Bill Cosby’s 44-Year-Old Daughter Dies

Very sad news. Bill Cosby’s daughter, Ensa, has reportedly died. She is said to have passed Friday in Massachusetts. She was 44. Last year, Ensa made headlines when she released a lengthy statement defending her father amidst his rape controversy. She stated,

The public persecution of my dad, my kids’ grandfather, and the cruelty of the media and those who speak out branding my father a ‘rapist’ without ever knowing the truth and who shame our family and our friends for defending my dad, makes all of this so much worse for my family and my children. When people are so quick to cast hate and make accusations of horrific violence against my dad, they are callous in their carelessness about the harm they are causing to others. 

Unfortunately, this isn’t Cosby and his wife Camille’s first child that has died. Together, they had five children, Erika, Erinn, Ensa, Evin, and Ennis. Their only son, Ennis, was murdered on January 16, 1997, while changing a flat tire on the side of Interstate 405 in Los Angeles. The cause of Ensa’s death is unknown. According to reports she had kidney issues.
