Tiffany Valiante’s Unsolved Case
It has been more than seven years since Dianne and Stephen Valiante were told by authorities that their 18-year-old daughter, Tiffany, had taken her own life, struck and killed by a New Jersey Transit (NJT) Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) train, close to midnight on July 12, 2015, near mile marker 45, five miles from their Mays Landing home. Law enforcement officials believe Tiffany walked the five miles over roadways that had no street lights and for most of it in her bare feet. Tiffany suffered from nyctophobia…a fear of the dark. The parents, along with numerous forensic experts, have consistently labeled the suicide determination the product of an investigatory rush to judgement. And they’ve appealed, through their attorney Paul R. D’Amato and his law firm, to have the case reopened. To no avail. But the Valiantes, Attorney D’Amato, and many others in and beyond New Jersey believe there’s still hope for #JusticeForTiffany and that the new Unsolved Mysteries (Netflix) episode – Mystery At Mile Marker 45 – will be a catalyst for new information leading to answers the lingering troubling questions about Tiffany’s death: Was she the victim of murder? Was her death an accident, the victim of a prank that got fatally out of hand? Why was her death so quickly ruled a suicide without first conducting a full-scale autopsy? Why? Why? Why?
