Default Police think Alexa may have witnessed a New Hampshire double homicide

Alexa may have been listening, as she almost always is, when Christine Sullivan was stabbed to death on Jan. 27, 2017, in the kitchen of the home in Farmington, N.H., where she lived with her boyfriend.

But does Alexa remember any of it?

Thatís the question state prosecutors are hoping will produce key evidence in the murder case against Timothy Verrill, who is accused of killing Sullivan and her friend Jenna Pellegrini over suspicions that they were informing police about an alleged drug operation. Prosecutors say Alexa, the voice service for Amazonís Echo smart devices, was sitting on the kitchen counter the entire time.

I know this isn't what the police intend, but I'm totally picturing an Echo device sitting on the witness stand being sworn in.

When I get home tonight, I think I will ask mine: "Alexa! Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?"

I am quite curious as to how Alexa responds.

Her response, "sorry I don't know that one". Disappointing...

Siri said: "I'm sorry. I'm afraid I don't have an answer for that."

No imagination...

Alexa said, "Get a T1 installed and I didn't see nothin'."

I always like the response of Richard Nixon's head in Futurama: "Am I under oath when I take the oath?"
