Kylan Schulte and Crystal Turner were last seen alive on August 13 at Woody’s Tavern in Moab, Utah.
The father of a Utah woman who was shot at a mountain camp in mid-August is appealing to the public to help solve the case.
Sean-Paul Schulte told Granthshala News, “We need to get the word out … because the people who were in Moab on August 12, August 13, August 14, have left Moab and they are now all over the world.” Huh.” Digital Sunday Night.
Schulte is looking for clues in the crossroads city, a major stopping point for van lifers, RV commuters, bikers, park-goers, and other road-trippers passing through the American West.
Moab Murders: What Happened to Crystal Turner and Kylan Schulte?
He is asking anyone driving on a road called FR4651 between August 12 and 14 to check their dashcam video for any vehicles that may be southeast of Moab or in an area headed for La Sal Loop Road. Do it.
Schulte’s daughter, 24-year-old Kylan Schulte, and his 38-year-old wife Crystal Turner were last seen alive at Woody’s Tavern on Main Street in Moab before they returned to their campsite on Friday, Aug.

That night, friends said that they had received text messages from the couple expressing concern about a “creeper” camp next to them.
At one point, the couple wrote that the strange man returned to the campsite, parked beside them and was carrying more clothing and food, the elder Schulte said.
“The car is the clue and where we went to get the food and clothes is another clue,” Schulte said. “But here’s the third clue: He was so close to the girls that they actually saw what he had brought back.”
Unfortunately, the couple did not elaborate on the car.
After telling friends about the man’s return, the couple fell silent.
They both missed work a few days later – unsurprisingly – causing more concern.
“When they missed the Sunday and Monday shifts, both maids called the police and reported their disappearance,” said the elder Schulte.
Cindy Sue Hunter, an acquaintance who had met Schulte and her father in the past, was on the phone with her as she looked for the couple on August 18 on La Sal Loop Road.
She said that out of the corner of her eye, turned away from the road, she saw a bright reflection of Schulte’s silver kia at a campsite on FR4651 in the Mesa area south of La Sal Loop Road.
As she got closer, she stumbled upon the mutilated remains of Kylan Schulte, who had been shot dead and partially dismembered. She said she went into shock and barely remembered what happened next, other than listening to Schulte’s father, who told her to get in his car and walk away if the killer was still.
“Me and my girlfriend, we were both standing next to each other when Cindy told us she found the car and then found a dead body,” he said. “And he said yes, it was Kylan’s body, and I said Cindy Sue, get the hell out of there, run… hang with me and call 911.”
Hunter called officers, who also discovered Turner’s remains. Similar was the condition of his body.

The brutality of the killings shocked the hardened community, which has only about 5,000 full-time residents. But even after seven weeks, the matter remains unsolved.
Schulte said his clue booth acquired dozens of clues, which he shared with the Grand County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators had already found many of them, he said, but there was only a handful of new information.
Many of the tips pointed to the immediate area, not the drifters or other people passing by. Hunter said he believed someone targeted a gay couple in a hate crime.
Schulte also said that he did not find any information linking the murders to Florida fugitive Brian Laundry, who was reportedly seen slapping and slapping his dead fiancée Gabby Petito around the same time in Moab. Nor did the John Freeman colt, a sex offender who fled and fled a Kansas mental institution in June, hiding in state and national parks until a Utah deputy took him back last week.
After seeing how the plethora of tips on social media have led to new developments in the Petito case, Schulte said he is hoping witnesses are present with more information about what happened to his daughter.
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment.
In a statement last week, Sheriff Steven White asked anyone living in the South Mesa area between August 13 and 15 to reach investigators at (435) 259-8115.
