COHASSET, MASS. (WHDH) - Brian Walshe’s booking photo that was taken following his arrest on a charge of misleading a police investigation is now available as investigators continue to look into the mysterious disappearance of his 39-year-old wife, who hasn’t been seen since New Year’s Day.
The booking photo was released as friends of Brian Walshe’s wife, Ana, are working to make sure his three young children are kept together as the investigation plays out.
Also Friday, a series of search warrants related to his home were ordered impounded by a judge.
Quincy District Court officials confirmed to 7NEWS on Friday that investigators returned the warrants to the clerk’s office on Friday. What was specifically recovered during searches of the Walshe’s residence remains unclear as a judge immediately impounded the warrants, blocking media access.
7NEWS sources say that as of Friday evening, with the warrants returned, officials are still awaiting lab results, including DNA results on several items of interest in the case.
Among the items are a bloody knife and blood found in the basement of the Walshe home. Prosecutors disclosed the knife and blood during the arraignment of Ana Walshe’s husband, Brian, on Monday, Jan. 9.
Brian Walshe remains behind bars after being ordered held on $500,000 cash bail on a charge of misleading a police investigation in connection with his wife’s disappearance.
The latest update comes a day after 7NEWS learned of a police incident report from Washington, D.C. in 2014 that alleges Walshe threatened to kill Ana and her friends. The case was closed after Ana refused to cooperate with investigators.
