In October, a horrific tragedy occurred in New Mexico on the set of "Rust" – cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died after a gun that actor Alec Baldwin was holding discharged and a live projectile fatally hit the rising star.

With an investigation still underway, lawsuits mounting and questions unanswered, Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies is speaking out.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, which describes the tragic incident as "an event cascade" with "each incident contributing to the moment that claimed [Hutchins's] life," Carmack-Altwies "already sees that Hutchins's death was caused not by a single action but by numerous failures and mistakes."

Here's a look at those factors, according to Vanity Fair, which notes that the former public defender has yet to file charges "and won't know for several more months if she will."'

Veteran prop master Neal W. Zoromski detailed why he turned down the opportunity to work on the movie "Rust" when he found "warning signs" ahead of filming. Among the alleged reasons, according to Vanity Fair: "the production lowballed him," "they were rushing things," and there were two prop assistants but no separate armorer, which Zoromski described as the "dealbreaker."

"This was the dealbreaker, when they wanted to compress the responsibilities of these two positions," he said.

The armorer job ultimately went to Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who has since echoed Zoromski's claims, alleging she held a second role as the prop master's assistant.

In her Vanity Fair interview, Carmack-Altwies told the publication that regarding claims of sabotage – and that some scorned members of the crew had allegedly been swapping real bullets into the prop weapons for leisurely target practice in their downtime – she stated that she has "not heard anything yet that that actually occurred."
