In the early morning hours of January 1, the hour before he told investigators that his wife had left their home to catch a flight to Washington, D.C., he did the following Google searches on his son’s iPad: “How long before a body begins to decompose, How to prevent a body From decomposition, how to tie up the corpse, 10 ways to get rid of the corpse if you really need to, how long should the missing person inherit, can you get rid of the body parts?”
Google searches also included: “The dismemberment and the best ways to dispose of the body, how to clean blood from the wooden floor, what happens when you put body parts in ammonia, and is it better to dispose of or wash crime scene clothes?”--

That same day, he bought three rugs at a store and also bought cleaning products, mops, brushes, tape, a tarp—.(.) buckets, goggles, baking soda, and an axe.
On January 3, surveillance video captured Walsh traveling to dump his load into a dumpster, where he is seen carrying and discarding items that appeared heavy. He then traveled to an apartment complex in Upington and another in Brockton, about 4 miles west of Upington, where he dumped more items.
Prosecutors said in court that police later tried to trace the bags which were seen being put into the first dumpster in Abington, but were actually destroyed after they were picked up and taken away for shredding and burning.
