Transcript for Talking Parrot May Be Sole Witness in Homicide Case
Time now for the big board and our team of insiders lined up and ready to go. Let's start with a bizarre murder investigation in Michigan. Martin duram shot and killed in what was initially to be a failed double homicide. Martin's wife was shot and survived but now his parents say martin's pet parrot was a witness to the crime and is mimicking a final feud recreating both sides of the argument between the two. Yeah, it's very interesting and the big thing is what the parrot is saying could implicate his wife in his death. Take a listen. Shut up. Get your Over here now. . Don't Shoot. Isn't that chilling? To hear that. All right, so joining us now we have Alex Spiro. Defense attorney and, Alex, the prosecutor says he is not aware of any precedent that's ever been set by having a parrot's testimony be entered into evidence. What do you think about the add missability of something like this? Well, certainly evidence of animal reactions has been present in cases insofar as, you know, a dog barking at a suspect and then law enforcement focuses on that suspect. Now, obviously there aren't very many animals that speak the English language. Is the evidence relevant, I think in this case it would be and then really the crux of it is going to be how reliable this kind of evidence would be. Alex, police say the wife is a suspect. She has denied killing her husband. And as we talk about the parrot possibly testimony being brought into evidence awes a defense attorney, how would you counter that. Is there a TV in the house? That kind of phraseology is often seen on television. Is it potentially mimicking television? I'd like to know the science behind how parrots mimic. How reliable it is and is it potential Amelie being taken out of context or from some other place. The timing of it and things such as that. Reason why they call it parroting. I mean it's like a recording. Very interesting, Alex. Thank you, Alex. We move on to NBA superstar Steph curry's big announcement revealing he is skipping the upcoming olympic games in Rio several factors including recent injuries are contributing to his decision and ESPN's brad Daugherty is going to join us now live. Always good to see you, my man, brad. Let's talk about Steph. Good morning. Good morning to you now. He is saying and we know he's had injuries especially this season and he's saying that and other factors. What do you make of the other factors, brad? Well, I think it's pretty obvious. The zika virus scare has a lot of athletes considering their participation in the olympics and whether or not they're going to go forward. You can't blame someone if they decide to step aside because of the uncertainty of the virus, so I think that is the other that we're hearing a lot of the athletes mention when they're contemplating participating. Any backlash for Steph curry on this Jo I know there is a lot of disappointment. There is a lot of disappointment because he's the best player in the country and possibly the world and want to see him play but I'm sure there will be some backlash but at the end of the day his health, family and career are the most important things and, you know, Steph has gone through a myriad of injuries with his right angle. Had surgery back in 2010 and torn ligaments and sprained his right mcl in his first knee so the NBA playoffs if you go to the finals and again this year, ten months long so he only has two months to recover before the season is under way again and need that is rest but with the zika concerns, I think that's very legitimate and I know people want to try to stay away from that and sidestep it if you're an athlete and worked your entire life to get to this point but when you have more than 150 doctor, scientists, ethicists writing to Dr. Mark CHAN, director of the world health organization, that's something to take seriously. Our Dr. Richard Besser has been talking about that, as well. No doubt they've injuries are a legitimate concern and a legitimate factor when Chris Paul, other all-stars saying they're not going to Rio, brad. Yeah, I think everyone looks at what happened to Paul George, the pow he forward who plays for Indiana, had the horrific knee injury during the games a couple of years ago and it derailed his career. He's bounced back and become a legitimate superstar again, but you have to take this into consideration when you're talking about your career, your health and your family. And the family. Thanks, brad. Next up a Maryland man named Tim Connor waging a war against the traffic app waze after he says it rerouted cars through his tiny residential street at all hours of the day. We have Mr. Wonderful, Kevin o'leary here from "Shark tank" joining us now. Kevin, he said he tried to fight back saying there was a traffic jam or a roadblock for an accident on his street but obviously they caught on pretty quickly it wasn't true. Those wazers know what they're doing. What's the best way to take on a big company like waze to keep his street quiet again? Doing exactly what he did. Waze is basically a giant social network that uses motion in your cell phones to determine where traffic is. Of course, roads all of us in America pay taxes to have them and open to the public. What this fellow has gone hat tried to game the system and put bad date into into the map and make people think there was an accident on his street. It doesn't work because clearly the system has algorithms and catches that fraud which is basically what it is. It is a form of fraud but if you want to fight the big guy and take on a giant app like waze which by the way is owned by Google, it's inside all Google maps this is uubiquitous, social media is how you do battle today. You and I are talking about this now because it went viral. In the end, though, I think this benefits waze more than anybody else. If you didn't know about the app you certainly know about it now. It's on "Good morning America." They're handling it because you're right. They say they have 50 million user and get one complaint like this a month approximately but you're right. We're talking about it so with social media it be effective, Kevin. You're right. There's no question. I use this product in New York and Miami and Los Angeles, Chicago, it works. And at the end of the day that's what matters. It's not going away any time soon. Thank you so much, gentlemen. One of the things Alex and brad and our hot shot of the
