Ashley Turton, the wife of top White House aide Daniel Turton, was found dead early Monday morning in a burned-out car behind her Capitol Hill home. Police do not suspect foul play in the incident that occurred around 5 a.m., The Washington Post reported.

"We have no evidence of any obvious malfeasance in her death at this time," homicide Capt. Michael Farish told The Post, which said the death could have resulted from a low-speed crash, a medical problem, the fire, or all three. The BMW sport utility vehicle was part way in the garage of the home when it was discovered.

The 37-year-old Turton had worked as chief of staff for Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., and was currently working as a lobbyist for Progress Energy, a North Carolina company that announced a merger with Duke Energy Monday. Her husband is a White House liaison to the House of Representatives and the couple has three children, The Post said.

District of Columbia fire department spokesman Pete Piringer said neighbors first noticed the fire and called for help. Damage to the $800,000 property was limited to the garage, The Post said.
