‘Rust’ Investigators Just Need Alec Baldwin’s Phone Records To Finish

An investigation into cinematographer Halyna Hutchins’ death on the New Mexico set of the Alec Baldwin-produced movie “Rust” is reportedly almost finished.

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office investigators now hope to get phone records from Baldwin — whose prop gun fired a live round that killed Hutchins in October 2021 — after receiving FBI forensics reports on Wednesday, Deadline reported.

The forensics reports are headed to the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator for further review, the sheriff’s office said.

Once the reviews are complete, the sheriff’s office will send its file to the Santa Fe District Attorney’s Office for “final charging decisions,” Deadline reported.

Officials with New York’s Suffolk County Police Department, which received Baldwin’s phone records after the actor turned them over months ago, and Baldwin’s lawyer are reportedly helping Santa Fe officials get access to the records. The sheriff’s office said the phone records are “forthcoming.”

Baldwin claimed that he never pulled the gun’s trigger and was informed there wasn’t a live round inside the firearm. Even if that was the case, the actor and others on the “Rust” set violated basic firearms safety rules.
