anna walsheThe 39-year-old mother of three young children was last seen on New Year’s Day and reported missing a few days after she failed to show up at her place of employment at a real estate firm.
According to the first testimony of Brian WalsheAfter she went to work in Washington, he spent time shopping for his mother in nearby Swampscott. A day later, on January 2, the man went to eat ice cream with one of his children.
However, Brian, who remained on probation after being convicted in a wire fraud case for selling fraudulent paintings of Andy Warhol, was caught on security cameras at a Home Depot store, purchasing numerous cleaning supplies.
Norfolk County prosecutors found no evidence that Ana Walshe made the taxi ride, much less that she arrived at the airport.
In addition, the police denied the existence of any evidence that Brian ran errands for his mother on New Year’s Day. Instead, prosecutors found surveillance video from Jan. 2 showing the husband buying, for cash, nearly $450 worth of cleaning supplies, including mops, a bucket and tarps.
Authorities deemed Brian Walshe’s statements to police a “clear attempt to mislead and delay investigators” while buying time to clean up a scene where a possible crime occurred.
Prosecutor Lynn Beland said in court last week that her statements “gave her time to clean up the evidence or dispose of the evidence.”
Brian didn’t even report his wife missing.
It was the Tishman Speyer firm, where Ana Walshe worked, that reported her disappearance on January 4, after she did not show up for her usual work.
For her part, Brian Walshe’s defense attorney, Tracy Miner, said the man was the one who called the workplace to find out if they knew of Ana’s whereabouts before they called the police.
