Family remembers woman killed in domestic dispute

HEPHZIBAH, GA (WFXG) -

Sending messages of love to the sky, this family honors a woman whose life was cut short. Tiffany Salter, 22, was killed one year ago, but her father said he feels just as much pain as he did the day he lost his daughter.

"It being the one year anniversary brought it all back," said John Salter, Tiffany's father. "This morning was very emotional, but with all the friends and family I've got surrounding me now, they've made this day a lot easier."

Last July, deputies said Todd Goff, 25, had an altercation with Salter at their Hephzibah home. Investigators said Goff choked Salter until she wasn't breathing. A judge granted Goff a $50,000 bond. At the time, the Salter family said they felt betrayed by the justice system.

"We couldn't even fathom thinking about them letting him out," Salter said. "How do you let somebody like that back out on the streets?"

But in a recent hearing the trial judge appointed to the case revoked that bond, and Goff now sits behind bars. Thankful for the judge's ruling, today Salter's family said they're able to peacefully remember the woman they described as outgoing and loving.

"Tiffany, she was just a sweet and joyful person," said Christopher Kerlin, Tiffany's step brother. "Anybody who knows her has got plenty of happy memories.""

"She had a lot of joy and ambition," said Michael Salter, Tiffany's brother.

"She was so fun and outgoing, and would do anything. She loved being outdoors," said Hannah Crouch, Tiffany's cousin and best friend.

And those memories are now in ink, as family and friends celebrate the life of their loved one.

 

The Salter family has an account set up at the Regions Bank. A donation can be made at any branch. Proceeds will go toward Safe Homes of Augusta, a shelter helping victims of domestic violence.
