After three long months, Kim Kardashian West might finally get justice for her horrific Paris robbery.
In October, thieves held the reality star at gunpoint in her Paris hotel and snagged more than $10 million worth of her jewelry. This morning, French police arrested 17 people in connection with the heist.
The suspects — ages 23 to 72 — were already known for prior robberies and other crimes, according to one official. Prosecutors declined to say whether the five people that took part in the actual robbery were among those taken into custody, but police can hold the suspects for up to 96 hours before they formally charge them.
However, to move forward with the case, Kim will have to relive the horrific nightmare — frame by frame.
The video is being sent to the US, where Kim will have to watch it with American officers who are working with French authorities.
The robbery traumatized Kim, who kept a low profile following the terrifying event. She only recently returned to social media at the beginning of January after a three-month hiatus.
DNA left behind on a piece of tape used to gag and bound the reality star allowed police to track down a well-known criminal who they believe is involved in Kim's case.
A senior Paris police source confirmed that the DNA corresponded to a famous criminal who had been involved in numerous armed robberies. The suspect has not been named by authorities yet — but, like all the others in custody, he will be held for up to 96 hours before being charged or released.
Hopefully Kim finally gets the justice she deserves.
"They're going to shoot me in the back," Kim tearfully recalled in a new promo clip for "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" released last week. "There's no way out."
