New Evidence Unveiled: Alec Baldwin’s Potential Manslaughter Charges

Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin may soon face manslaughter charges following the surfacing of new evidence in the ‘Rust’ shooting incident that occurred on a movie set in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in October 2021.

In this tragic incident, 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins lost her life, while 48-year-old Joel Souza was injured.

Baldwin was initially charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, but these charges were dropped in New Mexico earlier this year. However, recent findings indicate that the case is not yet closed.

A comprehensive examination of the fired cartridge case and the operationally restored evidence revolver has provided new insights into the incident. According to firearms expert Lucien Haag, the fatal shooting occurred when the hammer was manually retracted to its fully rearward and cocked position, followed by the pull or rearward depression of the trigger. Despite Baldwin’s denials, Haag’s report suggests otherwise.

Based on Haag’s analysis, which included graphics and photography, it was concluded that the gun used by Baldwin had not been modified. These findings have prompted a renewed call for a second analysis of the weapon. The implications of these findings are significant and support the theory that Baldwin pulled the trigger, resulting in the fatal shooting.

Prosecutors are now considering refiling charges against Baldwin. Special prosecutor Morrisey stated on August 16, after the submission of Haag’s report, that charges against Baldwin are being considered. However, a final decision has not yet been made, and they won’t be pressured by anyone in this regard.

The handling of the Rust probe by local police and Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies has faced criticism. Whether the special prosecutors will move forward with refiling charges against Baldwin remains uncertain, despite his history of facing numerous lawsuits.

If Baldwin is charged with manslaughter, it could have significant implications. As we await further developments, it is evident that the tragic ‘Rust’ shooting incident continues to cast a shadow over Baldwin’s career.
