  • Massachusetts fraudster Brian Walshe was ordered held without bail in the disappearance of his wife Wednesday, as prosecutors revealed he used his son’s iPad to make disturbing Google searches including “how to stop a body from decomposing” and “how long before a body starts to smell.”
  • Walshe, 47, appeared stone-faced and at one point shook his head as he was arraigned in Quincy District Court on charges of murder and tampering with a body without proper authority stemming from the disappearance of his wife, Ana Walshe.
  • Assistant District Attorney Lynn Beland on Wednesday laid out Brian’s sketchy behavior in the days after he claimed Ana vanished in the early hours of New Year’s Day, when the mom of three allegedly left their Cohasset home for a “work emergency.”
