(Scroll down for video) A family’s pet parrot may be the key witness to a murder scene.
The African grey parrot lived in the home with Martin and Glenna Duram in Michigan.
Martin’s mother said that the parrot is known for its foul language. Its latest words are “don’t f*****g shoot.”
This came after 45-year-old Martin was shot and killed in his home on 128th Street in Ensley Township. The husband died of multiple gunshot wounds.
The wife, who was shot once in the head, was taken to the hospital, where she was treated and released.
Police initially believed that it was case of a double-homicide. However, family members recorded a video of the couple’s parrot mimicking the couple’s argument.
The parrot changed voices mimicking the husband and wife, before saying, in a male voice “don’t f*****g shoot.”
Authorities are now investigating the case as a murder with Glenna as the suspect. Police said they found three suicide notes written by Glenna.
The family reportedly had financial troubles. Glenna denied killing her husband when detectives interviewed her after she recovered.
