Brian Walshe was indicted on Thursday by a grand jury in Massachusetts on charges related to the alleged murder of his wife.

The Norfolk County grand jury issued the indictment for the alleged murder of Ana Walshe, obstruction of justice, misleading police, and “improper conveyance of a human body,” District Attorney Michael Morrissey said. If convicted of the murder charge, Walshe faces a minimum sentence of life in prison without a chance of parole.

“This is only a step in a long process, during which Brian Walshe enjoys the Constitutional presumption of innocence and all of the protections afforded him under the Constitution,” Morrissey said. “We are thankful to the detectives who have put so many hours into assembling the evidence in this matter and the witnesses who have assisted us in coming to this step.”

Ana Walshe has been missing since New Year’s Day. Although her body has not been found, Brian Walshe’s search engine history allegedly showed 14 suspicious Google queries from Jan. 1 to Jan. 3, such as, “How long before a body starts to smell?” “How to stop a body from decomposing?” and “10 ways to dispose of a dead body if you really need to.”

Other questions included how long DNA lasts, how to clean blood from a wooden floor, and whether it’s better to throw away clothes from a crime scene or wash them.

Prosecutors also claimed they found physical evidence of a crime, including 10 trash bags filled with items that were allegedly stained with blood. The trash bags included a hacksaw, a hatchet, Ana Walshe’s COVID-19 vaccination card, rags, towels, slippers, tape, gloves, and cleaning materials. The items were found during their search through several garbage disposal sites.

Brian Walshe pleaded “not guilty” to the charges in January and is being held without bail. He will be arraigned for the charges at the Norfolk Superior Court in the coming weeks, but Morrissey said no date for the arraignment has been set so far.
