The daughter of Bill Cosby passed away on Friday night at the age of 44. Ensa Cosby died in Massachusetts, where the family has a large estate.
A spokesperson for her father, Andrew Wyatt, announced on Monday afternoon that her death was caused by renal disease, with Ensa having suffered from kidney problems throughout her life. Her passing comes one month before her father is set to be retried on rape charges in Pennsylvania this April.
This is the second child Cosby has lost, with son Ennis having been murdered in 1997 during a botched carjacking in Los Angeles. Ensa is survived by her parents Bill and Camille, her siblings Erika, Erinn and Evin and her husband Martin McLean. Ensa was a yoga instructor at a studio just a few miles from the family compound in Shelburne Falls. Bill and his wife Camille spend almost all of their time on the 21-acre estate, and have bought up hundreds of acres of land bordering the property to maintain their privacy. Residents of the town told DailyMail.com back in 2015 that Bill and Camille are seldom seen in town, preferring to stay behind the gates of their compound. It is also on that compound where the family buried Ennis after his death, with his body laid to rest beneath the herb garden on the property.
