Police may have their first decent lead in the armed robbery of Kim Kardashian West after a passerby found one of her pendants, the Telegraph reports. The diamond cross—believed to be worth more than $32,000—was stolen as part of an $11 million heist of Kim K's valuables last Monday at a luxury hotel in Paris. Authorities have reportedly found "several" DNA profiles on the piece of jewelry, which was found the following day near the scene of the crime. According to NBC News, investigators hope to use DNA from the pendant to find the men responsible for the robbery. Sources have described the crime, during which Kardashian West was tied up and feared rape, as six minutes of terror. (More Kim Kardashian stories.)
