    Bud is an African grey parrot with a filthy mouth who also may have witnessed his owner’s murder, relatives of the victim say.

    “Don’t f—ing shoot,” the bird says on a video that the family says it took several weeks after the shooting.

    Martin Duram, 45, was shot and killed in his home on 128th Street in Ensley Township in May 2015 in what police first thought was a double-homicide. Police also found his wife, Glenna, in the home with a gunshot wound to the head. They realized an hour later she was still alive.

    Now, Michigan State Police reports obtained by 24 Hour News 8 under the Freedom of Information Act list the wife as a suspect, suggesting she tried to pull off a murder-suicide. She has since recovered from her injury.

    Duram’s parents said they’re frustrated that nobody has been charged in the death.

    They also say they believe the bird is a witness.

    Don't parrots have to hear something many times over to remember and repeat it?

    It all depends on each individual bird. Some love to talk and some don't.

    I have a 14 year old male Eclectus Parrot. He loves to talk to my wife and he especially loves to talk when he thinks no one is home and he is alone in his cage.

    Also from my personal experience with my Eclectus, he doesn't repeat much. When he talks he is either asking for something or someone and he usually talks sweet when he wants affection or love. He will call my name when he wants me or he will call for "mommy" when he wants my wife.
