A college student who is accused of killing his roommate allegedly used Siri to research places to hide a body, according to a news report.

The Palm Beach Post reported that Pedro Bravo, a 20-year-old University of Florida student, said to Siri "I need to hide my roommate." It said Siri responded "What kind of place are you looking for? dumps, swamps, reservoirs, metal foundries, mines."

Bravo is accused of kidnapping and strangling his friend Christian Aguilar in September 2012 after an argument. Aguilar disappeared on Sept. 20, and Bravo was charged with murder eight days later. The trial for the case began last week.

Records also show Bravo also used his iPhone's flashlight nine times the day Aguilar disappeared.

Here's the full story in The Palm Beach Post.
