Confessed murder before he died

On Wednesday, August 18, Crystal Turner (38) and Kylen Carrol Schulte (24) were found shot dead at a campsite in Moab, eastern Utah.

The couple, who just four months earlier gave each other a yes, were traveling around different campsites in their car.

Told about a scary man

Just days before they were found dead, they had spoken to friends and told them about a man at camp they found scary, and that they wanted to change campsites because of him.

Police stated at the time that the two women had been shot several times, and that no one had been arrested in the case.

It was friends and colleagues who alerted the police when neither Turner nor Schulte showed up for work.

Must have worked together

The deceased worked at the same McDonald’s restaurant as 38-year-old Crystal Turner.

According to police, he was in Moab at the time of the murder, and they had previously tried to track down the man – before they were told he had died.

Police stated that the case had not been closed, and asked anyone who might have information about the man – or his vehicle – to contact.
