Ana Walshe, 39, a Massachusetts mother of three, went missing on Jan. 1. Sixteen days later, police issued an arrest warrant charging her husband, Brian Walshe, 47, with her murder. At his arraignment on Jan. 18, a prosecutor declared that rather than seeking a divorce, B. Walshe beat to death and dismembered A. Walshe. Authorities already had B. Walshe in custody as they arrested him on Jan. 8 for misleading the investigation. Evidence that led to B. Walshe’s arrest includes the discovery of A. Walshe’s belongings and blood in dumpsters and the suspect’s Google searches about dismemberment and disposal of dead bodies. Cell phone data additionally placed B. Walshe at a dumpster where police discovered a hacksaw, blood stains, cleaning equipment, along with A. Walshe’s purse and COVID vaccine card. Prosecutors did not say if they found A. Walshe’s remains. B. Walshe pleaded not guilty to the murder and misleading investigation charges; his next court hearing is on Feb. 9.
