Ashley Turton Dies in Car Fire

Ashley Turton Dies in Car Fire - Our beloved Ashley Turton and Former Hill Staffer dies in car fire. Ashley Turton, former chief of staff to Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and wife of White House liaison to the House of Representatives Dan Turton, was found dead in her car Monday morning, according to a source.

Turton worked as a lobbyist for the Raleigh, N.C.-based utility giant Progress Energy. 
According to the D.C. Fire and Metropolitan Police departments, Turton’s car was discovered ablaze in a row house garage, presumably the Turton home, in the 800 block of A Street Southeast near Eastern Market. 
Metropolitan Police Lt. Nicholas Breul said there is a joint investigation into the cause of the accident. Homicide detectives have been called to the scene.
“This could be just a tragic freak accident,” Breul said. “And that’s why we’re crossing our t’s and dotting our i’s, because it is a little freaky, and we need to figure out why. But there is no indication now that there was any crime.”
