Judith Eva Barsi (June 6, 1978 — July 25, 1988) was an American child actress of the mid-late 1980s.
Barsi suffered from a growth deformity which made her look younger than she actually was, which casting directors exploited: at six years old she played a three year old toddler in the Made-for-TV Movie Fatal Vision, based on the Jeffrey MacDonald story note , and at ten years old she played a seven-year-old on St. Elsewhere.
... but she never lived to see the premieres of The Land Before Time or All Dogs Go to Heaven. She was shot dead, along with her mother, on July 25, 1988 by her abusive father, who committed suicide two days after his crime.
