DEAD: ON THIS DATE
Judith Barsi (aged 10)
Judith Eva Barsi (June 6, 1978 – July 25, 1988) was an American child actress of the 1980s. Barsi began her career in television, making appearances in commercials and television series as well as in the films Jaws: The Revenge, The Land Before Time and All Dogs Go to Heaven, providing the voices for animated characters in the latter two.
DEATH: Judith was last seen riding her bike on the morning of July 25, 1988. That evening, József shot her in the head while she was sleeping, and then murdered Maria. He then spent the next two days wandering around the house, and said during a phone conversation with Barsi’s agent the next night that he intended to move out for good and just needed time to “say goodbye to my little girl”. Following the phone call, he poured gasoline on the dead bodies and set them on fire before heading to the garage and shooting himself in the head with a .32 caliber pistol. On August 9, 1988, Barsi and her mother were interred at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
