    EP39 | Ana Walshe Is Still Missing, Cohasset, Massachusetts & "No Body Conviction" cases in New England

    EP39 | Ana Walshe Is Still Missing, Cohasset, Massachusetts & "No Body Conviction" cases in New England

    Ana Walshe, a 39-year-old working mother of three young boys is reported missing on January 4, 2023. But not by her husband, by her Washington, DC employer when they said she never returned to work after the New Year's holiday. A visit to her South Shore Massachusetts home in the coastal town of Cohasset sets off a string of events that leaves investigators highly suspicious of husband, Brian Walshe, and locals glued to the story. Ana was last seen in the early morning hours of January 1, 2023, after a celebratory dinner with her family and a friend. The husband's explanation of where she went, we learn pretty quickly, doesn't add up and his moves from the last time she is seen have left digital footprints that paint a very grim picture of what took place on the first day of January 2023. His criminal past takes a front seat as the story unfolds.

    Ana Walsh is still missing; her three small boys, her family, and her many friends miss her. They realize what the evidence is suggesting and it is terrifying.

    I always hold out hope that she will be found. Alive.

    Her husband is charged with her murder and she is presumed dead. Can someone be convicted without a body? I cite two New England cases where husbands were convicted in the deaths of their wives when a body was never recovered: The November 1986 murder of Helle Crafts of Newtown, Connecticut and the September 1998 murder of Katherine Leonard Romano of Quincy, Massachusetts.

    EP38 | Murdered For Her Baby: Darlene Haynes, Worcester, Massachusetts

    EP38 | Murdered For Her Baby: Darlene Haynes, Worcester, Massachusetts

    It was a case of fetal abduction, cruelty, and murder that made international news with gory headlines like "Fetus Snatcher" and "Womb Raider" in the Summer of 2009 involving two former neighbors of a Worcester, Massachusetts apartment building. One woman in her early twenties, the other in her mid-thirties, both pregnant, both struggling. Each seemed to lean on the promise of a new baby to offer a glimmer of hope in their relatively ordinary existence. Darlene Haynes was a 23-year-old mother of three, with a new baby on the way, whose innocence, trusting nature, and desire for friendship killed her. Her murderer was a another mother with a sick need so strong that she would commit a gruesome murder and steal her baby from her.  When Darlene was found dead in her apartment, it didn't take very long to figure out that the woman who'd been parading around with a premature infant and an absolutely implausible story was responsible.

    (This story includes fetal abduction, fetal death, domestic violence, child abuse, miscarriage)

    REPLAY: EP8 | The Malingerer, Wakefield, Massachusetts Mass Shooting (part two)

    REPLAY: EP8 | The Malingerer, Wakefield, Massachusetts Mass Shooting (part two)

    Part two of two. In honor of the seven people who were killed on 12/26/2000 at Edgewater Technology in Wakefield, Massachusetts. I am reposting this two-part episode about that first aired on Dec 26 + Jan 6, 2020. They were some of my earliest episodes. The Edgewater workplace rampage remains the worst mass shooting in the state's history.

    Remembering those who were killed that day after Christmas in 2000
    Jennifer Bragg Capobianco, 29, of Brighton
    Janice Hagerty, 46, of Stoneham
    Louis A. Javelle, 58, of Nashua, NH
    Rose Manfredi, 48, of Lexington
    Paul Marceau, 36, of Melrose
    Cheryl Troy, 50, of Beverly
    Craig Wood, 29, of Haverhill

    .. .. ..

    On 12/26/2000, Michael McDermott exacted his revenge on seven of his co-workers at Edgewater Technology. Perceived and twisted revenge. Equipped with a shotgun, a semi-automatic assault rifle, a semi-automatic pistol, and a bag full of ammunition, he had chatted with his workmates then unceremoniously opened fire. The attack that left all seven people dead lasted less than 10 minutes. In part two, we learn how he plotted and planned for months, how he took advantage of the mental health system, and how he faked mental illness.

    .. .. ..

    Twenty years ago, on that Tuesday, the day after Christmas in 2000, seven employees who were among half of the staff of Edgewater Technology in Wakefield, Massachusetts to come to work that day never made it home. A co-worker, armed to the teeth, showed up to the job he’d had for less than a year to exact his revenge. Perceived and twisted revenge. Equipped with a shotgun, a semi-automatic assault rifle, a semi-automatic pistol, and a bag full of ammunition, he had chatted with his workmates then unceremoniously opened fire. The attack that left all seven people dead lasted less than 10 minutes. This is part one of two.

    EP37 | Elijah Lewis, Merrimack, NH & Unsolved Cases Of The Granite State

    EP37 | Elijah Lewis, Merrimack, NH & Unsolved Cases Of The Granite State

    In October of 2021, a five year old boy was reported missing in Merrimack, New Hampshire after he hadn't been seen for over a month. Any missing child is an emergency. Or should be. Except his mother, whose custody he had been in for just over a year, wasn't who reported him missing.

    Why was Elijah Lewis even living with his mother at the time?
    And why did she want him gone? This is a difficult story about violence against a child. 

    I share information about other unsolved New Hampshire  cases:

    EP36 | Rory Gene Kesinger, Plymouth, Mass & The Missing, Unsolved, Unclaimed of Massachusetts

    EP36 | Rory Gene Kesinger, Plymouth, Mass & The Missing, Unsolved, Unclaimed of Massachusetts

    #newenglandcrimestories #massachusetts #missing #unsolved
    Rory Gene Kesinger is called many things: an outlaw, criminal mastermind, a robber and drug dealer. She is a fugitive. We don’t truly know where she is or what’s become of her. For 49 years, she has been a mystery and a story of folklore in Massachusetts. Today I begin digging into the stories of missing, unsolved and unclaimed people of New England. Massachusetts is up first with Rory, Baby Bella Bond found in Winthrop, Melanie Melanson missing from Woburn, Theresa Corley found in Bellingham, Danielle Oliverio found in Wilmington, Melanie Quadros missing in Lowell, Juan Carlos Gonzalez murdered in Worcester.

What a Great Find!

Found this podcast recently and listened to all the episodes, Angelle, great job! I love how when I start your podcast there is no blaring music, just your voice over my shoulder. You obviously do a lot of work on your episodes and you definitely care about the victims. please keep it local to New England, trust me you’ll have no shortage of interesting and enticing cases to research and produce. I will send you a few ideas for episodes. Until then, keep on keeping on.
