PORT BOLIVAR, Texas (AP) — Authorities have identified two women whose bodies were found near a garbage bin on the Bolivar (BAH'-lee-vur) Peninsula near Galveston.
The Galveston County Sheriff's Office has identified the victims as Britney Cosby and Crystal Jackson, both 24 years old and from Houston.
