Judith Erin O'Donnell, also known as "Judy" or "Judi" was a young woman who disappeared in 1980. She was also known to use the alias name of "Tuffy" as both a first or last name. She also used the name Erin O'Dey or Erin O'Day, or Judith O'Day. Foul play is suspected in her case.
Judy dropped out of high school to become famous. She had a great singing voice, was prone to the arts, and had the dream to be "discovered" in New York City. Like so many before her and after, that dream was quickly squashed and she found herself homeless. She spent time at shelters, covenant house called us occasionally, and on 'friends' couches. Judy spent a lot of time at discos and clubs and was particularly fond of Studio 54. She would charge thousands of dollars of phone calls on her parents' phone number (when you still could). After their last visit to Baltimore for a family Thanksgiving gathering, the family never saw Judy again. She was at the Young People's Concert in Washington DC for Reagan's inaugural (as seen by her sister on TV, the Reagan library does not have the footage). She was never heard from or seen again after January 19, 1981.
Judy was arrested in New York City and in South Carolina for prostitution. She was known to do drugs. She hitchhiked to her grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary from New York to Minnesota just a year before vanishing.
