In India, a murderer was put behind bars when the victim's pet parrot squealed on him. The police had no initial leads on the crime, until the parrot, named Hercule, provided the vital clue. The victim's husband picked up on the fact that whenever his nephew visited, the parrot would start screeching. It would even react when the nephew's name was mentioned in conversation. The family then informed the police and the suspect was taken into custody. Upon questioning, the nephew confessed to the crime.
