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. (More iPhone stories.)
