A suspect who is believed to be involved in a December 2013 hit and run which killed a woman in Longview has turned himself into police.
The suspect in the accident that killed Tabitha Lynn Herriage Rodriguez , 33, contacted police Thursday afternoon.
Police are in the process of finishing up the investigation and sending the case to the District Attorney's Office for consideration. The suspect was not arrested when he contacted police because there was not a warrant issued for him at the time.
