On January 4th, 2023, a search for Ana Ljubičić, a 39-year-old Serbian-American mother from Cohasset, commenced for days after her co-workers at Tishman Speyer called the police to report her missing.

Ana is a mother of three sons. Working as a real-estate executive, she divided her time between Cohasset, Massachusetts, where she lived with her husband Brian, and Washington, DC, where she operated her work.

Born in 1983 in Belgrade, the capital of the former Yugoslavia. Ana studied French language and literature at the University of Belgrade, and in 2005 she emigrated to the United States to start a new life.

Ana was last seen on New Year's day, having had dinner with her husband Brian and a friend of his; According to him, his wife departed for her job in Washington at 6:30 in the morning. His defense attorney argued that he called her workplace to ask if anyone knew her whereabouts before the company reported her missing.

She planned to use a ride-hailing service to go to Logan International Airport and fly to Washington, D.C., where she often worked. But authorities said they found no proof that she entered a vehicle or boarded a plane.

Her husband Brian, already confined at home for a different crime of wire fraud, unlawful monetary transaction, and two other charges, had a history of deceitful behavior and a skill of attempting to coerce others, having been arrested in 2018 for selling two fake Andy Warhol paintings on eBay and according to a police report, he allegedly threatened to kill Anna and a friend of her back in 2014. He also misled investigators searching for his missing wife and lied about his whereabouts.

Upon combing the area, investigators discovered ten trash bags filled with suspicious items such as tape, gloves, cleaning agents, Ana's vaccination card, a hacksaw, and a hatchet.

"Search activity conducted north of Boston yesterday resulted in a number of items being collected, which will now be subject to processing and testing to determine if they are of evidentiary value to this investigation," the Norfolk DA's Office stated.

A week after being arraigned on charges of misleading investigators, Brian faced an arrest warrant for the alleged murder of his wife. On Thursday, March 30th, 2023, A Norfolk County grand jury indicted Brian Walshe for first-degree murder, obstruction of justice, and other charges.

Prosecutors allege that Walshe had assaulted and beat his wife to death because he wanted to end their marriage. They also revealed that Walshe used his son's iPad, allegedly minutes before he last saw her, searching for answers to a disturbing set of questions about decomposition, embalming, dismemberment, identification, odor eliminators, and disposal.

CNN chief law enforcement and intelligence analyst John Miller said, "He basically lays out the questions for his plan in the Google searches, as prosecutors allege."

Some of Brian Walshe's incriminating and chilling search history was disclosed by prosecutors Wednesday as he was arraigned on charges of murder. To quote a few, he asked;

"An indictment contains only allegations. It is not evidence. It will be up to the prosecution to prove those allegations beyond a reasonable doubt, which is significantly more difficult than obtaining an indictment in a grand jury proceeding where the defense does not have the right to participate or even be present. That is why defendants are presumed to be innocent under our constitution," Walshe's attorney Tracy Miner said in a statement.

According to NBC Boston, Brian Walshe is being held without bail while their three young children are still in state custody.
