Most recently Bruce Robertson, founder of Tristar Investigations commented on Kim Kardashian’s robbery in Paris at gun point exclusively for Hollywoodlife.com. Bruce commented: “In this case it does not seem unusual that she was left alive (during the robbery),” Bruce Robertson, the founder of Tristar Investigations and a 30-year veteran private investigator and security industry expert consultant, told HollywoodLife.com. “Escalating the crime of robbery to a high profile celebrity murder makes no sense. Instances when witnesses are killed would more often be associated with cases where the original crime was murder.”
