Parrot Was Key 'Witness' in Murder Trial


Apparently, the bird repeatedly said the couple’s last conversation before the man died.

A woman has been convicted of her husband’s murder after the last conversation she had with her husband was repeatedly said by their pet parrot who witnessed the murder.



The 49-year-old Glenna Duram shot her 46-year-old husband named Martin Duram, five times before she turned the gun on herself in a failed suicide attempt.



Glenna Duram was found guilty of a first-degree murder after the 8-hour deliberation conducted by the Newaygo Country jury in Michigan.

Apparently, her husband’s African Grey parrot named Bud, have repeated the couple’s final conversation to Mr. Duram’s ex-wife, Christina Keller.



Keller immediately brought the parrot in after the attack in May 2015 and said: “I believe with all my heart that those are the last words of Marty.”

“I recognize two different voices screaming and yelling and it always ends with ‘don’t f*****g shoot’.”



Normally, pets are never used in court proceedings but at this time, the prosecutor considered what the parrot had said.

The victim’s mother named Lillian Duram reportedly said: “That bird picks up everything and anything, and it’s got the filthiest mouth around.”



On August 28, Ms. Duram was sentenced on a murder and a firearm charge.




African Grey parrots are known for their ability to mimic a human voice.




It was in 1993 when a parrot was first considered for use as an evidence in a murder trial.
