Bizarre! Parrot becomes eyewitness to murder in United States
Washington: Peculiarly, it is believed that a ‘parrot’ can provide crucial evidence in a murder case in the United States (US).
48-year-old Glenna Duram is accused of killing her husband who was found shot five times at their home in Sandlake county of Michiga while the lady herself was found lying next to Martin Duram with a wound on her head.
Furthermore, kins of Martin claim that the pet parrot of the couple named ‘Bud’ have witnessed the killing. According to the deceased’s family, the parrot was heard saying “don’t shoot” in a video, shot soon after Martin’s demise.
“It is a very interesting case and has been a great opportunity for me to learn about the special bird, African parrot. We are going to test whether the information provided by the parrot can be used to prosecute the case,” said Newago County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Springstead.
- Martin’s family said the parrot started chanting an argument between two persons, likely to be a husband and a wife.
- The parrot was heard repeating the following remarks: 1) Get out! 2) Where will I go? 3) Don’t shoot!!
- The bird can pick up anything it hears and its mouth is too filthy to keep shut,” said victim’s mother Lillian Duram.
- The accused has maintained her innocence and said, “My heart and the God know that I did not kill my husband.”
