Yep, a Murder Suspect Actually Asked Siri Where to Hide the Body

By Mario Aguilar on at

Answering "I need to hide a body" used to be one of Siri's little jokes. She used to give suggestions. She doesn't anymore. Why? We can't be sure, but it miiight have something to do with an accused murderer who asked the question apparently in earnest.

Florida man Pedro Bravo is accused of murdering his friend Christian Aguilar and burying the body in nearby woods — not one of Siri's suggestions — in September of 2012. And now records from his phone, which were only just presented to the jury at his trial, show he mentioned to Siri "I need to hide my roommate", to which she gave her cheeky but also sorta kinda pretty useful "joke" answer, seen above.

Perhaps even more damningly, the phone's location data also blows up Bravo's alibi, while other data indicates the torch was turned on nine times and used for over 48 minutes on the night in question. It doesn't take a virtual assistant to figure out what that might be all about. [The Independent]
