After it reopened this past summer the case of Gal Beck, a 16-year-old who was killed in a traffic accident in 2005, head State Attorney Shai Nitzan on Thursday closed the case again against the driver who hit him after what he called “extensive additional efforts.”

The case had been reopened following a Channel 1 News investigative report which implied the case was originally closed while covering up crucial evidence against the driver, but even as Nitzan found aspects of the new evidence credible, he said that each piece had issues which sufficiently clouded the overall picture and blocked off a criminal indictment.
