Ashley Turton, wife of the Obama administration’s House of Representatives liaison, Dan Turton, was found dead in a burning car Monday morning, Roll Call and other news outlets are reporting.

Fire officials said it appeared the car crashed as it was pulling in or out of the garage behind a rowhouse in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C., at about 5 a.m. Neighbors dialed 911 after spotting the fire.

Also…avoid slippery roads, small aircraft, and take extra precautions against home invasion. Invest in a bulletproof vest and automobile too.)

    Very Strange. In 2 weeks we have Ashley Turton dieing in a car fire, before that was JOHN WHEELER that was murdered an his body dumped in a dumpster. I wonder if this how the people in Germany and Russia felt when political people started dieing.
