Nearly 10 months after Alec Balwin killed Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico set of the low budget Western, the police investigation into what happened is still ongoing, but a bit closer to competition.
Santa Fe Country Sheriff’s Investigators have informed that they’ve received the FBI’s completed forensic reports on Aug. 2, which were then sent to New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator for review. “The OMI had advised the Sheriff’s Office that they required these forensic reports to finalize their investigation,” read a release from the Sheriff’s Office which received the reports yesterday.
Meanwhile, the Santa Fe County Sheriffs are still working with the Suffolk County Police Department and First Judicial District Attorney’s Office to get, process and disclose The Cooler Oscar nominee’s phone records.
Once Sheriff’s reviews the OMI files, Baldwin’s phone records, they’ll send the final Rust case file to the Santa Fe District Attorney’s office for final charging decisions.
The Santa Fe District Attorney’s didn’t respond for a request for comment on the state of the probe.
