Murder Charge For Husband of Missing Massachusetts Woman

Brian Walshe, the husband of the Massachusetts woman who has been missing since New Year's Day, has been charged in her murder, the Norfolk County District Attorney's office announced Tuesday. Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey issued an arrest warrant charging Walshe, 47, more than two weeks after Brian Walsh's wife, Ana Walshe, a 39-year-old mother of three boys, was last seen. She was reported missing a few days later, reports USA Today. Her body has not been found. Walshe is already in jail after he was charged last week with allegedly misleading police in their investigation. Walshe violated his bail on a federal fraud conviction. He has pleaded not guilty in the murder and is being held on $500,000 bail.


Ana Walshe was last seen in her home by a family member in the early hours of New Year's Day. She was supposed to take a ride-hailing service to Logan International Airport for a flight to Washington, D.C., where she worked. Authorities say that there is no evidence that she ever got into a vehicle or on a flight. Police discovered several items at a Boston-area trash processing facility last week. Last week, police found a bloody knife in the basement of the home she shared with her husband. Prosecutors also said that Walshe did not tell investigators he had spent hundreds of dollars on cleaning supplies at stories after his wife disappeared. Walshe is on probation pending sentencing in a 2021 wire fraud case in which he was convicted of selling fraudulent Andy Warhol paintings.
