Death: July 25, 1988 (age 10)
On July 27, 1988, the bodies of Judith and Maria Barsi were
discovered by fire fighters responding to a call from a neighbor
reporting a fire at the Barsi house. The date of the murder has never
been determined; the police have said that Jozsef could have killed his
wife and child on July 25 or July 26.
It is believed that, after realizing that Maria was planning to leave
him, Jozsef entered Judith's second-floor bedroom and shot her in the
head; he then shot Maria in the same way as she ran down the corridor
toward her daughter's room. He then drenched the bodies in gasoline and
set the house on fire before shooting himself in the garage.
