“Mr. Cosby and Mrs. Cosby are extremely upset. Needless to say, losing a child is one of the most severe things to happen to anybody, and they are in significant grief."

Ennis, the only son of the American comedian, was shot as he stopped to change a flat tire on his Mercedes-Benz convertible near an off-ramp of the San Diego Freeway. He suffered a single gunshot wound.

Ennis was reportedly on his way to see a woman friend when he called her on his mobile phone to say he had to change a tire.

He asked for her help. He wanted her to come and help illuminate the area. When she arrived, Ennis was already shot. She immediately called the police.

MOTIVE BEHIND KILLING

Police investigators said that robbery might have been the motive behind the shooting. They launched a manhunt for a white male suspect.

Ennis was on a winter holiday when the incident happened. He was a doctoral student at Columbia University’s Teachers College in New York.

“Mr. Cosby and Mrs. Cosby are extremely upset. Needless to say, losing a child is one of the most severe things to happen to anybody, and they are in significant grief," said Los Angeles Police Commander Tim McBride.

"But he's asked us to go forward and do everything we can to locate the suspects, and we intend to do that."

TWO CHILDREN LOST

Bill and his wife Camille Hanks also lost another child last year. Their daughter Ensa died of renal disease on February 23, 2018. She was 45 years old.

Bill and Camille have two other daughters, Erinn and Evin.

But it was previously reported that Bill has been hiding a secret love child from his wife for more than three decades.

The report claimed that 33-year-old Emon Waller from Florida is the alleged 'secret love child' of Bill with his glamorous employee Mary Waller.

Bill allegedly moved Mary and her son Emon into a $6 million Manhattan townhouse and provided the mother and son a “fat expense account.”
