were found dead in Houston, next to a dumpster. A delivery person found the victims at 7:30 a.m. when he threw away garbage in the bin.
Cosby told several family members that he does not like the fact that his daughter was gay. Detectives suspect that the young women, both 24 years old, were killed elsewhere and dumped outside the store.
Deputies said that Britney Cosby died of blunt force trauma and Jackson was shot dead. Detectives said that they found Crosby’s fingerprint at the crime scene.
Cosby is being held in the Galveston County Jail on $500,000 bail. Detectives said that Crosby may be charged with first degree murder.
