As we previously reported, approximately 17 arrests have been made in connection to the high-profile case, and a French judge may even travel to get the mom-of-three’s testimony.
According to DailyMail, a source close to the investigation says some of the suspects are “beginning to admit their involvement,” and as of Tuesday night, only 10 suspects remained in custody.
The KUWTK star’s limo driver Michael Madar has since been released, but his brother Gary is still being held in connection to leaking details of her whereabouts.
And supposedly half of the ten are thought to have physically taken part in the break-in of Kim’s Paris hotel room in October!
CCTV footage, mobile phone triangulation, and even DNA on the plastic ties and masking tape used to restrain the reality TV starlet have linked them to the robbery! The insider explained:
“The CCTV is of very poor quality, but body shapes can still be matched up. The telephone evidence is strong, as is the DNA. When faced with this kind of evidence it is very hard for suspects to say they were not present.”
These five main suspects (ranging in age from 54 to 72) are believed to include two who are thought to have traveled to Antwerp, Belgium, which is known as the diamond capitol of Europe. Additionally, telephones belonging to suspected thief Old Omar and his associate Marceau have even been tracked to the city.
French publication LCI also adds another known suspect Didier Dubreucq AKA “Blue Eyes” is a convicted drug runner, but there’s yet to be word on what his involvement may have been.
French police can keep all ten people in custody until Friday morning, but they’ll then have to charge the suspects or release them.
