Ashley Turton, a former senior aide to Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), was intoxicated when she died in an accident last month, according to an autopsy report.
Turton, who was working as an energy lobbyist at the time of the accident, died from the inhalation of products of combustion and thermal burns, according to Beverly Fields of the D.C. Chief Medical Examiners office. Acute alcohol intoxication was a contributing factor in her death, Fields said.
Turton was found dead inside of her burned SUV, which apparently caught fire in the early morning hours inside of her garage on Capitol Hill. Turton was married to Dan Turton, the White House liaison to the House of Representatives.

Was she drinking corn-based alcohol like our cars are forced to consume?
Drunk at 5:00 AM?
she was murdered...this is a big coverup.......s
It could have been after a night of partying rather than starting early, or it could have been suicide and she got really drunk so that she could make herself go out and sit in a running car in a garage.
... it could have happened that way ...
The bars close at 4 where I live. Usually still at the diner at 5. Not sober.
Back when I worked 12 hour afternoon shifts I didn’t even start drinking till 5AM
Well there you go——I learn something every day.
Cheers! Skoal! Prosit! Bottoms up!
That would keep anybody drunk 24-7.
Did you know Vince Foster was intoxicated when he shot himself and then drove himself to Fort Marcy Park so he could take a hike????? Didn’t know that, did you????????
This entire thing is strange.
I feel so sorry for the little ones.
Hey, I remember you you lousy drunk!
That's a different sort of "anti-freeze".
The questions to ask now is, with whom, where and when this acute alcohol intoxication took place at.
Yep. Buy beer on the way to work and start drinking on the way home.
What did you wait all day?
They frowned on that sort of thing in the shop.
The filthy bastids.
Her entire company was most likely up drinking all night, considering the following day’s events.
However, this timing of her ‘passing out’ or being ‘knocked out’ from the collision are a bit hard to swallow.
Pinging a few folks from the last thread on this about the anti-freeze and headlights. Now the autopsy is in.
