A search of property records reveals that Ana Walshe had a valuable portfolio of real estate and that she sold a property shortly before she disappeared.

Walshe owned at least four residential properties, according to publicly available property appraisal records and tax records in Massachusetts, Maryland and Washington, DC, where she worked for a real estate company. Her husband, Brian Walshe, is not listed as the owner or co-owner of any of the properties.

Those properties include two apartments in Lynn, Massachusetts, a townhouse in Baltimore and a 2,500-square-foot home in DC.

At the time of her disappearance, Ana Walshe, whose husband is charged with her murder and is in jail without bail, had a real estate portfolio worth nearly $2 million, according to CNN’s analysis of publicly available documents.

Ana Walshe has sold at least two properties since March 2022, including one days before her disappearance.

In March, he sold a house in Cohasset, Massachusetts, for almost $1.4 million and bought a house in DC for $1.3 million.

Since 2018, he has sold at least four properties worth more than $2.7 million and had at least four remaining with an estimated value of $1.88 million.

The Cohasset home where she lived with her husband and three children was rented, according to the Cohasset Assessor’s Office.

Property records examined by CNN include both her married name and the name she used before she married Brian Walshe, Ana Knipp, but they may not be a comprehensive picture of her real estate holdings.

Prosecutors have been taking a close look at Google searches they say Brian Walshe did in the days before and after he allegedly killed his wife, dismembered her body and disposed of her remains in dumpsters in suburban Boston. .

Prosecutor Lynn Beland read aloud the disturbing records in court Wednesday when Brian Walshe, 47, was charged with murder and unauthorized disinterment of a body. He had previously been accused of misleading investigators investigating the disappearance of his wife. He pleaded not guilty to all charges and his defense attorney suggested that the evidence against him was not strong.

In particular, the searches turned up prosecutors Brian Walshe’s focus on the dismemberment and disposal of a body, as well as some insight into his motive, including a search on divorce and another on inheritance, defense attorney Misty Marris told CNN.

“The story is really coming together, and those Google searches were essential in putting the pieces together,” he said.
