"Wow! 2022 … What a year! And yet, we are still here and together!" Ana wrote on the side of a box of champagne left in her dining room. "Let’s make 2023 the best one yet! We are the authors of our lives … courage, love, perseverance, compassion, and joy. Love, Ana."

Gem allegedly left the Walshe home around 1:30 a.m., and noted that Brian told him that Ana woke him hours later in the early morning because she had a "work emergency" in Washington, D.C., and needed to immediately go to the airport. That was said to be the last time that Brian saw her.

Photos taken in the couple's home after Ana's disappearance revealed two passports sitting on the counter. Three bottles of $3,000 A.H. Hirsch Reserve Whiskey appeared to be leftover from the party as well.

Aside from photo evidence in the Walshe house, police also discovered there were no records that Ana had taken a car service or even been on a flight on New Year's Day, and her cell phone still pinged cell towers in the immediate area for up to 48 hours after she reportedly left the house.

On Sunday, January 8, Brian was arrested for allegedly misleading authorities on where he had been the day of and the day following her disappearance. Police later searched their home and found remnants of blood and a broken knife in their basement, per an affidavit from the husband's arrest.

Brian is currently being held on $500,000 bond but no further charges beyond "misleading investigators" have been filed.

New York Post obtained the photos taken inside of the Walshe home.
