COHASSET, MASSACHUSETTS: As evidence against Brian Walshe, missing Massachusetts mom Ana's husband, seems to suggest that he might have murdered her before dismembering her body, her friend reportedly said that the missing real estate mogul was probably trying to help him. Walshe, 47, was arraigned on January 18 after being charged with the murder of his wife.

Ana, 39, the mother of three young boys, was reportedly last seen early on January 1. She was reported missing by her employer on January 4 after she failed to appear at work in Washington, DC. However, Walshe had not reported her missing until later that day. He was initially arrested for misleading investigators who were probing Ana's disappearance.

Pamela Bardhi, who met Ana a year-and-a-half ago at the Gatsby Gala hosted by the Sky International Centre, spoke to Fox News after Walshe's arraignment, and described her as a "very positive soul." "What I do know about Ana is she's a very powerful business woman, very successful, and a very positive soul," Bardhi said when asked about why she thought Ana lived with Walshe, a known sociopath, for so long. "I can almost guarantee you, she looked at him (Brian) and was probably trying to help him or trying to see the good in him and unfortunately that's what happens with very powerful women sometimes," she added.

Describing the horrific google searches that Walshe conducted on his son's iPad, including "dismemberment and the best way to dispose of a body", as "gut-wrenching," Bardhi said that she was thinking about Ana's children "who will one day understand the truth behind what happened to their mother and the fact that they have been stripped of a mother now." "The details are really painful," she said.    

'Light among the darkness'

While expressing grief at the horrendous possibilities that might have led to Ana's disappearance, Bardhi provided some positive news while speaking to Fox News. She told that channel that through the Sky International Community, there have been a number of families who have begun the process with the state in order to take custody of all three of Ana's boys.

"Now, how long that's gonna take, we're not sure. But we know that there are families willing, ready and able to take in all three boys...It's the light among the darkness which is key right now," she said and informed that the children meant everything to Ana. "She always mentioned her boys. I mean her boys are her world, her motivation, her drive, her ambition behind all that she does," Bardhi said.
