Judith Erin O’Donnell had big dreams. Her dreams were so big and her confidence in her talent and beautiful singing voice was so strong, that she dropped out of high school to pursue her dreams. She moved to the Greenwich Village area of New York City, but her dreams started to fade as she struggled to survive in the big city. Judy got caught up in the party scene of the famous Studio 54 and wound up using drugs, couch surfing when she wasn’t sleeping on the streets, and soliciting prostitution.
Thanksgiving of 1980 was the last time Judy’s family have been in her presence, but her sister claims to have seen Judy on tv amongst the crowd of the Young People’s Concert for President Reagan’s Inaugeral on January 19th, 1981. East Brunswick, NJ, is another location Judy was reportedly spotted last. She was known to hitchhike and may have been sexually assaulted by someone who picked her up. Other aliases Judy O’Donnell has gone by are: Judith Tuffy, Tuffy O’Donnell and Erin O’Day. Judy is 5’10” tall, approximately 130-140 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. She has a scar under her chin and one on her right arm. Her tonsils and adenoids have been removed and one of her front teeth are doscolored.
