PORT BOLIVAR, Texas – Investigators are still looking for the killer who dumped the bodies of two Houston women in Port Bolivar last week.

Britney Cosby, 24, died of blunt force trauma and Crystal Jackson, also 24, was shot to death, according to autopsy results.

Galveston County Sheriff’s investigators believe the couple was killed in Houston before their bodies were dumped behind a Bolivar convenience store.

Relatives were in Bolivar Tuesday to help pass out flyers of a possible suspect.

"This is really hard, very hurtful because I know we all have to leave here, but it’s just not right for someone to take their life like that and throw you away like garbage,"said Patricia Nixon, Cosby’s grandmother. "That’s just wrong."

"Whoever you are, you took a child from a child. I stand with her God baby today. Man you need to do something, because you hurt my family," said John Cook, Crystal Jackson’s uncle. "Please, God knows. Please, turn him in. Justice has to be served."

Authorities released a sketch Monday of the possible suspect who was seen with the women the night they disappeared. He’s described as a black man, about 6 feet tall with an average build. He is believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s.

They are also looking for the couple’s stolen vehicle, a 2006 silver Kia SUV.

Investigators say they’re sorting through several tips about the case.
