Ana Walshe, 39, the Massachusetts real estate manager and mom-of-three who vanished on New Year’s Day had accumulated a $2.8 million property empire at the time of her disappearance.

The findings follow the shock revelation her husband, Brian Walshe, 47, who is charged with his wife’s murder, had Googled ‘how long for someone to be missing to inherit’ after she vanished – just one of an extensive and disturbing list of internet searches revealed this week.

Despite the evidence presented, Brian has pleaded not guilty to the accusation he killed his wife in the basement of their home in Cohasset, Massachusetts, on January 1, before discarding her body in a dumpster.

Although the couple were said to have collected homes and rentals together, the New York Post reported that records tell a different story – the eight locations in Ana’s name only.

Ana Walshe, 39, the Massachusetts real estate manager and mom-of-three who vanished on New Year’s Day is revealed to have accumulated a $2.8 million property empire at the time of her disappearance

The 39-year-old is seen to be associated with real estate in Washington, DC, Maryland and Massachusetts, since 2018 – buying four and selling four others – just before she disappeared, with its market value totally $2.8 million altogether.

Less than a week before Ana’s employer reported her missing, the 39-year-old closed a deal on Dec 29 on an apartment in Revere, MA, just outside of Boston which she sold for $220,000, more than $80,000 higher than she had bought it for in 2020.

Mike and Mandi Silva, who had been living at the property told the outlet that they had felt ‘hurried out of the property’ and that they had not been ‘properly informed’ about it being sold despite having lived and rented it for four years.

They said Ana ‘wore the pants in the family,’ while Brian ‘presented himself as an investor’ but ‘would have a robe on in his house the whole time.’

In March, Ana sold a million-dollar house that she owned in Massachusetts and bought a house in DC within a similar price range.

Selling her home in Cohasset for $1.385 million, where she had been living with her husband and children at the time she had vanished, she used the cashflow to buy the $1.3 million mansion in the heart of Chevy Chase.

The mansion boasts four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and a newly renovated kitchen. The New York Post reported that she co-owns this home with an investor other than her husband.

It comes as her husband, Brian Walshe, 47, who is charged with the murder of his wife, was discovered to have Googled 'how long for someone to be missing to inherit' – which made part of an extensive and disturbing list of searches revealed this week

Despite the litany of evidence being presented against the 47-year-old, Brian has pleaded not guilty to the accusation that he murdered his wife in the basement of their Cohasset, MA, home on January 1, before discarding her body in a dumpster

The home she is believed to have been murdered in, was purchased in 2020 for $800,000 and boasts five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The family also purchased a Baltimore house in September for $191,500.

In 2020, the budding real estate mogul sold a house in Marblehead, just north of Boston, for $840,100 which she bought in 2018 for $510,000. The outlet reports that the money made on this sale went toward the home in Cohasset.

Two investment properties were bought in Lynn, MA, which she bought in 2018 costing $135,000 and $139,000 respectively.

Though mystery shrouds her disappearance, aspects of Ana’s life have been uncovered throughout the investigation – that has shocked her community and loved one’s.

Ana, who had three sons with Brian all under the age of six, was the family’s main breadwinner and would split her time between Washington D.C. and Massachusetts, often posting her commute to social media.

Meanwhile, Brian, had been under house arrest after he pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges in 2021 for selling fake Andy Warhol paintings for $80,000 on eBay.

Brian had also been accused by friends of his late father of stealing from his estate, but he maintains he and his son were the only ‘rightful heirs to his will’ the New York Post reported.

It remains unclear what will happen to the small empire of properties amid the unfolding case.

In court facing murder charges on Wednesday, prosecutors painted a disturbing portrait of Brian, explaining how he had initially looked up divorcing his wife.

‘Rather than divorce, it is believed that Brian Walshe dismembered Ana Walshe and discarded her body,’ Assistant District Attorney Lynn Beland charged during the hearing.
