French prosecutors have formally opened an investigation into the armed robbery in Paris of Kim Kardashian in which the reality TV star lost millions in jewelry. No suspect has been arrested, but investigators are examining DNA traces found in the luxury apartment, where five gunmen robbed Kardashian of jewelry worth some $10 million, sources close to the investigation said. The robbers are believed to have fled the scene by bicycle. Kardashian, who had been attending Paris Fashion Week, was briefly questioned by police before flying back to New York. She has kept a low profile since the robbery.
