Guess what? She gave him a few suggestions
A man accused of killing his roommate in Gainesville, Fla., told the Siri application on his iPhone that he needed “to hide my roommate” on the day the two men were last seen together.
Siri’s joking reply has now taken on a sinister twist. “What kind of place are you looking for?” the app asked back. “Swamps? Reservoirs? Metal foundries? Dumps?”
This evidence was presented Tuesday in the trial of Pedro Bravo, who is charged with drugging and strangling Christian Aguilar after an argument over Bravo’s ex-girlfriend, whom Aguilar had been dating.
Detectives have been reviewing Bravo’s phone for clues, and found his request to Siri, made on Sept. 20, 2012, when the two men were captured by a surveillance camera outside a Gainesville Best Buy store.
Gainesville Police Department detective Matt Goeckel said the flashlight on Bravo’s phone had also been used on nine occasions that night, for a total of 48 minutes, and its location points don’t match where Bravo said he was.
Aguilar’s remains were found three weeks later, about 60 miles away.
The trial is expected to be concluded later this week.
