Airman 1st Class Ashley Turner was stationed at Naval Air Station Keflavik in Iceland in 2005 when she was savagely murdered near her dorm room. Her parents learned through an Iceland paper posted on the Internet that their daughter had been murdered, after military investigators simply stated that Ashley had died of trauma to the head and neck.
20-year old Ashley had been stabbed in the head and neck, but this seemed to be the only straightforward information about her murder. There were several incorrect death certificates issued, no forthcoming assistance on death benefits and a lack of critical information from the military.
Eventually it was revealed that Ashley was to testify against a man accused of stealing from her. She was forced to live in the same dorm as this man. Airman Calvin Eugene Hill was charged with Ashley’s murder but acquitted in 2007. He did however plead guilty to stealing from her and was to face punishment for it. This, however, means that Ashley’s killer is still roaming free somewhere out there.
