California family claims murderer of child star haunted their home 30 years later

A family that lives in a home where a child star was murdered 32 years ago believes the girl’s murderer has been haunting their house since they moved in.

The Bernal family moved into their home in Canoga Park, California, in 2001, not knowing anything about the home’s former residents until a neighbor told them.


In 1988, 10-year-old Judith Barsi — who starred in countless commercials and movies like “Jaws: The Revenge,” “All Dogs Go to Heaven,” and “The Land Before Time” — was murdered in her bed by her father, Jozsef Barsi, who went on to kill his wife Maria and then himself.

This is according to an episode of Quibi’s “Murder House Flip.”

Soon after the Bernals moved into their home, they said they started experiencing strange phenomena.

The house had a bad energy when we moved in,” Francisco Bernal said on the show.

The Barsi family claims their garage door opened and closed on its own and they felt cold spots in their home.

“Weird things would happen,” Francisco’s daughter Gaby added. “The garage door would open and close, I had like cold spots in my room. I didn’t really sleep last night at all. I felt like someone was watching me. Stuff like that makes it very real and scary and very unsettling.”

    Charley Manson and coven lived in northern Canoga Park from 1967 until 1969. The Barsi family lived in Canoga Park in the 1980s. How many other homicidal maniacs resided there in what had been a sleepy sheep and goat community strung out along Topanga Blvd? Only in the San Fernando valley? Hardly!

watcha gotta say?
