ANA WALSH’S DISAPPEARANCE
JANUARY 1ST: Ana leaves a New Year’s Eve party at 1:30 am
She does not show up for work in Washington DC, and there is no evidence that she made it to the airport for her flight.
4 JANUARY: Tishman Speyer’s security chief in DC calls the police to report her missing.
The caller told the operator he had informed her husband
6TH JANUARY: A fire was reported in the home Ana shared with her husband
JANUARY 8: Brian Walshe Arrested on Misleading Investigations
JANUARY 9: Police say they found blood in the basement of the couple’s home
10. JANUARY: Police say they found garbage bags full of bloody objects, a hatchet and a hacksaw at a garbage dump near the house
According to friends, she and Brian had fallen out over their busy work schedule.
She had spent more time working in Washington DC for the real estate firm Tishman Speyer while her husband was at home in Cohasset, Massachusetts.
The hearing is scheduled to begin shortly after 9 a.m.
Ana, a Serbian immigrant who met the wealthy Walshe while working in hotels in 2005, was enjoying her busy life when she disappeared.
She regularly posted about her colleagues on social media, where her husband was rarely mentioned.
She worked for Tishman Speyer for two years and spent a lot of time away from her family.
On January 1, she failed to show up for work in Washington DC.
Four days later, the chief of security at Tishman Speyer in DC called the police in Cohasset, where she lived with her family, and requested a welfare check.
The caller said he informed Brian that Ana was missing.
On January 8th, Brian was arrested for misleading the police investigation into his wife’s disappearance.
As it turned out, police had found traces of blood in the couple’s basement.
A search of a garbage disposal center later turned up bloodied items, including a hatchet and a rug.
Walshe had been researching online “how to dispose of a 115-pound body,” and according to prosecutors, he had also been seen loitering around a dumpster next to his mother’s house.
Ana, 39, enjoyed life as a busy working mom, dividing her time between Cohasset, Massachusetts and Washington DC, where she worked for a real estate company
Long before his wife disappeared, he was arrested on suspicion of stealing two fake Andy Warhol paintings and attempting to sell them.
Family friends described him as a “sociopath” who turned on his ailing elderly father in a desperate grab for his wealth.
After the murder charges against her husband broke last night, friends began paying tribute to the feisty mother-of-three.
Abdulla Almutairi, her colleague and best friend, said: “You will always be my best friend and family.
‘Rest, the sky is much brighter; be the sunshine and moonlight you always are.’
