136. The many victims of Brian Walshe

You may have heard the Brian Walshe — arrested Jan. 17 on charges her murdered his missing wife, Ana — was once convicted of fraud “for selling two fake Andy Warhol paintings for $80,000.” That’s like saying the Titanic took on a little water. Walshe’s Warhol fraud was a long con that spanned five years, had multiple victims, involved several pieces of art both real and forged, and cost those he ripped off more than half a million dollars. That the FBI knows of. And that’s just part of the story. When Ana Walshe disappeared, Brian Walshe’s house of con and fraud cards had been toppling for years. Think you know the story? Think again.
