The group of potential suspects in the infamous alleged Kim Kardashian Paris robbery case has now seemed to decrease by one.
After news hit that there were 17 people arrested in connection to the heist, TMZ and other French outlets reported that Kim’s 27-year-old limo driver was recently released from police custody this past Tuesday morning without any criminal charges being brought against him.
The individual, identified by TMZ as Michael Madar, was one of 17 people E! News confirmed found themselves arrested in connection to the questionable incident.
However, the private luxury limousine company told TMZ that their employee was only brought in for “testimony purposes,” and had absolutely nothing to do with the alleged heist.
According to Le Monde, a French magazine, authorities have already arrested 14 men and 3 women with an average age of 55-years-old.
The oldest suspect and possible ring leader in the case, identified as “Pierre B.” is said to be 72 years of age.
Reports also stated that there was DNA found at the scene on the hose clamp that matched the police records of someone who’d been locked up previously for armed robbery, and this ended up being the lead for authorities.
Police then spent days watching images around the hotel that were taken through surveillance before the robbery.
News hit back in October of 2015 that multiple masked men had entered into her Parisian hotel room and bound, gagged and held her at gunpoint. The wife of Kanye West was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” and reports say that she was robbed of $11 million worth of jewelry.
In the last three months that followed, Kardashian was sure to stay away from social media and out of the spotlight, along with Kanye West, who’d had a mental breakdown over the holidays.
Many are giving the Kardashian-West family the side-eye with all of this news, but being that suspects were arrested, do you think Kardashian might have been telling the truth?
