The parents of Martin Duram say his pet parrot witnessed his murder in 2015, and is now recounting the events which preceded the West Michigan man's death.

Bud, an African grey parrot, can frequently be heard saying, "Don't f---ing shoot!"

“That bird picks up everything and anything, and it’s got the filthiest mouth around,” Duram’s mom, Lillian Duram tells WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids.

Duram's wife, who was also found with a gunshot wound, has since recovered and is considered to be a suspect.

Officials say it's unlikely that anything said by the bird will be used as evidence in the case.
