What is Tyvek suit? Ana Walshe's husband Brian's DNA found on suit, hacksaw and hatchet found in trash
QUINCY, MASSACHUSETTS: Prosecutors said during an arraignment on January 18, 2023, that Brian Walshe's DNA was found on a Tyvek suit along with several other items. A Tyvek suit is used as a barrier against dangerous fine particles and chemicals. People also use the suit during clean-up using chemicals. During the arraignment, the husband of Ana Walshe, was charged with her murder and improper transport of a body, to which he pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors said that DNA belonging to both Ana and Brian was found on the slippers and the Tyvek suit, adding that blood was found inside the trash bags. A lot more was found inside a total of 10 trash bags that were found at an apartment complex where Brian's mother lives.
A lot of evidence was recovered from inside the trash bags, including towels rags, slippers, Tyvek suit, tape, gloves, cleaning agents, a Prada purse, carpets, rugs, hunter boots, Ana's Covid card, hacksaw, hatchet, and cutting shears. In addition to these items, a necklace that belonged to Ana was also recovered in the trash, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors also allege that Brian dumped trash bags containing his wife's body and other evidence in several dumpsters, including at an apartment complex in Abington, where he was captured on surveillance but they say that the trash was already picked up and incinerated by the time police located it.
"He walks to the dumpster carrying garbage bag. He’s leaning. It appears to be heavy as he appears to heft it into the dumpster," Norfolk Assistant District Attorney Lynn Beland said.
They further revealed that the rug that Brian allegedly purchased at a Home Goods store in Norwell, Massachusetts on January 2, was partially stained with red and brown spots, which is "consistent with also having a baking soda on it."
In addition to this damning evidence, Beland also outlined a series of disturbing Google searches allegedly conducted by Brian on his son's iPad and his own cellphone in the days after Ana's disappearance that included queries about disposing of a body, dismembering a body, body decomposition, how to mask the smell of a decomposing body and how to clean up blood.
Beland pointed out that on December 27, the defendant Googled, ‘What's the best state to divorce for a man’. "Rather than divorce, it is believed Brian Walshe dismembered Ana Walshe and discard her body,” Beland said.
Prosecutors said that a bloody knife was also found in the Walshe's basement, along with a second knife. They also said that heavy-duty large tarp and plastic grinders from Home Depot were found.
Anna has been missing since New Year's day. Prosecutors said that Ana's credit card had no activity since January 1.
