    • EDWARD CUMBERBATCH Published: October 29, 1981

      Edward A. Cumberbatch, a journalist who worked for The New York Post, Newsweek magazine and CBS-TV, died on Saturday in Los Angeles as a result of a bullet wound. He was 43 years old.

      A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department said that Mr. Cumberbatch had been waiting at a bus stop in West Los Angeles on Oct. 7 when he was shot in the back of the head at close range ''for no apparent reason.''

      Mr. Cumberbatch worked for The Post in the early 1960's and then Newsweek, where he covered the racial disturbances in this area. Later, he was an assignment editor at CBS-TV and a member of the production staff of ''Black News'' at Channel 5.

      Born in New York, he was graduated from the City College of New York. He moved to Los Angeles two years ago. Mr. Cumberbatch, whose marriage to Kay Lindsey ended in divorce, is survived by a son, Stephen, and a daughter, Juana, both of Los Angeles, and a brother, James of New York.
