Ennis Cosby

Born: 1969-04-15 - Died: 1997-01-16
Cause of Death:
Murder


Death Summary: At the age of 27, Ennis was murdered by Mikhail Markhasev.

Markhasev shot Ennis in the head as he was pulled over on the Interstate in Los Angeles to change a flat tire.

Markhasev was eventually caught after incriminating letter that he had written came to light, and he later confessed.

He is now serving a life sentence at Corcoran State Prison.

Bill Cosby started a scholarship in memory of Ennis.

Who was Ennis Cosby : Ennis Cosby was the son of beloved comedian and actor Bill Cosby. Situations that Bill and Ennis shared were sometimes recreated on The Cosby Show between Bill's character Cliff and his fictional son Theo (played by Malcolm-Jamal Warner).

While Theo may have been more famous than Ennis, it is clear that the character would not have been the same without the outside influence of Bill Cosby's son.

    So sad that its been 15 years. I remember the pain felt then and was reminded of my own pain of losing father. He’s been gone almost 20 years now and I wonder everyday how I survive with my new normal. There’s somehow been a safety net taken away when someone dies.
