Siri Snitches on Accused Roommate Killer
20-year-old Pedro Bravo of Florida is accused of murdering his roommate. The two, according to police, got into a fight after going to Best Buy to buy a Kanye West CD. The victim, Christian Aguilar, had also started dating Bravo's ex.
Bravo's iPhone does not enjoy the privilege of not being forced to testify against him, as a spouse can be allowed.
And Siri will sing.
Evidence collected from Bravo’s iPhone includes records of him using the phone’s flashlight function nine times from 11.31pm to 12:01am on the day that Bravo disappeared and asking the phone: “I need to hide my roommate”.
According to evidence reproduced from the trial by local news stations and picked up by Buzzfeed, Siri responded “What kind of place are you looking for?” before offering four options: “Swamps, reservoirs, metal foundries, dumps”.
Police also used data from the flashlight app and the GPS data from the phone to debunk Bravo's explanation of his whereabouts on the night of the murder.
