Can an Amazon Echo be a murder witness?
from By Bambi Majumdar
Law enforcement officers in Bentonville, Arkansas, are seeking a digital witness for a homicide investigation. During their investigation of a murder scene, police noticed an Amazon Echo in the kitchen of the premises. They think the device may have recorded some ambient noise or background chatter, and they are hoping the device recordings could lead them to more clues about the crime. When no human witness is available, should evidence from devices be admissible in court?
