Baldwin’s lawyer, Aaron Dyer, said the actor voluntarily gave his phone to authorities on the morning of January 14. He did this so that the investigation into the death of Hutchins could be completed. “But it’s not about his phone, it doesn’t have answers. Alec is not to blame for anything, ”the lawyer emphasized.
Dyer also named the main question in this case, which needs to be answered. In his opinion, it is necessary to find out how live ammunition got on the set.
