What mysteries will be covered in Volume 3?

In an interview with io9 Unsolved Mysteries co-creator Dunn Meurer explained the format for the upcoming season. Meurer said: “I don’t know what the number of people in each camp is, but it seems like after all the years that Unsolved has been around, (our audience) expects some of the paranormal and the supernatural cases.”

He added: “It was a deliberate choice to put one of those cases in each of the three batches (of episodes). The other choice we made was to put an unexplained death case in each of the three batches, because those are the water cooler cases, for lack of a better term, where you’re really like, “Okay, what really did happen here?” Where you just go where you go back and forth. And then, we want always to have a solvable case.”

Whilst PhillyVoice reported one of the mysteries featured in the new season will be the case of 18-year-old Tiffany Valiante. The South Jersey teenager died in 2015 after being struck and killed by a New Jersey Transit train travelling between Atlantic City and Philadelphia.

Her death was ruled a suicide by the New Jersey state Medical Examiner’s Office, but her family believe she was a victim of foul play and that the investigation by NJ Transit Police had been bungled. In the trailer for Unsolved Mysteries Volume 3, Valiante’s photo is shown, as well as a video of her mother saying, “I wanna know what happened to my daughter.”

A former investigator for the Atlantic County Medical Examiner, Louise Houseman has disputed the claim that Valiante committed suicide. Houseman said: “It is highly unlikely this very accomplished, 18-year-old female athlete walked barefoot, alone in the woods, without her cellphone, over stones and brush, in the dark, along 1.5 miles of isolated railroad tracks, on a hot summer night, for a total of nearly 4 miles in order to commit suicide.”
