Fatal shot investigation

Baldwin wants to hand over his cell phone

First, in the case of the fatal film shoot, the investigators complain that they have not yet received Alec Baldwin’s cell phone. A short time later, the actor wants to comply with the authority’s request.

After much hesitation, Hollywood star Alec Baldwin wants to hand over his smartphone to investigators in the event of the fatal film shoot. The actor will leave his cell phone to the authorities “this week,” said attorney Aaron Dyer, according to the New York Times. He and his client reached an agreement with the Santa Fe County authorities last weekend. Shortly beforehand, the agency in the US state of New Mexico had announced that it had issued a search warrant from a court in mid-December demanding that the phone be surrendered, but the cell phone had not yet been handed over to the authorities.

Baldwin’s lawyers had received the request, but even after the public prosecutor’s office had been called in, the phone had not been handed over to this day, it said. For the police investigation, among other things, text messages, emails, social media accounts and photos on the device should be examined.

Baldwin’s attorney rejected reports that his mandate would not cooperate with the authorities. “Since that tragic incident, Mr. Baldwin has continued to cooperate with the authorities, and any claim to the contrary is simply untrue,” the statement said in a statement the newspaper quoted. Baldwin had already rejected media reports in a video message on Instagram last week that he would not fully support the investigation. Regarding the requested phone, the actor spoke of nonsense and lies in newspaper reports. This process would take time. Authorities could not just look at photos or love letters to his wife on the phone, Baldwin said in the video clip. But you have to find out the truth about the death of the camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, the actor emphasized.

Hutchins was fatally injured while filming the western “Rust” at a film ranch in Santa Fe on October 21. Leading actor Baldwin had used the gun for a scene during the rehearsal. The ongoing investigation revealed that the Colt contained real ammunition. The police are currently investigating how this could happen.
