Alec Baldwin claims that everyone on the set of “Rust” knows exactly “what happened” before Halina Hutchins’ death.
The cinematographer was accidentally shot dead on set in Santa Fe, New Mexico in October 2021. Baldwin has denied pulling the trigger on the gun that killed Hutchins, suggesting that multiple people know the circumstances behind the tragic incident.
During an appearance on The Chris Cuomo Project podcast, Baldwin said, “I know everyone on the set of the movie knows what happened.
An FBI investigation recently concluded that the trigger was pulled prior to the cinematographer’s death.
However, the Hollywood actor claims that only those who were on set really know what happened.
“There were no people on the set of the movie who would talk out loud about what happened or speculate about what happened.
“They dined out on this one, and what they have in common is nobody was there. Everyone who was there knew exactly what happened.”
The FBI believes the trigger must have been pulled on set. The firearm was supposed to have been loaded with dummy bullets, and Baldwin has previously denied pulling the trigger.
Investigators tested the gun in a variety of ways to see if the weapon could be fired without using the trigger. But in the end I came to the conclusion that it is not possible.
Baldwin spoke about the incident in a television interview last year.
“The trigger wasn’t pulled. I wasn’t pulling the trigger. I never pointed a gun at anyone or pulled the trigger,” he said at the time.
