Murdered Daughter Because She Was Gay
Larry Cosby

On the 6th of March 2014 in Texas, 24 year old Britney Cosby was beaten by her father, Larry Cosby, and left in a pool of blood before he strangled her to death. When Britney’s girlfriend Crystal Jackson, also 24, turned up at the home she was shot dead. Their bodies were dumped near a dumpster and found the following morning. 

Britney and Crystal were a loved up couple for years and had huge plans for the future. Crystal had a 5 year old daughter called Zaniah, who was left in the car when her mother was murdered in the home. They were supposed to be going on a field trip. 

Larry hated his daughter being gay. In 1994 Cosby was sentenced to 10 years for sexual assault and served two months six months prior to the murders for failing as registering as a sex offender. Upon released he moved in the family home Britney lived in with her grandma, Annie Lee Cosby. 

In August 2016, Larry Cosby was sentenced to life without parole

I believe that we have the opportunity to make every single day of our lives magic. Some days we make that happen, and some days we don’t, but it’s always our choice.

I support you in making your own choices, but I want to encourage you to try things on this list that might even have an inkling of interest in your brain. What’s the worst thing that happens if you try it and it doesn’t work? After all, as Roald Dahl so astutely observed, “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”.

So I’ve been thinking about this a lot since the last ‘The TAZ Zone’ where Griffin was saying that he was so sure Magnus was going to take the chalice in 11th Hour and he had a whole thing planned for it.

I think Magnus would have taken it. If not taken it, I think he would’ve had a lot harder time deciding whether he wanted to go back and fix things with Julia and Raven’s Roost. Julia was the single most important thing in Magnus’ life (post Stolen Century) and I think he would’ve 100% taken the cup to at least try and make things right.

But I think the thing that stopped him was Lucas Miller. Magnus was very upset with Lucas for what he did in the Crystal Kingdom Arc and when he was questioning him towards the end Lucas said something along the lines of “Wouldn’t you do anything to save the one person who meant the most to you?” And I think Magnus saw the love that Lucas had for his mother and while different, the drive and passion behind what Lucas had done for Maureen probably rivaled what Magnus felt watching his last moments with Julia with June in the White Space. And I think if Magnus hadn’t seen the problems that came with someone who couldn’t let go of the past, who couldn’t accept that their loved one was gone, he would’ve taken the cup. But having witnessed the tragedy of Lucas and Maureen, he knew that while he’d always love and miss Julia, he had to let her stay in the past.
