The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office is offering an $818 reward to anyone who can provide information leading authorities to a missing vehicle connected to the killings of two Houston women found dead in Port Bolivar last month.

The money was raised and donated to the sheriff’s office during a series of statewide vigils organized by gay rights activist C.D. Kirven, the Get Equal organization and the Living Faith Covenant Church.

The vehicle, a silver 2006 Kia Sorento with gray trim, belonged to Britney Cosby, 24, who was found dead with her girlfriend, Crystal Jackson, also 24, near a metal trash container outside a Port Bolivar convenience store about a mile from the Galveston-Bolivar ferry on March 7.

Cosby’s SUV, which has paper tags, was recorded leaving the ferry on the Port Bolivar side of the Galveston Ship Channel about 9:41 p.m. the night before the women’s bodies were found, according to a police affidavit.

James Larry Cosby, Britney’s father, was later arrested and charged with two counts of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence with the intent to impair a human corpse after investigators discovered bloodstains in his home and other evidence linking him to his daugther’s death, including a shutter found near their bodies matching a missing shutter at the Houston residence, according to an arrest  affidavit.

Cosby remains in jail on bonds totaling $500,000.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff’s office tip line at 866-248-8477 or Galveston County Crime Stoppers at 409-763-8477.
