A Utah couple was found shot to death at a remote campsite just days after telling friends they planned to move on because of a “weirdo” who had been “creeping them out.”
Kylen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Turner, 38, were found dead last Wednesday in Utah’s La Sal Mountains, their home since getting married four months ago, Fox 13 reported.
The pair were reported missing the weekend before when they failed to show up at their jobs in nearby Moab for two consecutive days.
A worried friend who was trying to track down the couple came across one of their bodies close to their van-turned-camper in the South Mesa area before calling police.
Deputies from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office arrived to find the other body nearby.
The deaths are being treated as homicides, authorities said.
Investigators said the fatal shootings appeared to be an isolated incident, although a suspect is yet to be identified.
Schulte’s aunt, Bridget Calvert, told Fox 13 that the two women had recently expressed concerns about a man acting weirdly near their camping spot.
“They said they were going to go move, they were going to go pack up and move their campsite — that he was still creeping them out,” Calvert said, recalling the couple’s exchange with their close friends.
