UPDATE: Father Of Murdered Black Lesbian Arrested

There is a shocking update in the story of the Black lesbian couple whose bodies were found dumped near a dumpster in Galveston County over the weekend. James Larry Cosby, the father of one of the victims, has been arrested in connection with the crime.

The Houston Chronicle reports:
James Larry Cosby, 46, of Houston, is charged with two counts of tampering with evidence in the deaths of his daughter, Britney Cosby, and Crystal Jackson, according to the Galveston County Sheriff's Office. Both women were 24. 
Deputies said Cosby is in the Galveston County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. Charges against him, deputies added, may be upgraded to capital murder as the investigation continues.
Cosby was arrested early Thursday morning after investigators interviewed him about the case following a vigil in Houston for the slain women, said Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset.
Tcochesset said statements Cosby made to investigators as well as evidence in the home where he lived with his daughter and his daughter's great-grandmother led to his arrest. He declined to elaborate about what Cosby said or what evidence was found because the case is still being investigated.

Kudos to the Galveston County Sheriffs for making an arrest so quickly in the case. This situation just seems to be getting more and more tragic.
