Navy CPO’s Death “was not from natural causes.”, Ex-Fiancee Arrested

The death of a Navy chief petty officer whose body was found in her Florida home in September has been ruled a homicide, leading authorities on Friday to arrest the man to whom she was engaged, reports said.

Almost three months after Andrea Washington, 37, was found dead in her home on Jacksonville’s Northside, police charged 36-year-old Danny Ray Beard with her murder, First Coast News reported.

While the cause of the death was not instantly released in September, investigators had said her death “was not from natural causes.” No suspects were originally named.

The station reported, a judge had given the Navy chief a protective order about two weeks prior to her death due to “domestic violence at her home,”.

Washington revealed she was pushed, kicked in the stomach and “had a gun pulled on her by a man she was living with” while disputing over household bills, First Coast News reported, naming the protective order filed Sept. 4.

The media outlet reported, She also filed a different police report against Beard on Sept. 2 for aggravated assault after encouragement from a friend.

Washington was booked to appear in court on the protective order against Beard just hours after she was found dead, First Coast News reported. Beard appeared in court to defend himself and the order was dropped because Washington, who was dead, did not show up.

A family friend of Washington, Phantom McClendon, told First Coast News that the mother of three was newly “pinned” as a Navy CPO.


McClendon said, “The goal of making chief is a major accomplishment and for her to make it after all these years, “and the simple fact (is) that she can’t even enjoy it.”
