    A Tarrant County grand jury declined to indict a man arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 25-year-old woman six years ago.

    Kristen Charbonneau was last seen in 2005 at Baby Dolls strip club in Fort Worth, where she worked as a dancer. According to police, Charbonneau had called a cab to take her home, but when the taxi arrived she was nowhere to be found, officials said.

    Daniel Glen Moore, 41, who has long been implicated in the woman's disappearance, was arrested and charged with her murder last year after telling a friend he had accidentally killed Charbonneau, according to a report in the Star-Telegram.

    The investigation into Moore continued throughout the year until the evidence was presented to a Tarrant County grand jury.  For whatever reason, the grand jury chose to not take action.  Euless police Capt. Gary Landers told the Star-Telegram that was because investigators were unable to corroborate the story Moore is believed to have told his friend regarding the woman's death.

    The investigation into Charbonneau's disappearance and death remains open and Moore remains a suspect, police said. 

    If new evidence is discovered, the case can be taken back to the Tarrant County grand jury.

    Charbonneau's body was never found, but she is presumed dead.
