A Florida man accused of killing his best friend allegedly told the iPhone application Siri he needed to hide his roommate.
Cell phone evidence against 20-year-old Pedro Bravo was presented in court Tuesday.
Bravo is charged with drugging and strangling Christian Aguilar after they had an argument about Bravo’s ex-girlfriend, Erika Friman, who Aguilar was now dating.
Investigators found a request to Siri on Sept. 20, 2012, allegedly from Bravo's phone.
“I need to hide my roommate,” Bravo reportedly said.
Seri’s response: “What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps? Reservoirs? Metal foundries? Dumps?”
Bravo’s defense attorney Michael Ruppert argued that there is no way to know if Bravo asked the question.
“It’s a screenshot from an iPhone. It’s just probably not Mr. Bravo’s iPhone,” he told ABC News.
Authorities say the location of Bravo’s phone the night of Aguilar’s disappearance does not match where he said he was.
Det. Matt Goeckel of the Gainesville Police Department also testified that the flashlight on Bravo’s phone had been used nine times the night of the alleged murder. It was on a total of 48 minutes.
Aguilar’s body was found 22 days after he went missing in a shallow grave in a remote field 60 miles from his home, the Daily Mail reports. He had been strangled to death.
Prosecutors are also focusing on a sketchpad they say Bravo wrote hateful messages in.
“No one will stop me,” he allegedly wrote. “I will get out of Miami and into Gainesville by January 2013 and I will get her back.”
