SAND LAKE, Mich. — A Sand Lake couple’s pet parrot could be used as evidence to prove Glenna Duram murdered her husband Martin.
14 months after Martin Duram was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds in his Sand Lake home, Glenna Duram, 48, is in jail and accused of his murder.
His is family thinks the couple quarreled over unpaid bills, foreclosure on their home and her gambling debts.
They believe she killed him and tried but failed to kill herself.
A few weeks after his death last May, the couple’s parrot started repeating a loud, profane argument between a male and a female:
The man told her to, “Get out.”
“Where will I go,” she replied.
Then, in what family believes are his last words, "Don’t f----ing shoot.”
The Case Of Echo The Parrot, The Pet Of A New Orleans Crime Boss
Back in the mid-1990s, a parrot named Echo was one of the first animals to enter the witness protection program. Because the witness protection program still doesn’t include a branch for animals, the bird was sent to a wildlife rehab given explicit instructions to keep hush. Owned by the former New Orleans crime boss Anthony Corolla, Echo witnessed vile instances of child abuse (the jury is still out on whether Echo witnessed a murder) and reached a point of trauma where she would rock and repeat vile things her mob owner said.
The Case Of Scooby The Dog, Who Served As A Murder Witness
Making history as the first dog to testify in court in France, a dog appropriately nicknamed Scooby served as a witness for a murder trial in 2008. The dog’s 59-year-old owner’s dead body was discovered hanging from the ceiling of her apartment. Originally assumed to be a suicide case, investigators brought Scooby onto the witness stand to see if any suspects would elicit excessive barking. Sure enough, it worked.

I'm sure the defense could argue the parrot just heard those words from a television show.
