So, it’s been 25 years. 25 years since Judith Barsi (best known as the voice of Ducky in the Land Before Time, although she was in other movies as well, like All Dogs go to Heaven, and Jaws: Revenge).
She was only 10.
Her father was crazy.

"Judith was last seen riding her bike on the morning of Monday, July 25, 1988. That evening, József shot Judith in the head while she was asleep in her room, and then shot his wife, Maria. József spent the next two days wandering around the house, and said during a phone call with Judith’s agent on Tuesday night that he intended to move out for good, and just needed time to “say goodbye to my little girl.” He then poured gasoline on the bodies and set them on fire. After incinerating the bodies, József went into the garage and shot himself in the head with a .32 caliber pistol.On August 9, 1988, Barsi and her mother were interred in unmarked graves at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.”
József was her father, Maria was her mother.
Judith and Maria’s story is proof that if somebody is abusive, then you should leave them instantly, not only for your own good, but for the good of others as well.
Let’s not let anything like this ever happen again, although, I’m sure things like this happen all the time, but just aren’t well known because those involved aren’t famous.
"Yup, yup, yup." ~ Ducky’s catchphrase
RIP Maria and Judith Barsi
