On January 4, 2023, real estate executive and mother of three, Ana Walshe, was reported missing by her employer and, separately, by her husband, Brian Walshe. She was last seen early on January 1, having had dinner with Brian and a friend of his on New Year's Eve. After an initial arrest on January 8 for misleading investigators, Brian was charged on January 18 with murder and disinterring a body without authority, to which he pleaded not guilty; prosecutors allege that he beat her to death and dismembered and disposed of her body.

Chris & Fatima discuss the strengths and weaknesses in the case against Brian Walshe, and ask Dr. Katherine Ramsland, a Professor in Forensic Psychology, about signs of a dangerous relationship.
