Shocking new details have emerged concerning the death of a teenage girl named Tiffany Valiante, who was discovered on railroad tracks. Tiffany was found dead in her apartment in 2015, and authorities declared her death a suicide. Nevertheless, her family believes she was killed and maintains that Tiffany was a cheerful, ambitious young woman.
The case received new attention in October when the Netflix series Unsolved Mysteries debuted. In the premiere, we learn more about the circumstances surrounding Tiffany’s death on July 12, 2015.
Tiffany and her parents attended a graduation party in Mays Landing, New Jersey, on that particular day. At about 9 o’clock, things took a turn when Tiffany’s pal called the teen’s parents to report that Tiffany had used their debit card.
Steven and Dianne Valiante, Tiffany’s parents, departed the party to have dinner with their acquaintance and her mother. The deceased adolescent also visited her house to discuss the situation. Throughout the brief talk (less than 10 minutes), Tiffany denied any wrongdoing.
But, Tiffany’s parents had caught her a few months previously for stealing from their bank account, as revealed by The Daily Beast. Once the friend left, Dianne and her daughter proceeded to Tiffany’s car in search of the debit card. Tiffany’s mother, Dianne, witnessed her tuck the card into her daughter’s back pocket.
When Dianne and her husband returned from their trip inside, Tiffany was no longer there. After a few of hours, her parents started phoning her phone to see if she was okay. Unfortunately, her parents didn’t find her phone until after 11 that night, when they uncovered it near the bottom of the driveway.
After 27 minutes of deliberation, they decided to notify the police at 11.30 p.m., but by then it was too late; Tiffany had already been murdered by an oncoming transit train four miles from her home.
A day after Tiffany’s death, authorities ruled it a suicide, which was a shock to the girl’s parents.
To Unsolved Mysteries, they revealed: “I broke down in tears. I had no idea where they got that idea from”.
“Depression was not an issue with my daughter. She did not have suicidal thoughts. Happiness had spread over Tiffany’s face”.
“She was making plans to go to college, she was making plans with her roommate, she was making plans to play softball that Wednesday”.
“She had plans to go to Great Adventure the next morning with friends.”

What Happened with Tiffany?
In her family’s minds, Tiffany didn’t take her own life. Tiffany’s parents last saw her wearing a full outfit, but when her body was discovered, she was just wearing her panties and no shoes.
After two weeks, Dianne discovered her daughter’s missing underwear and headband in a neat bunch over a mile from the train tracks where she died. According to NJ.com, an axe with “red markings” was discovered close to where Tiffany was killed, but it has since disappeared.
Not only was one piece of evidence mismanaged, but so were others. Evidence investigation revealed that the shirt Tiffany was wearing had become “covered with mold” as a result of being stored in a plastic bag that had been knotted in a knot.
The outlet also said that Tiffany’s “blood card,” which included her DNA, was messed up to the point where experts couldn’t be sure whether it was indeed hers and had to test Tiffany’s parents.
The employment of police dogs was one piece of evidence that was left out of the documentary. The dog led his handler to the general vicinity of Tiffany’s death four days after her death.
