    Default Wife of White House Adviser Found Dead in Burning Car

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/cri...wife-of-a.html

    WASHINGTON -- Homicide investigators were called to the scene Monday of a burning car that contained the body of the wife of a White House adviser.

    Ashley Turton, a Washington lobbyist who was a former chief of staff to Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., and the wife of White House congressional liaison Dan Turton, was found inside the car located in southeast Washington.

    Property records show the Turtons lived at the southeast Washington home where D.C. firefighters found the body.

    D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says firefighters were called to a rowhouse and found a car engulfed in flames.

    Turton was a lobbyist for Progress Energy Inc. Mike Hughes, a spokesman for the Raleigh, N.C.-based company, says co-workers are devastated to hear of Turton's death. He says Turton was the mother of three young children.

    Turton joined the company in 2007 after serving as chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro.

    Wow...Yeah, people don't just end-up in a burning car. With that said, I'm sure the final report will call it a "horrible accident" of some kind.

    I would not be surprised in the least if that's what is said.

    Back when I lived in the area, Southeast DC was known as a part of town to stay away from. I imagine being in the positions this couple are in, they have some money, so the area they are in must not be that bad. I'm guessing probably a robbery/car jacking.

    For the most part, there is never any reason to go to Southeast DC. Crime rates are still high.
    There has been an effort to revitalize the area with the "Eastern Market" district, the Washington Nationals baseball stadium, etc...
    The only time I ever go to Southeast DC is to link up with the DC Metro at the Anacostia station.

    Carjacking or robbery? Because she shouldn't be in that part of town??
    She was found burning in her own garage folks.



    Sorta weird just days after former Pentagon spokesperson and Presidential Aide John Wheeler was also killed and whose body turned up in a landfill.



    Ashley Turton was found dead in the pre-dawn hours inside a burning car at her Capitol Hill home.

    It will be portrayed as some right wing wacko targeting politicians. Or, like in the Clinton years just an untimely death.

    I don't think you read my post well enough. I knew she lived there, but I also mentioned that was a part of town that was to be avoided when I lived in the area. And yes, people do get carjacked and robbed in their own driveways or in front of their own houses. They also get robbed/carjacked in nice neighbourhoods. The original story said nothing about the car being in her garage, and living in the city, one wouldn't assume that she would have one...

    Maybe she passed out for some reason and dropped a cigarette.

    Yeah that story wasn't altogether clear.

    But in the predawn hours her body left burning in her car in her garage. Sounds like maybe first degree murder to me. Possibly killed in her home in the middle of the night then her body put in the car in the garage and set a blaze. Something tells me that she was already dead before getting behind the wheel.

    We don't know. But there seems to be something more to this than some random act of violence.

    I'm thinking either something like that - she was killed and then burned in the car to try to cover it up, or she tried to kill herself by carbon monoxide and in the process the car caught fire (don't know if that's known to happen when people do that).

    I wouldn't be shocked if she was killed for political reasons, I hate to say it.

    Not that I have any information or anything like that, but after learning that our government actually drafted a plan to kill American citizens and make it look like Cuba did it, my trust level is a little low (along with another couple hundred contributing factors).

    That being said, you do not go into Southeast DC. Period. I was in SE DC one night a few years ago, and I was one paranoid white boy.
