As stated many times that these devices are really deep state listening stations has been confirmed in a double murder case.
A New Hampshire judge has ordered Amazon to turn over two days of Amazon Echo recordings in a double murder case.
Prosecutors believe that recordings from an Amazon Echo in a Farmington home where two women were murdered in January 2017 may yield further clues to their killer. Although police seized the Echo when they secured the crime scene, any recordings are stored on Amazon servers.
The order granting the search warrant, obtained by TechCrunch, said that there is “probable cause to believe” that the Echo picked up “audio recordings capturing the attack” and “any events that preceded or succeeded the attack.”
Amazon is also directed to turn over any “information identifying any cellular devices that were linked to the smart speaker during that time period,” the order said.
Timothy Verrill, a resident of neighboring Dover, N.H., was charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He pleaded not guilty and awaits trial.
When reached, an Amazon spokesperson did not comment — but the company told the Associated Press last week that it won’t release the information “without a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us.”
