Five years ago, 18-year-old Tiffany Valiante was struck and killed by a New Jersey Transit train. Investigators ruled the incident a suicide despite the insistence by Tiffany’s family that murder was the actual cause of death. The D’Amato Law Firm has been working with the Valiante family to prove that Tiffany’s death was an intentional act done by another person. Tiffany’s parents will continue to fight for the justice of their daughter. Read this article for more information on Tiffany’s ongoing case and for photos from the July 12th memorial ceremony.
On July 12, 2015, 18-year-old Tiffany Valiante was struck and killed by a New Jersey Transit train, leaving investigators to label her death a suicide. An autopsy, rape kit, and DNA test were never conducted despite the lack of clothing and shoes on her body when she was found. Tiffany’s family has been working for five years to prove that her death was not a suicide, but that she was murdered. With the help of independent pathologists and the D’Amato Law Firm, the pursuit to prove the murder of Tiffany still continues. Sunday marks the five-year anniversary of Tiffany’s death, as well as the annual celebration of her life at the Valiante home in Mays Landing. The Valiante family, as well as those who have been working closely on the case, will continue to investigate until justice for Tiffany has been served. To read more click here.
