Anatoly Androsovych, the father of the cinematographer who was fatally shot by Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust,” commented about the investigation.
In the midst of the investigation into the murder of Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film “Rust” in October, Anatoly Androsovych, the cinematographer’s father, made harsh statements to The Sun newspaper, blaming actor Alec Baldwin directly for the death.
Ukrainian Anatoly, who served as a submarine captain, said: “I can’t understand the behaviour of Alec.
“Why did he sweep out his tweets when it became clear the shooting was on rehearsal?
“And why did he fire the shot during the preparations? The revolver is the type of gun which doesn’t shoot before the trigger is pressed and Alec is partially guilty for causing that shot.
“It is clear to me Baldwin fired the shot from his hand so it’s hard for me to understand how he cannot be held partly responsible for my daughter’s death.”
Anatoly expressed doubt that his nine-year-old grandson Andros, whom Halyna had with her American lawyer spouse Matthew, would “ever fully recover.”
He added: “Andros is slowly getting back to life, but this is huge blow for all of us.”
Baldwin said in an interview that he cocked the pistol and released the hammer, causing the shot, but he did not pull the trigger.
