A parrot may be used as a credible witness in the murder of Elizabeth Toledo, 46, who was raped and then killed in the city of San Fernando, Argentina in December 2018.
It was reported that a neighbour the parrot saying “why did you beat me” as one of the arrested suspects took to their heels.
Head prosecutor, Bibiana Santella has added the parrot’s ‘testimony’ in the case file. An autopsy showed that the victim has been beaten, raped, and strangled to death.
The words of the parrot may be used in the upcoming rape and murder trial as a police officer guarding the crime scene heard a parrot say “Ay, no, Por favour, soltame!” (“No, please, let me go”).
The police believe the parrot was repeating its owner’s last words as she was allegedly beaten and raped by two housemates.
The victim’s body was discovered naked and lying on its back on a mattress on the floor. The men that allegedly kill Toledo were the three men she rented a room to in the same house.
Housemates Miguel Saturnino Rolon and Jorge Raul Alvarez have been arrested in connection with the homicide.
The third housemate was also arrested, but he reportedly has an alibi for the time of the alleged murder.
The trial’s start date is currently unknown.
