MOAB, Utah — The Grand County Sheriff’s office asks for help from the public to solve a double murder that happened sometime last week

The bodies of newlyweds, Kylen Carrol Schulte, 24, and Crystal Michelle Turner, 38, were found Thursday, August 18. The couple had been missing several days and police were alerted when one of the women did not report to work after a camping trip in Moab. 

The medical examiner determined the deaths were not the result of a murder-suicide. The case is being treated as a double homicide committed by a third person. 

Still no suspect

The last anyone heard from the couple, they were moving campsites to avoid a nearby camper who made them feel uncomfortable. To date, the Grand County Sheriff’s office has not identified that camper or any other person of interest. 

“This case is still in preliminary stages,” said Captain Shan Hackwell. “Detectives are following up on leads. A suspect has not been identified at this time.”

For that reason, the agency is stepping up its presence in Moab to ensure public safety. 

“We’ve increased patrols on the mountain,” Grand County Sheriff Steven White explained. “We’re doing everything we can.” 

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Grand County Sheriff’s office at (435) 259-8115.
