She murders her husband but then gets reported… by her parrot (VIDEO)
This story, first reported by Associated Press, initially left Michigan police scratching their heads. It all began in May 2015 when Glenna Duram and Martin Duram, a couple who had been married for eleven years, were found slumped on their bedroom floor. The 46-year-old man had been shot five times, whilst Glenna escaped with a only headwound. Everything pointed towards a clear-cut case of the couple being victims of a violent attack…
"Don't ****ing shoot!"
All could've been laid to rest if a third party hadn't also been present at the time. Bud, the couple's parrot, gave testimony in his own way, repeating "Don't shoot, don't ****ing shoot!" in front of the victim's nearest and dearest. Deeply disturbed by the scene he'd been an unfortunate witness, the bird didn't stop repeating the same sentence over and over again, to the point where he was filmed by Martin's parents. Another small detail: Bud's voice is uncannily similar to their deceased son's voice. Enough to arouse suspicion.
Stunned, Glenna is still claiming to be innocent, despite the jury's verdict, given after an 8-hour deliberation. A psychologist, a specials in animal behaviour, testified as a police witness. According to her, there's no doubt: the parrot is imitating a real fight between a couple. Faced with the evidence given by Bud, she was rightly convicted.
