Husband pleads not guilty to murdering mom-of-three Ana Walshe
Brian Walshe, the husband of missing mom Ana Walshe, pleaded not guilty to her murder on Wednesday as prosecutors read out evidence collected against him.
Walshe appeared before a judge at the Quincy District Court, where he pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and disinterring a body.
Walshe barely spoke at all during the hearing. When the judge asked him if he understood the charges, he said ‘I do.’
At the hearing, Assistant District Attorney Lynn Beland read off evidence against the defendant, including a long list of Google searches including ’10 ways to dismember a body,’ ‘how long before a body starts to smell,’ and ‘can you identify a body with broken teeth.’
Walshe shook his head as Beland read some of the searches he made on one of his young children’s iPad.
Beland also detailed how surveillance footage captured Walshe disposing of heavy trash bags in dumpsters at several different apartment complexes.
A search of local waste disposal facilities revealed multiple items containing Ana’s DNA, including her Hunter boots, a Prada handbag, and her COVID-19 vaccine card.
Additionally, investigators found a hacksaw, hatchet, and cutting shears with her DNA.
