A case in which a Longview woman was hit and killed by a car in December 2013, has been no-billed, according to the Gregg County District Attorney's Office.

Tabitha Rodriguez was struck and killed by a vehicle on December 21 , 2013, on South Green Street in Longview.

The Longview Police Department investigated the circumstances surrounding the victim's death, including the initial and follow-up investigations and interviews.

In January of this year, an individual who believed they might have been involved in Rodriguez's death contacted the Longview Police Department and provided information.

After investigating the circumstances, police delivered their findings to the Gregg County District Attorney's Office for presentation to a grand jury to determine if sufficient probable cause existed to bring any charges.

The case was presented to a grand jury earlier in June, but due to lack of evidence or probable cause, the grand jury returnined a "no-bill."

I don't understand why someone who confesses to a crime isn't arrested.

So if you commit a crime and confess to it, thats not evidence?
