GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Two hunters who discovered the bones of a slain 18-year-old University of Florida student told jurors they were drawn by a strong smell to the densely wooded area where the body was buried.

Hunter Jesse Everidge testified Friday at Pedro Bravo’s murder trial that he was looking for medicinal herbs in a wooded area when he noticed the smell of death.

Everidge said he immediately called 911 after following the stench and finding a human skull in the dirt.

The remains were eventually identified as those of Christian Aguilar, a UF student who was dating Bravo’s ex-girlfriend.

Prosecutors say a jealous Bravo murdered Aguilar and buried his body in those woods.

Bravo denies it, saying the two fought and parted ways before Aguilar went missing.
