(Newser) – You know how people like to ask Siri jokey questions, like how to hide a body? Apparently Pedro Bravo, now on trial in Florida for the strangulation death of 18-year-old roommate Christian Aguilar, didn't get the memo, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Police say that on Sept. 20, 2012, Bravo told Siri: "I need to hide my roommate." Evidence presented at his trial yesterday alleges Siri suggested the usual: "Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps."

Police believe Bravo killed Aguilar over an obsession with Bravo's ex-girlfriend by poisoning him in the back seat of his SUV at Walmart, then strangling him, possibly with a belt, CBS reports. Aguilar's body was found partially buried in the woods three weeks later. Police reviewed the data on Bravo's phone and say he was very active the night of Aguilar's death and not where he claimed to be. The trial—in which Bravo faces seven charges, including homicide and mishandling human remains—should conclude this week.

Meanwhile, this poor 18 year old victim is dead, and I should feel terrible. Yet, here I sit laughing so hard at Newser's comedic contributors my stomach hurts. Newser posters, you've outdone yourselves.

OMG: We were at a party a while back and asked Siri some questions that should never be repeated. I had no idea the questions we asked were monitored, recorded or stored. Everything was a joke, but I guess could have been taken out of context. I will forever be more careful when asking Siri a question.

Siri couldn't help him, but she did activate a commercial for Dignity funeral services. You know the biker guys who ride into the Chapel with a photo of Bill in the side car. Or the men carrying their deceased rowing partner in a coffin that looks like a boat.
