RECURRING PART Ghost of Jaws child star Judith Barsi ‘is HAUNTING LA home 32 years after she was brutally murdered by drunken dad’

32 years after she was brutally murdered by drunken dad, the ghost of child star Judith Barsi is reportedly haunting her LA home.

The specter of the slain Jaws starlet is said to walk the halls of the house in Canoga Park, California, after her untimely death in 1988.

The Bernal family moved in 19 years ago and soon began to feel a dark presence around them.

They later discovered that Judith Barsi, 10, had been brutally murdered by her father, József Barsi, 55, 13 years earlier in 1988.

That year, little Judith – who appeared in several films, including Jaws: The Revenge, and 50 commercials – was shot in the head when her dad flew into an alcohol-induced rage, reports said.

The Hungarian plumber then shot his wife, Maria Virovacz, 48, and set their remains and the house on fire before shooting himself in the head with a .32-caliber pistol.

At the time, the Los Angeles Times reported that gasoline had been poured on their dead bodies: “The child’s body was found in her bed and the woman’s in a hallway, Police Lt. Warren Knowles said,” the article noted.

“Both had been shot once in the head.”

Years later, the Bernals moved in and started experiencing some strange things in their home.

During the fourth episode of Murder House Flip on the streaming service Quibi, the Bernal family detailed how the garage door would open and close by itself, while cold spots could be felt throughout the home.

Gaby Bernal slept in the same bedroom where Judith was murdered and suffered horrific nightmares.

The paranormal fright-fest prompted the family to give their haunted home a new look with the help of Murder House’s interior designers Joelle Uzyel and Mikel Welch.

These designers, psychics, mediums, and homicide detectives help owners get over the horrific things that happened in their homes.

This time, they got to work ousting the negative vibes from the hallway where Maria Virovacz was murdered, the backyard, and Gaby’s bedroom – and in three days, it was a house transformed.

The dark hallways were repainted and recessed lighting was installed to brighten up their surroundings.

Meanwhile, Gaby’s room was gutted and refitted with French doors, a new paint job and carpet, while an amethyst crystal was added.

The backyard was also overhauled with a new pergola to allow more light into Gaby’s room, as well as an outdoor dining area and gorgeous garden.

Gaby found that she “felt bad energy here, and now it’s dissipated,” while her dad agreed that “the negative energy that we felt in the house is gone already.”

“No more sadness, no more crying. This is one of the greatest things that has happened in my life,” he added.

Previously, the show transformed the Dorothea Puente house, where seven bodies were buried in the yard.

“Not only did Mikel and I make the homes beautiful, but we also gave them ownership of it,” Uzyel told the New York Post.

“It now belongs to them, versus the history that it holds. It’s a new space, and we’re really proud of it.”
