DNA Evidence Tested for the First Time After Valiante Death

On March 1, the New Jersey Transit Police Department was ordered by Atlantic County Superior Court Judge, John C. Porto, to hand over several pieces of evidence to help solve the death of Tiffany Valiante, an 18-year-old resident of Mays Landing who was struck by a train less than a mile from her home in July 2015. Her death was ruled as a suicide, but the Valiante family strongly believes that foul play contributed to her passing.

A DNA card, t-shirt, a white towel with blood stains, and a folding knife, along with the sweatshirt, shoes, and headband of the victim, are among the items to be tested. This is the first time that these items will be examined by an independent lab, which could be groundbreaking for the ongoing case. Additionally, the Valiante family has required that an axe and keychain be analyzed.

Attorney Paul D’Amato has been fighting on behalf of the family and pushing for crucial DNA testing to be done. Testing will take about two weeks, and the Valiante family is anxiously awaiting the results. If foreign DNA is found on the items, it will be a turning point for the case and the Valiante family.

Paul D’Amato Wins Discovery Motion in Tiffany Valiante Case

Paul D’Amato of the D’Amato Law Firm has been working on Tiffany Valiante’s case since 2015 when Tiffany was killed by a moving train just two hours after leaving her parents home. Her death was ruled a suicide, but the Valiante family and attorney Paul D’Amato reject this theory. It has been confirmed that Tiffany was not suffering from depression and did not die due to suicide. The train that struck her was not a scheduled train, making suicide very unlikely.

Paul D’Amato and many others believe that Tiffany was the victim of foul play and her case involves many unresolved answers that the family would like to uncover. Atlantic County Superior Court Judge John Porto recently enabled Paul D’Amato to reopen discovery and have DNA from the scene tested. This news is extremely beneficial to Tiffany’s case and proves that persistence pays off. Tiffany’s case is no longer a cold case and will continue to be investigated until answers are found.
