On Wednesday, August 18, the couple Crystal Turner (38) and Kylen Carrol Schulte (24) were found shot and killed at a campsite in Moab, eastern Utah.
The couple, who only four months earlier had given each other their yes, were traveling around different campsites with their car.
Told about scary man
Only days before they were found killed, they had talked to friends and told about a man on the campsite who they perceived as scary, and that they wanted to change campsite because of him.
The police stated at the time that both 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.
On Wednesday this week, a dead man was suspected of the nine-month-old double murder.
– Before he committed suicide, he told another party that he had killed two women in Utah, it says in a statement from the police dated May 11, according to the local newspaper Moab Sun News.
The suspected man is said to have given detailed descriptions of the crime that have never been made known to the public.
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 killings, and they have previously tried to track down the man – before they were made aware that he had passed away.
The police state that the case has not been closed, and ask anyone who may have information about the man – or his vehicle – to get in touch.
