The body of Ashley Turton, mother of three young children and wife of a key White House adviser, was found inside a burning SUV in Southeast Washington by D.C. firefighters on Monday morning.

Authorities say it appears the car caught fire inside the garage of Turton's Capitol Hill home early this morning at around 5 a.m. The fire department and the police are investigating. At this point, authorities do not know what happened. Fire spokesman Pete Piringer says it appears the car somehow became involved in a crash.

Turton was the wife of Daniel Turton, the White House's deputy director of Legislative Affairs for the U.S. House.
