According to CNN, detectives found that Brian Walshe had been googling "how to dispose of a 115-pound woman’s body" around the time of his wife's disappareance. A police search warrant executed on the family home of Brian and Ana Walshe in Cohasset, Massachusetts, uncovered a damaged knife with traces of blood, prosecutors told Quincy District Court on Monday.
It was also revealed that he had spent $450 on cleaning supplies at a Home Depot the day after his wife's disappearance, the Daily Mail reports and Fox news reports that, trash bags containing a bloody hacksaw and hatchet were found at a waste facility an hour outside the Walshe's home.
According to local news, Brian Walshe also searched how to dismember a body in the time period of his wife's disappearance.
Ana, 39, has not been seen or heard from since she failed to catch a flight From Boston to Washington DC in the early hours of New Year's Day. She was first reported missing by her employer and by her husband on January 4, three days later.
Brain Walshe, a 46-year-old stay-at-home dad, told authorities that he had only left his property once since his wife's disappearance, to take his some for ice cream. However, security footage from a Home Depot allegedly spotted him on January 2 buying taps, mops, buckets, clothes and various kinds of tape.
Prosecutors argued that his false statements could have bought him time to "either clean up evidence [or] dispose of evidence."
Police arrested Walshe on suspicion of "misleading" authorities, but have yet to charge him with anything else. He is being held on $50,000 cash bail.
Upon leaving the station to be transported to his arraignment on Monday morning, he can be seen smirking at reporters.
Walshe was previously arrested in November 2016 in connection with $80,000 of art fraud, and was ordered to be on house arrest until his sentencing, which has yet to take place. His house arrest means that he has to report to authorities whenever he goes anywhere.
