Ashley Turton (November 25, 1973 – January 10, 2010) was a lobbyist for Progress Energy who was reportedly "likely involved with" the company's merger with Duke Energy.[1] She had been Special Assistant to Speaker of the House[2] Nancy Pelosi, chief of staff for Connecticut representative Rosa DeLauro and before that, aide to Missouri representative Dick Gephardt.[3] She was married to Dan Turton, the Obama administration's liaison to the House of Representatives.[4] They had three children.
On the morning of January 10, 2011 she had planned to drive to the airport for an air trip related to her work. Instead, a neighbor telephoned at 4:49 a.m. to report Turton's garage was on fire.[1] Inside the garage, firefighters discovered her body in her 2008 BMW X5 SUV.[5] Her death was investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department with assistance from the city fire department, two BMW engineers, and the ATF.[6] The coroner's report found "acute alcohol intoxication" and said she died from "inhalation of products of combustion and thermal burns".[4] According to authorities, there was no indication of foul play and there were "no obvious signs of trauma".[7]
