Loved ones are grieving the death of U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Andrea Washington as the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office works to figure out how and why she died.
Washington was found dead in a north Jacksonville home on Monday. Police say they got a call for a medical emergency, but they suspect foul play.
A friend says that Washington was a mother of three and a 19-year veteran of the U.S. Navy. She had just been pinned as a Chief Petty Officer last week.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, officers and rescue arrived to the home located in the 12500 block of Itani Way at 12:13 a.m., after receiving a "medical emergency" call.

JSO suspects something more sinister. Crime scene tape could be seen wrapped around the quiet neighborhood where Washington lived in a subdivision filled with new homes.
Action News Jax searched court records and found out that Washington had filed an injunction against a man earlier this month, stating he kicked her and pulled a gun on her.
Washington was due in court this morning.
