The prosecutor leading the investigation into the fatal “Rust” shooting seems certain of one thing, but says the biggest mystery remains unsolved: how the live ammunition ended up on the set.
Santa Fe County District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies spoke to ‘GMA’ on Wednesday to respond to the ongoing investigation into how Halyna Hutchins ended up getting shot and had to admit that she still doesn’t have much clarity on live ammunition.
However, she admitted that there were several live ammunition – beyond the one that killed Halyna – found on the set… just one of the “rust” conditions she found alarming.
One thing she seemed ready to dispel was the idea that sabotage might have been involved – a the theory floated by the chief gunsmith, Hannah gutierrez-reed‘s own legal team just over a week ago.
Find out how the DA reacts … while she says there is so far no evidence to suggest that something like this has happened, Carmack-Atlwies does not completely rule out this possibility – she is not watching neither the other side on what potential sabotage could mean criminally.
Indeed, if the evidence supported any deliberate intention behind bringing bullets onto the board and / or mixing them into the box of dummy bullets that Gutierrez-Reed dived into to charge Alec baldwin‘s gun … DA says a higher murder charge may be on the table.
As she noted the last time she held a press conference … no one is off the table at this point as much as possible of the charges, and she reaffirms here.
One thing Carmack-Atlwies is making clear is that a failure occurred that penetrated several layers of what should have been impenetrable safety nets … and unfortunately it ended up costing money. Halyna her life.
Our sincere thanks to
