D.A. in Halyna Hutchins Death on Alec Baldwin Movie, “Rust,” Makes 1st Anniversary Statement


Alec Baldwin settled his civil case with the family of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. But Hutchins’ death is still under investigation one year later. No decision has been made by the District Attorney about criminal liability in the case.

This morning the D.A.’s made a statement on the 1st anniversary of the tragedy. Heather Brewer, spokesperson, Office of the First Judicial District Attorney, State of New Mexico, sent this out a short time ago:

“On the anniversary of the tragedy on the Rust film set in Santa Fe County, District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altweis remains committed to pursuing justice for the victims, and getting answers for the community. As soon as the District Attorney receives the full report from the Santa Fe County Sheriff, she and her team of professional attorneys and investigators will thoroughly review all the evidence and make a thoughtful decision about whether to bring charges against those involved. No one is above the law and every victim deserves justice.”
