Murder Victim. The only son of comedian Bill Cosby and his wife, Camille. Ennis also had four sisters, two younger than he and two older, whose names, like their brother, all begin with the letter E: Erika, Erinn, Ensa and Evin. Their father said the E stood for excellence. In 1988 Ennis was diagnosed with dyslexia, he became determined to help others with similar learning problems after his graduation from Atlanta's Morehouse College in 1992. The night of his murder he was going to visit a woman friend when he pulled off the San Diego Freeway at the Mulholland exit with a flat tire. He had placed the spare tire on his car and apparently was replacing lug nuts when he was shot by Mikhail "Michael" Markhasev. He would be later apprehended in March and charged with first-degree murder and attempted robbery. Markhasev was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. He would finally confess to the murder while in prison serving his sentence in February 2001. At the time of his death, Ennis had earned a master's in education and was pursuing a doctorate at Columbia University. Ennis was 27 years old at the time of his death.
