An Argentine woman, 46, Elizabeth Toledo was r*ped and murdered in the city of San Fernando in December 2018, her parrot who was in cage at the time of the murder will give evidence of how she was murder.
The late Elizabeth Toledo’s body was found n*ked on a mattress on the floor in her apartment in Buenos Aires, next to her parrot.
One of the filed evidence by the police last week in a recorder statement, from a police officer who stated that he heard the late Toledo’s parrot shortly after the killing saying;
“no, Por favour, soltame!” (“No, please, let me go”).
According to media reports, the police believes the parrot was repeating its owner’s last words as she was allegedly beaten and r*ped by two housemates.
The police officer who had been standing guard outside the murder scene when he heard what sounded like a woman screaming inside. He looked inside the apartment – but only found Toledo’s naked and bruised body lying on a mattress on the floor, along with the green parrot in a cage
Another evidence also includes witness testimony from a neighbour who claimed to have seen the parrot repeat the trick on a different occasion.
Her neighbor told police that the parrot once said;
‘por qué me pegaste?’ (why did you hit me?) after one of the men hit Toledo.
Two old men, 51-year-old Miguel Saturnino Rolon and 62-year-old Jorge Raul Alvarez are on trial for the r*pe and murder of 46-year-old Elizabeth Toledo in Buenos Aires in 2018.
Bibiana Santella, Head Prosecutor has reportedly included the parrot’s ‘testimony’ in the case file. Other evidence includes a bite mark from the victim’s forearm which they say matches the bite of Rolon’s teeth ‘like a fingerprint’.
However, DNA evidence found on Toledo’s body links Alvarez to the r*pe and killing, they allege.
An autopsy showed that the victim has been beaten, raped, and strangled to death, according to Clarin.
Ms Toledo rented a room to three men in the same house. Her housemates Miguel Saturnino Rolon and Jorge Raul Alvarez are the two who have been arrested in connection with the homicide.
The other third housemate was also arrested, despite not being at home when the alleged incident occurred.
The trials start date is pending and hasn’t been revealed.
