A French news outlet has published photos of the hotel room where Kim Kardashian West was robbed in October.
According to People magazine, French news station TFI released images from Paris’ No Address Hotel, where suspects took millions of dollars worth of jewelry—including a $4 million ring—belonging to West, 36.
The images show the bedroom and bathroom, along with plastic ties, duct tape, and gag used to hold and silence the star during the harrowing ordeal. The channel also released surveillance footage of the assailants meeting at a cafe several times after the incident, according to TMZ.

Authorities have identified 17 persons of interest but have charged only a handful.
Officials were able to recover DNA from a $28,000 diamond necklace dropped during the robbery. The sample matched an infamous robber, allowing cops to identify his accomplices through a surveillance operation, according to Cosmopolitan.
In January, Paris police made a series of early morning busts related to the incident. A police spokesperson told The New York Times that some of the suspects were “thieves with long criminal records” in their 60s and 70s.
“The oldest of those arrested was 72 and that several of the others were in their 40s, 50s and 60s, which suggested that they were part of an ‘experienced’ group,” the spokesperson said.
Billboard magazine reported that the alleged robbers used code names and words to describe the October 16 crime.
As Crime Online previously reported, West was bound, gagged, and robbed at gunpoint while in Paris for Fashion Week. West told police the two suspects wore ski masks and took several items before tying her up in a bathtub.
