Armie Hammer is not a suspect in a Wonder Valley death investigation, despite online claims he was working on a hotel near a site where human remains have been found.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office told The Sun that it had ‘no plans’ to investigate the Hollywood actor over the unidentified remains, which were found on January 31.
‘Armie Hammer’s name hasn’t come up as a suspect at all. We have no plans to investigate him,’ a spokesperson told the paper.
Hammer, 34, has been embroiled in controversy for weeks over accusations of sexual assault made by former partners which have seen him dropped from a number of projects.
Women began coming forward after unverified social media messages, purportedly sent by Hammer, were leaked online.
The messages included graphic descriptions of cannibalism fantasies, abuse and a BDSM fetish.
Hammer has denied the sexual abuse allegations, saying there has been a ‘vicious online attack’ against him.

The actor was dropped by his agency and publicist over the weekend, throwing the online rumor mill into overdrive amid speculation that a shocking exposé was about to be published.
Instagram account Deux Moi, which publishes unverified celebrity gossip, shared a number of submissions indicating that a shocking story about Hammer would be published soon.
House of Effie – the Instagram account which first posted the messages allegedly from Hammer – then posted: ‘Holy s**t. I know what’s going to come out. It’s bad. Really bad. Like I’m shaking and I feel like I’m gonna throw up bad and I’m w[ith] my whole family.
‘What he and his friends have done is worse than anything I have posted. Justice will be served.’

According to The Sun, social media users then began speculating that the reported upcoming story might be linked to the remains found last Sunday.
‘This is all alleged with #Armie Hammer until proven otherwise. Remember when Armie Hammer suddenly began working in construction mid-pandemic and mid-divorce last year? Suddenly, he was employed, in between jobs, working on a hotel in the middle of the desert,’ online magazine In The Cut wrote on Twitter.
‘In the six months during his employment, 10-15 minutes away from the site, the remains of the three women have been found, In The Cut claimed.
‘We are not conflating the two ideas, but there have been long-standing rumors for awhile.’

Some social media accounts have speculated that the unidentified remains could belong to Erika Lloyd, a California mom who went missing in Joshua Tree National Park in June 2020.
Hammer’s name has come up online in relation to the remains because the actor has said he had worked in construction at a Twentynine Palms property near the park over the summer.
‘I have been productive. I’ve been really fortunate. I mean look, the world’s falling apart, it’s the apocalypse, but funny enough, my buddy Ashton [Ramsey] bought an old motel out in the desert.
‘It was this kind of abandoned, rundown motel, and I came back from the Cayman Islands where I was during quarantine and I was like, ‘Dude, I have nothing to do.’ He was like, ‘Do you wanna come live with me in this abandoned motel and do construction with me?,’ Hammer told Jimmy Kimmel Live in October 2020.

He had previously mentioned the project in an Instagram post in August which was tagged at Joshua Tree National Park.
‘This one of my best friends, Ashton. For the last 2 months or so I have lived with Ashton, worked construction with Ashton, and hiked with Ashton every day. He has been such a good friend (and boss) and has been the most supportive friend anyone could ever ask for. Today might be my birthday, but I just wanna say thank you to @ashtonramsey and say I love you dude,’ Hammer wrote under a picture of his friend.
Deux Moi appeared to deny the speculated link between Hammer and the remains, saying there was ‘no way’ and that people were ‘reaching’.
Another user said in an anonymous screenshot that they did not believe the rumours, claiming Hammer had ‘girls there the whole time’ and that he would not have mentioned the project on TV ‘if he had killed two people.’
Hammer has not commented on the speculation but previously confirmed that he will no longer appear in rom-com Shotgun Wedding with Jennifer Lopez.
”I’m not responding to these bulls**t claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me. I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.
‘Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that,’ he said in a statement to the Daily Mail and other news organisations last month.

Chambers responded to the allegations against Hammer in an Instagram post last week, saying: ‘For weeks, I’ve been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated.
‘Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.
‘My sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on my work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time,’ Chambers wrote.
In a recent interview, Hammer’s ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze told The Kyle and Jackie O Show that the actor allegedly wanted to remove one of her ribs and eat it.
‘In non-sexual settings he asked me on multiple occasions to remove my ribs,’ she said. ‘He wanted to find a doctor in LA to like, remove the ribs that I don’t need. And he wanted to, like, he has a smoker at his house in L.A. and he wanted to smoke it and eat it.’
The model admitted that she took it as ‘dark humor’ at first, before he made the request ‘five times’ — to the point that she believed it was more of a ‘serious thing.’
‘He would always say, “I wonder what it tastes like, I bet it tastes good,” stuff like that,’ she claimed.
When asked if she thought the Rebecca actor would have really eaten her ribs, Lorenze responded firmly: ‘100 percent.’
The actor often tied up Lorenze, hit her with paddles and planned out ‘high protocol nights’ of painful sexual moves, which often left her covered in bruises, she said.
Another ex-girlfriend, Courtney Vucekovich, told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview that the star was into ‘master-slave fetishes’ and told her he wanted to break and eat her ribs.
The Dallas-based app founder said she met Hammer in June through mutual friends, and from the beginning he was ‘intoxicating.’
‘He’s a very charming, intense human being. But once you start talking to him, he’s pretty aggressive right from the start. Not violent, but just sexually aggressive in the way he speaks,’ she said.
