Baldwin, after the soldier's death, had searched Instagram for his family members, to whom he had sent 5 thousand dollars to be delivered to the marine's widow, Jiennah Crayton.

At the beginning of 2022, after finding some photos taken by herself during the demonstrations on January 6, 2021 on Roice's social profile, Baldwin would have written to her privately to find out if she was the woman he had sent money to.

She would have told him that protesting is perfectly legal. However, the actor would not have liked the answer, who would later share the image on his Instagram profile. From there, the hatred of the actor's fans would be unleashed against the girl and the widow of the marine.

Meanwhile, regarding the investigation into the death of Rust's director of photography Halyna Hutchins, Aaron Dyer, Baldwin's attorney, said, “Alec did nothing wrong. Clearly he was told the gun was unloaded.

The real question is: how did a loaded gun arrive on set?"
