A parrot was used as a ‘witness’ in Michigan to convict a woman of murder! On July 19, forty-nine-year-old Glenna Duram was found guilty of first-degree murder for the death her husband. Glenna has shot her husband, Martin Druam, five times and then turned the gun on herself (an attempted murder-suicide) – but she failed to end her own life.
The police at first thought the couple were victims of a double homicide, until their pet parrot, Bud (an African gray), was heard saying “Don’t f***ing shoot.”
Lillian Duram, Martin’s mother, claimed that the bird picked up every word said in that house.
