A parrot is said to appear in court as a witness in the trial of a murder case in Argentina.
A woman named Elizabeth Toledo 46, was reportedly raped and killed in the city of San Fernando in December 2018.
Residents in the area found her lifeless body n@ked on a mattress on the floor in an apartment in Buenos Aires, next to her parrot.
Per a report by Clarin, recording a statement after the case was filed, last week, the police officer revealed that the parrot was heard saying “Por favour, soltame!” (“No, please, let me go”), shortly after the woman was murdered.
The police are of the conviction that the parrot was uttering the last words of the owner during the rape and abuse encounter.
Evidence also includes witness testimony from a neighbour who claimed to have seen the parrot repeat the trick on a different occasion.
That witness told police that the parrot once said ‘por qué me pegaste?’ (why did you hit me?) after one of the men hit Toledo
