CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Police say a parrot cried for help and then laughed in a South Carolina home where a woman is accused of neglect in the death of her 98-year-old mother.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports Wednesday that police think the parrot's cries mimicked the interaction between the mother and daughter.
Authorities summoned to the unheated home in St. George on Monday night found Anne Copeland inside. Authorities say there were seven dogs and several cats inside, and the floors were covered with animal droppings.
Authorities say Copeland died the next day.
Copeland's daughter, Gloria Park Clark, is charged with abuse and neglect resulting in the death of a vulnerable adult. A bond hearing for her was scheduled Wednesday.
