Suspects Being Held In Connection With Kim Kardashian Robbery Beginning To Admit Involvement
According to new reports, some of the 17 suspects arrested in connection with Kim Kardashian's armed robbery are beginning to admit their role sin the robbery.
Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France during Paris Fashion Week. Five masked men broke into her hotel room and tied her up, taped her mouth shut and bound her arms and legs. They also held a gun to her head, threatening her if she didn't give them her possessions. They made off with over $10 million worth of jewelry and other possessions.
After 17 people were arrested this week, Paris officials have been reportedly cracking down on the suspects, trying to get them to admit their involvement. Michael Madar, long time limousine driver to Kim Kardashian was arrested, but later released after he was cleared. But his brother, Gary Madar, 27, remains in custody after police believe he is the one who leaked key information to the robbers.
10 people still remain in custody. The five suspects that robbed Kim Kardashian are reportedly from the ages of 54-years-old to 74-years-old. According to the police, some of those involved are among "France's most notorious villains." As well, two suspects in the robbery travelled to Antwerp, the diamond capital of Europe, to sell the jewelry that they had robbed from Kim.
Officials say that those still held in custody are beginning to admit, in detail, their involvement with the robbery in hopes to decrease their sentences if and when they are charged.
While some of the men involved are notorious thieves in France and their involvement is coming to light, people are wondering about the trial and what will happen when they are going to be charged. According to officials, the judge put on the case is willing to travel to The United States to see Kim and get statements from her about the incident. Which, of course, makes Kim's life much easier.
I'm sure flying to France would be traumatic within itself, since she has not been back since the robbery. We're hoping with officials getting closer to catching those involved, she will finally be at peace.
