Father Of Victim In Texas Slaying of Lesbian Couple Held On $500,000 Bail


Police have found their first suspect in the Port Bolivar slaying of a lesbian couple: Larry Cosby, father of victim Britney Cosby.

Larry CosbyCosby's fingerprint was found at the crime scene, and in an interview with Galveston County investigators he was unable to explain its presence. He is now being charged with tampering with evidence and is being held on $500,000 bail. The charge may upgrade to capital murder depending on what investigators find.

Family accounts are conflicting on Cosby's relationship with his daughter. Britney Cosby's mother, Loranda Remer, says that it was strained and that Larry Cosby had difficulty accepting his daughter's orientation and relationship. Larry Cosby's grandmother, however, said that he and his daughter got along just fine. 

Britney's car is still missing, and it could provide insight into where the women were killed as police believe they were killed in one location before being moved to the dumpster where they were found.

  1. Remember: children are always better off with a mother and father

  2. And in other news, recent research suggests that to the degree it is heritable, homosexuality often passes from mother to son or father to daughter.

  3. Assuming he is later charged with murder, I wonder if he will claim his religious freedom entitled him to murder his daughter and her lover?

    After all if religious freedom gives people a legitimate basis to break laws against discrimination, maybe they think other crimes are holy too.

  4. So incredibly senseless. 2 lives lost, and a family ruined...and over what? Because someone is gay? Or more appropriately, because of someone else's hatred over other people being gay.

  9. That's what happened. I can feel it. So can most of you.

  10. Wow, that's some thin evidence to hold him on.

  11. It's not slim evidence that his fingerprint was at the dumpster unless it happened to be a dumpster that the family used all the time. Why would his fingerprint just happen to be at the same dumpster where his daughter's and her partner's bodies were placed in? That's a pretty huge coincidence, especially if the victims were murdered elsewhere then placed in the dumpster, as if they were garbage. Ah, yes, that's very Christian behaviour for you. Kill your daughter before allowing her to sin with another woman. Twisted minds. How can a parent do that to his own flesh and blood?

  12. The dad's house was covered in blood. On the walls, speakers, carpet. He tried to remove it, that's why he's in jail for tampering.

  13. Thin evidence???? That his effing fingerprint was on a random dumpster where his daughter's body had been discarded like a piece of trash??? How much more F*CKING obvious can it be???

  14. What the heck? Christian, you didn't find it notable enough a detail to highlight the part of the story you linked to where police found human blood drenching the carpets of the dad's house??

  15. this case is a heart breaker in so many ways, but bear in mind the bodies were disposed of and found in a trash the message besides being murder, is quite are TRASH!

  16. Execute him. Immediately.

  17. He is a convicted rapist.

  18. Totally agree with JMC on this. C'mon, when you're linking to an article like this, it might be useful to note some pretty major details of the case, like the evidence of a bloodbath inside the house and the fact that AN ENTIRE BLOOD-STAINED SHUTTER was found by the Dumpster with the bodies - and guess what was missing from the house? Not exactly a random coincidence here. And the fact that the dad was completely unable to explain why his fingerprint was at the scene. Oh yeah, and he's also a convicted sex offender who was recently released from jail. Yes, yes, innocent until proven guilty but we're also dealing with evidence here that is WAY more than just a fingerprint - it's sickening, and I hope justice is served. RIP, Britney and Crystal.
