Brian Walshe is a Massachusetts-based art swindler who is accused of killing his 39-year-old missing wife, Ana Walshe. Ana’s body has still not been found and it is likely that Brian has dismembered and discarded his wife’s body.
He didn’t formally report about his missing wife until police showed up at the family’s rented house in Cohasset on 4th January 2023 to conduct a welfare check, after her Washington, DC-based employer, real estate firm Tishman Speyer reported her missing when she doesn’t turn up for work. Brian told the police that his wife took an Uber or a Lyft to the airport to fly to Washington, DC for work on 1st January 2023 but prosecutors said that no Ubers or Lyfts showed up at the house on that day. Police also found several bloodied items in the trash bags recovered from apartment complex where Brian’s mother lived and these items contained the DNA of both Brian and Ana Walshe.
According to prosecutors, Brian made several Google searches inquiring about dead bodies and the ways to dispose a dead body on his son’s iPad in the days after his wife Ana Walshe was last seen on January 1.
He did the following searches on google 1- How long before a body starts to smell 2- How to stop a body from decomposing 3- How to embalm a body 4- 10 ways to dispose of a dead body if you really need to 5- How long for someone to be missing to inherit 6- Can you throw away body parts 7- What does formaldehyde do 8- How long does DNA last 9- Can identification be made on partial remains 10- Dismemberment and the best ways to dispose of a body 11- How to clean blood from wooden floor 12- What happens when you put body parts in ammonia 13- Is it better to throw crime scene clothes away or wash them 14- Hacksaw best tool to dismember 15- Can you be charged with murder without a body 16- Can you identify a body with broken teeth 17- What happens to hair on a dead body 18- What is the rate of decomposition of a body in a plastic bag compared to on a surface in the woods 19- Can baking soda make a body smell good
He also bought $450 worth of cleaning supplies in cash from a hardware store.
It seems that he committed the heinous crime to end his marriage because he had also searched “What’s the best state to divorce for a man” on 27th December 2022 before his wife went missing.
