When Siri was first introduced to the iPhone, users would joke around and ask Siri questions such as “Do you love me?” or “Where can I hide a dead body?” However, no one ever really that anyone would be stupid enough to seriously ask Siri how to get away with murder.
But then came along Pedro Bravo.
According to MTV (via Daily Mail), the 20-year-old University of Florida student is on trial for killing his roommate, 18-year-old Christian Aguilar, in 2012. A Gainesville Police Department detective presented evidence that, on the night of the crime, Bravo told Siri, “I need to hide my roommate.”
Siri replied with the options of swamps, reservoirs, metal foundries and dumps.
Police also revealed that Bravo’s GPS logs show him traveling towards the woods where Aguilar’s body was later discovered, and that he used the flashlight app nine times in the half hour after midnight.
Apparently the roommates were feuding over Bravo’s ex-girlfriend, who’d started dating Aguilar.
Bravo pleaded not guilty and could receive a life sentence if convicted.
