Investigators will now retrieve any relevant evidence for the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office and hopefully find information about the production that will piece together what happened in the days leading up to when Baldwin accidentally shot and killed the director of photography. However, the sheriff’s office noted that the detectives “does not yet have physical possession of the data to be retrieved off the Baldwin phone,” and that it is “in progress.”

His civil attorney Aaron Dyer also confirmed the news in a statement to the outlet – but claimed it doesn’t matter since there were “no answers on his phone” in the first place. He said:
