New Gun Analysis Is Bad News for Baldwin
new york post It is reported that a new gun analysis report has concluded that Baldwin, 65, did in fact pull the trigger on the film set that fateful day, which he has repeatedly denied.
Released Tuesday, the report was prepared by experts in ballistics and forensic testing based in Arizona and New Mexico, who examined marks found on a Colt .45 revolver as well as a used cartridge. He concluded that the trigger must have been pulled or pressed.
Forensic experts led by Lucien Haag said, “Although Alec Baldwin denies repeatedly pulling the trigger, given the tests, findings and observations described herein, the evidence points to a fully cocked or retracted hammer of the revolver.” The trigger had to be pulled or pressed sufficiently to release it.” Science Services in Arizona wrote in the report.
“This fatality was the result of the hammer being manually pulled fully to the rear and the cocked position after the trigger was pressed to the rear at some point,” he continued.
New Mexico special prosecutor Kari Morrissey responded to the report by saying a formal announcement would be made at some point whether charges against Baldwin would be re-filed, but did not give a specific date. He added Fox News New charges against Baldwin are being “considered”, but a “final decision” has not yet been made.
