Since Kim Kardashian was tied up and robbed of jewels totaling about $11 million in value at her Paris apartment, various new details have emerged detailing the chilling crime.
According to the latest account reported by the Daily Mail, the criminals tricked their way into the reality star's residence at the No Address Hotel by saying: "It’s urgent — we must see Miss Kardashian." This detail reported by the concierge is the latest evidence given to detectives investigating the case.
But the Daily Mail's report notes that police see inconsistencies in the concierge's story, and are confused about how easily he so guided the crooks to Kim's bedroom. He has told them that the men arrived at around 2:30 a.m., and got through a first set of locked doors by simply buzzing the intercom. Inside, they posed as police, and then pointed a gun at the concierge's head, forcing him to open the door to Kim's apartment with a key. But apparently, night staff — not in positions of high authority — aren't supposed to have such easy access to these apartments.
"It is inconceivable that this concierge could have just walked into the flat with the robbers without breaking the door down, and there is no sign of forced entry," says a source close to the investigation, cited in the Daily Mail.
The reality star also reportedly gave an interview with police on Tuesday in which she explained her encounters with the concierge and key witness: She said he was handcuffed when he opened the door to the apartment for the robbers and Kim told police the concierge was there during the entire crime — and that she asked him, "Are we gonna die?"
We also know now that a security camera captured the robbers as they crept past a guard and then fled on bikes. The video is considered a "million-to-one chance" scenario — because it was captured by a security camera facing a mirror that reflected the moment of the getaway.
