No Suspects; Witness Traumatized

Philadelphia Inquirer

Police have no suspects in the slaying of Ennis William Cosby, and the key witness is too traumatized to help detectives draw a sketch of the gunman, Police Chief Willie L. Williams said Friday.

In a news conference on the Thursday morning killing, Williams identified the woman who summoned police as “an individual who witnessed a homicide.” He said she had witnessed “some portion” of the murder.

“We do not have a sketch to give out at this time because the witness is very traumatized by the event and by the public exposure that occurred,” Williams said.
