The family of a teen who was hit and killed by a NJ Transit train in 2015 has filed a new civil lawsuit in an attempt to reopen the investigation into her death.

Tiffany Valiante, 18, of Hamilton Township, New Jersey, died after having been hit by a NJ Transit train traveling 80mph on July 12, 2015. After an investigation, her death was ruled a suicide — stating that she purposely stepped in front of the oncoming train.

Besides kidnap and murder, the lawsuit alleges destruction of evidence.

Valiantes - Parents - State - Complaint - New

Family - Fact - Bloodhound - Results - Investigators

Her family also questioned about the fact that, based on bloodhound results, investigators said that Valiante took a four-mile circular route prior to stepping in front of the oncoming train.

The Valiante's attorney, Paul D'Amato told the Press of Atlantic City that the reason for the...
