The girl who voiced Ducky from The Land Before Time and Annie-Marie from All Dogs Go to Heaven was brutally murdered by her father.

Since her unlikely discovery at a skating rink five years earlier, 10-year-old Judith Barsi had quickly soared to child stardom. Over her short career, Judith appeared in over 70 commercials, several episodes of television shows, and four films. Her overnight success took its toll on her father József, who was an alcoholic out-of-work plumber. While his daughter was pulling in $100,000 a year, József struggled to find consistent work, and he took out his jealousy on both his wife and young Judith. In 1988, his paranoia spiraled to the point where he decided to shoot his wife and daughter in the head before using the gun on himself. What an awful, awful tragedy.

Here is one of Judith's commercials. Was she adorable? "Yep, yep, yep!"
