In Massachusetts, authorities are working frantically to solve the mystery of a missing real estate executive Ana Walshe, and her husband’s behavior is now coming under increased scrutiny.
The story began at the onset of the New Year, when Ana Walshe went missing. Here husband, Brian, who was already known to police on an unrelated matter, soon became a prime person of interest in the case thanks to his strange behavior around the time of Ana’s disappearance.
Police are now releasing a number of new clues in the case, some of which appear to be rather disturbing.
Blood and a damaged knife were found in the home of missing Massachusetts mother of three and real estate executive Ana Walshe, prosecutors revealed Monday in court.
Brian Walshe, 46, the missing woman’s husband, appeared in Quincy District Court after he was arrested Sunday on charges he misled investigators about his whereabouts after his 39-year-old wife’s disappearance.
“They found blood in the basement. Blood was found in the basement area, as well as a knife, which also contains some blood,” prosecutor Lynn Beland told Judge Mark Coven. “Part of the knife was damaged.”
Ana Walshe’s cellphone pinged near the family’s Cohasset home on Jan. 1st and 2nd after her husband alleges she had already left their home, the prosecutor said.
In a glaring omission, he failed to tell investigators he took a trip to Home Depot on Jan. 2 at about 4 p.m. to purchase $450 in cleaning supplies, including “mops, bucket tops…drop cloths, as well as various kinds of tape,” Beland added.
Brian Walshe has been “cooperative” according to investigators, allowing them to search his home.
Brian has insisted that he has committed no wrongdoing.
