Ana Walshe’s friend makes eerie predictions about her husband Brian’s fate after he’s accused of her murder
FRIENDS of Ana Walshe react with joy after her husband Brian was charged with first-degree murder on Thursday – three months after the missing mother-of-three went missing.
Brian Walshe, 48, was indicted by a grand jury in the murder of Ana, 39, at her home in Cohasset, Massachusetts, in early January.
He was also charged with misleading police investigations and “improper carriage of a human body,” according to a statement from Norfolk prosecutors.
Ana, a property manager, was last seen alive in the early hours of New Year’s Day.
Brian told police she left early that morning and took a ride to Boston’s Logan International Airport to fly to Washington DC for work, but she never made the flight.
Investigators have since claimed Brian searched online “how to dispose of the body of a 115-pound woman” and bought $450 worth of cleaning supplies from a Home Depot in the days after Ana was last seen.
He pleaded not guilty to murder in Quincy Circuit Court during an indictment in January, but the new indictment moves the case to Norfolk High Court, where he will be indicted in the next few weeks.
During his first court appearance in January, Brian was filmed smiling as he was escorted by police in handcuffs.
Ana’s friend, Natasha Babushkina, told The US Sun at the time seeing Walshe’s grin made her sick.
But following his indictment on Thursday’s first-degree murder charge, Natasha says she doubts Walshe is still smiling.
“I’m very happy,” beamed Natasha, a Ukrainian. “This is excellent news. I was very excited when I saw so much jumping up and down in the car.
“We have seen the Ukrainian war and the Russian war without justice for so long, but this was a breath of fresh air.
“It looks like justice will be done for Ana soon.”
Walshe faces life behind bars if found guilty on all charges in court.
Natasha says neither the length nor the severity of the punishment will ever be enough to make up for the tragic loss of Ana, both for her friends and her three young children, who range in age from two to six.
“Their children […] they lost a mother and father. He didn’t just do it [allegedly] When he took Ana’s life, he took his children’s too,” added Natasha.
“I’m relieved that someone is finally being held accountable for all the horrific things that have happened.
“I bet Brian isn’t grinning anymore, is he?”
A MYSTERY PREDICTION
Natasha said she hopes that if Brian is proven guilty, he will receive the maximum sentence and be forced to spend the rest of his days in solitary confinement with only his thoughts to keep him company.
“He’s a sick person. I don’t have any feelings for him at all – neither negative nor positive,” she said.
“But I hope he can’t watch TV or eat good food. I hope they put him in a cell alone where he’s alive but alone with his own thoughts. That is my wish.
“He has to live with himself. Without books, without anything.
“I won’t be surprised if he ends up killing himself,” she added.
“I’m not an expert […] but part of me wishes he would someday so we wouldn’t have to pay taxes so he could sit idly in jail for the rest of his life.
“But the state shouldn’t kill him, he should be forced to live alone and then see how he feels.”
Ana’s body has not been found, but investigators believe she was killed and dismembered in the basement of her home.
A search of the Walshe family home revealed blood in the basement and the discovery of a broken, blood-stained knife.
Additional evidence believed to be connected to Ana’s disappearance was found from a garbage dump near Brian Walshe’s mother’s home, where he told police he was driving the day he last met Ana had seen.
These items included a hacksaw, a hatchet, and a bloodstained carpet. Both Brian’s and Ana’s DNA was found on some items.
Ana would not be reported missing until January 4th.
Days later, Brian was arrested for allegedly making misleading statements to police.
Police allege he lied about his movements in the days after Ana’s disappearance, including failing to mention a spree at a local hardware store where he spent $450 on cleaning supplies.
Brian was on probation for fraud at the time of his wife’s disappearance.
As part of his release terms, he had to request leave from home with specific times, places and reasons.
His trip to the Home Depot – for which he wore gloves and a mask and paid cash – took place during the time he was supposed to pick up his kids from school, which was closed that day, according to an affidavit.
Brian is also accused by prosecutors of looking for ways to dispose of a corpse between January 1 and 3 and performing several other murky Google searches about the decomposition and dismemberment of corpses.
Disturbing entries included “How long does it take for a body to start smelling?”, “What happens if you put body parts in ammonia?” and “Can you be charged with murder without a body.”
“Think of the Children”
A date for Walshe’s higher court hearing has not yet been set.
He appeared disheveled at a court date last month when his legal team expressed frustration at getting the information they need from prosecutors to begin preparing his defense.
He appeared via Zoom from Dedham House of Corrections in an orange prison jumpsuit, speaking only to confirm he could hear the proceedings.
Defense attorney Tracy Miner said at the time prosecutors gave her very little discovery information about the case.
“We received next to nothing,” she claimed.
“We haven’t even gotten a search warrant, the inventory for the search warrant – we don’t have the basic stuff that we should have had right away.
“So I’m a little skeptical that Discovery will have everything I need.”
As the case prepares for trial, Natasha told The US Sun her concern now focuses primarily on Ana’s children, who are still in state custody.
She and a group of friends have been campaigning for months to have the children released into the care of a known family member or foster family.
Natasha said Ana’s sister, who lives in Canada, is trying to adopt the three boys but the process is proving slow.
“It’s imperative that the children are with their family and back in a stable environment,” she said.
“You don’t have to be an expert to know that all of this could traumatize her further.
“And at least in that case they would have their aunt and know they were safe, and I’m sure it would be refreshing for them to get away from Massachusetts and start over.”
“I’m a mom and I can’t stop thinking about these guys […] it makes no sense to the DCF [Department of Children and Families] not reuniting her with her family as soon as possible.”
