A D.C. fire investigator takes photos of a burned-out BMW in a garage
on the 800 block of A Street Southeast on Monday morning. 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 the car, according to a source. Roll Call.
Now this gets interesting, because Rosa DeLauro owned the house in which Rahm Emanuel lived rent-free during House sessions for five years. Word from here in Washington, DeCeit is that the place was wired for audio and video. Ashley Turton, as DeLauro's chief of staff, probably wrote the checks to pay bills on that condo and would be privy to "extra" expenses.
The 4:45am time frame is also bothersome, to me, at least. MPD states that the fire that torched the car, body and garage was from an"impact after a low-speed crash." The BMW in the photo is at a right angle pinching the passenger side of the wall of the garage and partially out giving plenty of room for the driver. How could she have been incapacitated at such a slow speed bumping into the wall that somehow caused an engulfing fire. If she was going to work at that ungodly early hour, it would be in the opposite direction of a "low-speed crash."
Unless she was just coming in at 4:45 am, justifying the "crash" theory, but then it begs the question why a married mother of 4 year old twins and a 2 year old was coming home so late and alone.
