MOAB, Utah — The Grand County Sheriff’s office has identified a suspect in the 2021 double homicide of Kylen Schulte and Crystal Turner near Moab.
What we know about the suspect
Adam Pinkusiewicz was reportedly a former employee at the same McDonald’s, where one of the victims, Turner, worked.
In a statement, Grand County Sheriff Steven White said Pinkusiewicz was one of many persons of interest who were being investigated by officials.
