Murder suspect reportedly asked Siri about hiding a body

A Florida man accused of murder reportedly asked Siri where he could hide a body, according to local news reports.

Pedro Bravo, 20, of Gainesville, Fla., allegedly asked Siri where he could "hide his roommate." In typical, jocular Siri fashion, she answered with some now-unfortunate jokes. "Swamps? Reservoirs? Metal foundries? Dumps?" was her response, asking "what kind of place" he was looking for.

Bravo has been accused of killing Christian Aguilar, a student at the University of Florida. The pair allegedly got into an argument related to Bravo's ex-girlfriend, who had then dated Aguilar.

The Siri conversation, which reportedly occurred on Sept. 20, 2012, was presented at Bravo's trial, which is expected to conclude later this week.

Update: Local news outlet WUFT, which is reporting live from the trial in Gainesville, Florida, reports that WXPI incorrectly reported the Siri story. The Siri question was found in a photo on Bravo's phone, police clarified, but Gainesville police did not testify that Bravo had asked Siri the question himself. WXPI also reported that Bravo and Aguilar were roommates, when in fact they were not, according to WUFT.
