Forces from the ministry of the interior have suggested this evening that actually the gunmen didn't realise that they had a hostage in the print works building in Dammartin.
It has been suggested the 27-year-old who was thought to have been being held hostage by gunmen was actually hiding and that he'd got into some sort of cupboard or cardboard box and as a result of that he was able to feed information back to the police officers about the two men who were in the building - absolutely crucial as they made their preparations to storm it.
The are reports there may have been a man hiding inside the Dammartin print works when terrorist brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi took it hostage.
At first it was thought the 27-year-old was a hostage but it now believed he was hiding and feeding information to police by phone during the eight-hour siege.
In that way they were able to build up a picture of exactly what weaponry the men had and also, what they were doing with their time.
If that is the case, it will have been absolutely crucial to the police's decision making when they thought it was the appropriate moment to storm it.
ITV News Senior Correspondent Emma Murphy reports from Dammartin.
There is very great relief here tonight that the two men who terrorised this nation are no more and that they are not holed up in that building in Dammartin.
We've started to get information about what may have gone on in that office building during the course of the day. It was around eight hours that they were in there.
There was a thought, that still remains, that a 27-year-old man in the building at the time was a hostage but we are getting reports now that that may not have been the case.
He may actually have been able to hide and as a result of that he was feeding information to the police, presumably by phone, and in that way they were able to build up a picture of exactly what weaponry the men had and also what they were doing with their time.
If that is the case it will have been crucial to the police's decision making when they though it was the appropriate moment to go into that office.
