A bone fragment was found on a hacksaw which investigators believe was thrown into a dumpster by Brian Walshe after he allegedly killed and dismembered his wife, Ana.

Brian, 47, pleaded not guilty to first degree murder, misleading police, obstructing justice and improperly transporting a human body. He is accused of killing Ana, 39, on New Year’s Day.

His body has not yet been found. However, investigators say they have evidence that links Brian to the murder. In court documents released this week, it was revealed that they found a “small bone fragment” on the hacksaw that had been dumped near Ana’s mother’s home in Swampscott, Massachusetts.

Investigators also found Ana’s COVID-19 vaccination card and Volkswagen keys. They found clothes and jewelry she was known to wear, including a Hermès watch and Gucci necklace that Ana was known to wear, Hunter boots, a black Prada handbag and a short black coat, according to court documents.

Brian’s attorney suggested she was either killed by someone else or chose to disappear. “It has been four months since she was last seen. As Your Honor knows, a person is not presumed dead because they have been missing for seven years, because it is easy for a only person to disappear if they want to disappear.” No body was found. There is no indication if she died, how she died. There was no murder weapon. There is no pattern.

Last week, surveillance photos revealed the 47-year-old was buying cleaning supplies and throwing a rubbish bag into a dumpster in the hours after his wife Ana was murdered.

The footage was made public last week in court filings in the murder case against Brian, who prosecutors say beat Ana to death and then dismembered her in the basement of their House.

An image shows Brian wearing a face mask and pushing a shopping cart at Rockland Home Depot on Jan. 8 between 4:12 p.m. and 4:56 p.m., according to the search warrant.

The warrant revealed that he had several items in his cart, including three mops and brushes, two large clear tarps, a drop cloth, two rolls of Scotch Heavy Duty tape, a Tyvek coverall with a hooded coverall, a mop bucket with bell, three buckets with lids, two splash goggles, utility knife, two 12-pound bags of baking soda, and a hatchet.

These objects were found during a search of the house on January 8.

He was spotted an hour later at Lowe’s in Danvers, where he allegedly purchased $450 worth of tools, including a hacksaw, according to the warrant. This hacksaw was found by investigators who believe it was what he used to kill Ana.

Court documents also revealed that Ana, a mother of three, had been having an affair for several months with an unidentified man. The man told police the couple spent Thanksgiving together in Dublin.

At the time of her death, Ana had become the family’s sole breadwinner. She worked in real estate in Washington DC, while her husband stayed in Massachusetts with their three young sons.

Brian was awaiting conviction for fraud, having stolen and then passed off as a real Andy Warhol painting.

Friends say Ana was ready to leave him and broke down in tears over dinner days before he disappeared.

The new information about the case was contained in a search warrant for the home which was made public yesterday.

Police say Ana was murdered around 4 a.m. on January 1, three hours after saying goodbye to her friend and former boss with whom they celebrated the New Year.

Within hours of his death, Brian is accused of using his son’s iPad to Google ‘how to dispose of a body’ and ‘how long before a body starts to smell’ .

His lawyer acknowledged that the searches were “problematic”.

The next day, he visited several stores, including Home Depot, Lowes, and CVS, purchasing a combination of cleaning agents, plastic sheets, hazmat suits, a hatchet, and a hacksaw.

Brian was seen in the days after visiting the apartment complex dumpsters near his mother’s house.

The prosecution says Ana’s dismembered remains were in the bags, but were removed by garbage services and incinerated when police searched the dumpsters.

They discovered clothing and jewelry – including the Prada boots, Hermès watch and Gucci necklace she wore the last time she was seen alive – as well as traces of her blood and DNA.

Last week, Brian’s attorney admitted his mother had hired a private detective to follow Ana to Washington DC because she suspected she was having an affair.

She however claimed that Brian had nothing to do with it and had no reason to suspect his wife of infidelity until she disappeared.

They claimed that Ana could have “disappeared” because she wanted to.

Prosecutors also pointed to the fact that Brian stood to gain $2.7 million in life insurance payments in the event of his wife’s death as the motive.

His lawyers rejected that suggestion yesterday, saying instead he ‘didn’t need’ the money because his mother was so wealthy.

Brian is due back in court in August.
