New revelations from Brian Walshe raise suspicions about Ana Walshe’s disappearance
New information emerged Monday about Brian Walshe, the husband of Ana Walshe, a woman from Cohasset, Massachusetts who went missing on January 1.
On Sunday, the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office announced that officers from the Cohasset Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police arrested Brian Walshe for misleading a police investigation into finding his wife.
Walshe appeared in court Monday morning, and prosecutors revealed new information.
Fox’s LiveNOW’s Josh Breslow shared a video of the entire court appearance where prosecutors can be heard talking about how Walshe was spotted on surveillance footage on Jan. 2 buying over $400 worth of cleaning supplies from a local hardware store.
“Surveillance checked during the investigation showed that the accused [Brian Walshe] In fact, sometime after four o’clock on Jan. 2, he went to the Home Depot,” prosecutor Lynn Beland said. This includes mops, buckets, tarps, Tyvek cloths, as well as various types of tape.”
Additionally, Beland revealed that a search warrant was executed at Walshe’s home, and blood and a knife “that also contained some blood” were found in the basement.
Beland also spoke about how Brian Walshe told investigators the last time he saw his wife, which was on January 1, when she was taking an Uber or Lyft to an airport to fly to Washington, DC. However, Ana Walshe never arrived in Washington, DC. and police could find no record of a call from Uber or Lyft.
“These various testimonies caused the investigation to be delayed to the point that during the time frame he did not report his wife and made various testimonies that allowed him time to clean up evidence, eliminate evidence and cause a delay ,” Beland said.
Bail for Brian Walshe was set at $500,000 in cash, the judge said.
On January 5, the Cohasset Police Department issued a statement asking for the public’s assistance in finding Ana Walshe.
“Ana Walshe, aged 39, was last seen at her home in Cohasset just after midnight on New Year’s Day,” police said. “Walshe is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. She has brown hair, brown eyes and an olive complexion. It is believed that she speaks with an Eastern European accent.”
Two days later, police said in an updated statement that investigators had completed a ground search near the couple’s home.
“Twenty soldiers from the MSP Special Emergency Response Team, a specialized unit trained in search and rescue, plus three K9 teams and the State Police Air Wing searched wooded areas near Ms. Walshe’s home with negative results for the second day as a result. State police divers also searched a small stream and pool with negative results. Ground searches will not resume unless police receive new information warranting it,” the statement said.
