I’ve made no conclusions one way or another about what could possibly have happened on the set of ‘Rust’ the day photographer Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed.
It was pretty clear that Alec Baldwin fired the deadly shot, but surely not intentionally? How could he have known there was a live round in there?
The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office believes there are key conversations on Baldwin’s phone related to what led to the prop gun death.
The actor and the film’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, emailed back and forth about the type of gun to use in the scene, and “he said he requested a bigger gun,” according to the search warrant affidavit. He chose a “period” Colt with a brown handle.
Recently Baldwin told ABC News’ he “didn’t pull the trigger.” He also claimed that someone else, not him, put the live round in the gun.
Whats that mean? Who did?
There’s still so much to suss out here so we’ll be following.
