Press of Atlantic City Covers Mishandling of Evidence in 2015 Valiante Case

D'Amato Law Firm

The gross mishandling of evidence in the suspicious 2015 death of Mays Landing teen Tiffany Valiante has gained media traction, with the Press of Atlantic City picking up the story of evidence misconduct and contamination.

A discovery motion was finally granted to Valiante family attorney Paul D’Amato in late 2020, which ordered the DNA testing of key evidence collected at the time of Valiante’s death.

A March 2022 DNA test found that the key evidence was so grossly mishandled as to render the evidence to be of “no probative scientific value.” The gaining attention to the case aided by the Press of Atlantic City keeps the spotlight on the misconduct of the police and lack of justice for the Valiante family.
