Newlywed Couple Found Dead at Utah Campsite After Reporting ‘Creepy’ Man
There are no suspects — but the Sheriff claims there is no danger.
A newlywed couple were found dead at a Utah campground just days after reporting a “creepy man.”
The bodies Kylen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Turner, 38, were discovered on Wednesday near their campsite in the La Sal Mountains by their friend, who had set out in search of them when they failed to show up for work.
The couple, who tied the knot just four months ago, had converted their van into a camper, and loved to document their travels on Instagram.
Schulte’s aunt has said the couple told friends a “creepy guy” near their campsite made them uncomfortable before their deaths.
Schulte, 24, previously lived in Billings, Montana, while Turner, 38, was a native of Hot Springs, Arkansas. The two were married in April.
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office called in the FBI and State Bureau of Investigation to assist in the double murder investigation.
Calvert said her brother — Kylen’s dad — was forced to break the devastating news to the family.
“Then he sent a text and said, ‘It’s Kylen and Crystal, and they’re with Mac now,’ my nephew,” she said.
According to a GoFundMe set up to help the families, Kylen’s little brother Mackeon “was lost to negligent gun ownership when he was shot and killed by a friend in 2015 at the age of 15.”
The Sheriff’s declaration that there was no ongoing danger to the public did little to quell fears; their Facebook page is filled with comments from community members demanding clarification, many of whom said they were afraid to go out — Calvert included.
“What is very uncomforting is that there 100 percent is a murderer on the loose,” she said.
However authorities have yet to elaborate any further, citing the ongoing investigation.
