As already established at the first investigations, they had an internal help, a "mole" who opened the case with a pair of earrings and a brooch in diamonds, gold and platinum, allowing the criminals to escape undisturbed from the loot long before they would to alarm.
The escape in the hall full of visitors – A chronometric precision that has always been the finger of the researchers against someone "inside" the exhibition, since the alarm system of the organizers of the exhibition was considered and developed by the collector himself as advanced. After collecting the dear, the writers of the theft managed to escape from the hall already full of tourists. This would be an action commissioned, even if the jewels, just because they are famous, are considered difficult to be placed on the illegal market, even if they are reduced to simple gems.
