August 20, 2005|By Gregory T. Simmons

Funeral services for a local woman found dead on a U.S. naval base in Iceland will be held next week in Frederick as authorities continue the investigation into her death.

Airman 1st Class Ashley C. Turner, 20, of Frederick, was discovered stabbed to death in a housing complex for single soldiers at a naval air station in Keflavik, Iceland, according to Web reports of Iceland Review, an English-language magazine in Reykjavik.

The Associated Press reported that Turner had returned to Iceland recently to testify against a man accused of stealing from her.

A man who answered a phone at the Turner family's home Friday said no one was available to comment.

Iceland Review also reported that a man and a woman were detained in the investigation, but the woman had been released. The detained man also was said to be the airman under investigation in connection with the thefts.

Funeral services will be Tuesday at 10 a.m. at New Life Foursquare Church, 5913 Jefferson Pike, Frederick.
