A 46-year-old Argentine woman, Elizabeth Toledo was raped and murdered within the city of San Fernando in December 2018.
Her body was found naked on a mattress on the ground in an apartment in Buenos Aires , next to her parrot.
As a part of the evidence filed within the case last week, police recorded a press release from a policeman who said he heard the Toledo parrot shortly after the killing saying no, Por favour, soltame!” (“No, please, let me go”), Clarin reports.
The police believe the parrot was repeating its owner’s last words as she was allegedly beaten and raped by two housemates.
The officer had been standing guard outside the murder scene when he heard what seemed like a lady screaming inside. He looked inside the apartment – but only found Toledo’s naked and bruised body lying on a mattress on the ground , along side the green parrot in a cage.
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 among the men hit Toledo.
51-year-old Miguel Saturnino Rolon and 62-year-old Jorge Raul Alvarez are on trial for the rape and murder of 46-year-old Elizabeth Toledo in Buenos Aires in 2018.
