The former assistant U.S. attorney said that prosecutors in Massachusetts may not need to recover a body for a conviction in the case of Ana Walshe
A former prosecutor says that there’s “more than enough evidence” to convict Brian Walshe after he was charged with murder in the disappearance of his wife Ana Walshe, even without a body.
The Norfolk District Attorney’s Office announced on Tuesday that Brian Walshe is being charged with the murder of Ana Walshe after she went missing on New Year’s Day.
“Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey [announced] the issuance of a murder warrant in the death of Ana Walshe, 39, missing from Cohasset since on or about New Year’s Day,” a statement from the district attorney’s office said.
Brian Walshe is also being charged with improper transport of a body, according to a spokesperson for the district attorney’s office.
Previously, Brian Walshe was charged with misleading a police investigation after he allegedly lied about where he had been.
According to investigators, Brian Walshe told them that he traveled to stores like CVS and Whole Foods, but might have not actually been there.
Brian Walshe also didn’t state that he used $450 in cash to buy cleaning supplies from a Rockland, Massachusetts, Home Depot store.
Court documents state that he was seen on surveillance video “wearing a black surgical mask, blue surgical gloves and making a cash purchase” to buy items like mops, tape, and drop cloths.
According to investigators, a bloody, damaged knife was found in the basement of the couple’s Cohasset home.
