The court has heard that the decisive clue that set the police in the direction of investigating her flatmates came from her parrot.

A court in San Isidro, Argentina, has heard that a cop guarding the scene heard her pet parrot say “No, por favour, soltame” (No, please, let me go).

They say it was repeating its owner’s last words as Elizabeth was attacked in December 2018.

A neighbour also allegedly overheard it say “Why did you beat me?” as one suspect fled the house.

Beyond the parrot’s testimony, which the head prosecutor Bibiana Santella included in the case file, DNA and dental evidence have played a key role in supporting the prosecution allegations.

Miguel Rolon, 53, and Jorge Alvarez, 65, have gone on trial and face life imprisonment if found guilty.
