To be honest with you, I have no idea where to begin with this one.
I'm a big crime and mystery buff just like any young millennial and Gen-Z cusper seems to be in this day and age. All my friends and I love crime and horror shows. The latest season of "Unsolved Mysteries" on Netflix hit a little too close to home for me, though.
I'm always fascinated by bizarre situations and scenarios that have taken place within the Garden State. I haven't watched it yet, but I know once I finally take the time to binge Netflix's new show "The Watcher," I'll be really invested in that one, too. That's set in Westfield, NJ, after all.

I knew I had to find time to watch at least the first episode of the new season of "Unsolved Mysteries" on Netflix because I had been seeing the signs posted by the family all over the area since moving to Atlantic County. The first episode of season 3 is titled "Mystery At Mile Marker 45." In case you are unfamiliar with the facts surrounding this specific case, it's centered around an 18-year-old young lady from Mays Landing who had just recently graduated from Oakcrest High School when she was found dead on the NJ Transit train tracks in Galloway, NJ back in 2015.
The NJ Transit authorities would go on to declare Valiante's death a suicide, but the family wasn't buying it. Without giving too much away, the family and several reps and law enforcement professionals list every reason why there are still questions surrounding that ruling. After watching the episode, you'll probably be scratching your head, too.
Now, I'll be honest, I didn't live around here when this originally went down back in 2015. This part of South Jersey was a good 45+ minutes from where I was living at the time, so I didn't hear too much about it when it first happened. That fact alone shocked me. I was living in Gloucester County at the time. How come I don't remember hearing about this? You'd think everybody would have been ALL OVER this story. I do vaguely remember the mainstream media reporting that a teen that was hit by a train, but nobody reported the suspicious details surrounding what happened that night.
After watching the "Unsolved Mysteries" episode, I have more questions now than I ever thought I'd have. Ever since relocating to Atlantic County, I see the yellow signs with red lettering and Tiffany's picture on it all around Mays Landing and the surrounding towns. The mystery still haunts Atlantic County. The episode has me convinced there is WAY more to the story.
Apparently, I'm not the only one. A few days after the episode aired on Netflix, I saw a petition circulating on social media to reopen Tiffany's case. I wasted no time signing it.
In case you have yet to watch the episode, I don't want to spoil too much of it for you, but here are my questions:
Apparently, Tiffany allegedly used a friend's credit card without the friend's knowledge and there was a verbal fight that broke out the night of Tiffany's death. How come that situation wasn't further scrutinized?
In my opinion, there's no way that girl walked all those miles barefoot. From where her shoes were found, that would have meant she would have had to walk for MILES without shoes on. Makes no sense to me, but what do I know?
To this day, her family still has no idea where her shorts are that she was wearing the night she died.
I truly believe this case deserves to be reopened and handled by a department that actually knows how to handle cases like this. By the way, the scene wasn't even cleaned up like it should have been. Members of Tiffany's family allegedly found body parts of hers around the tracks where she was struck. That was apparently AFTER the law enforcement department that handled the case did their job.
None of it makes sense to me. If you're thinking the same thing, sign the petition to get the case reopened. Hopefully, with today's technology and the right people involved, justice can be served for Tiffany and her family. Even if there's more to be discovered about what was going on in Tiffany's life and her head at the time, the family at least deserves to have some peace after all these years of wondering what really happened.

Every Christmas without fail, we went up to stay with my aunt in Cumbria for a few days. She had a beautiful house and garden and nature was important to her, as it is to me. What I remember most is the scent: the whole house would be filled with the fragrance of forced hyacinths and paperwhite narcissi. She was called Fortune Stanley and she wrote a cookbook in the 1970s called English Country House Cooking.

After controlling a game against the Oregon State Beavers the Florida Gators (4-2) will look to end their PK85 experience on a high note taking on the West Virginia Mountaineers (5-1). West Virginia is in year 16 of the Bob Huggins era and his style of tough nosed, no-nonsense, defense-first basketball has become synonymous with the Mountaineer brand. Florida has had some luck against West Virginia recently taking a 4-game win streak into Sunday’s matchup with three of those games happening in the last five years with the Gators taking wins in each of them despite the fact that West Virginia was often favored. West Virginia is led offensively by Erik Stevenson who might sound familiar as he was in the SEC a year ago playing for South Carolina. Florida and West Virginia at the PK85 will take place on Sunday, November 27th at 8:30 ET and will be televised on ESPN U.12 days ago Gator Country
This week I spoke with Ian St Clair of the Mile High Report about Klint Kubiak assuming the Broncos offensive play calling duties, Denver’s weakness against the run, and their plans at running back after a big week of turnover for them. Read to get the inside scoop on this week’s Carolina Panthers vs Denver Broncos match up. The fact 16 points is considered an improvement tells you all you need to know about the offensive Broncos offense. Not to mention the offensive line. They are maintaining a top-3 ranking in numerous categories in spite of their offensive failings week after week.15 days ago Cat Scratch Reader

That's why it's notable that to tell the in-depth story of his film career, he chose an new medium: cartoons. The book, Number One is Walking, is a collaboration with The New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss. Steve Martin and Harry Bliss joined All Things Considered to share the experience of collaborating to tell the story of Martin's life through pictures. On the title, Number One is WalkingSM: Well, the original title is now the subtitle, My Life in the Movies and Other Diversions, which means there's cartoons, there's anecdotes and there's cartoons. So they changed it to, "Number one is walking, number two is walking."24 days ago North Country Public Radio
It has also become an image of what success looked like in country music. One of the main benefits of winning a CMA is industry-level recognition of your art. And in the 2022 CMA Awards night, the CMA recorded 7.57 million viewers, with an 11% gain from their all-time low 6.83 million viewership the year before. For rising country artists, this is an avenue for country music fans (and even non-fans) to get to know their music. And last but not the least, winning a CMA award opens more doors to opportunities within the genre, such as artist collaborations.24 days ago Country Thang Daily
