Excerpt from Science Alert
Written by Josh Hrala
Authorities in Arkansas are investigating the death of a man whose body was recently found in a hot tub, and they think the suspect’s Amazon Echo speaker – and the voice-activated software that controls it – might have been a witness to what happened.
Echo is a hands-free speaker you control by talking to 'Alexa', which is pretty much Amazon's version of Siri, and police think the software might have overheard the murder. But so far Amazon is refusing to hand over the data as evidence.
