A Moab business contractor is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for a double homicide in the South Mesa area of the La Sal Mountains, the Grand County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday.
The business contractor, who wishes to remain anonymous, offered the sum to help solve what happened to 24-year-old Kylen Schulte and her new wife, 38-year-old Crystal Turner. The couple was living at a campsite near La Sal Loop Rd. in Moab before complaining to friends of a “creep” camping nearby.
Schulte and Turner had married in April and been living at various campgrounds in the area while working in town. They were reported missing on Aug. 16 after they did not show up for work. Schulte’s friend Cindy Sue Hunter found their bodies in South Mesa on Aug. 18. Medical examiners determined that both of the women died from gunshot wounds.
No suspect has been identified and authorities are investigating the case as a double homicide.
The women were last seen leaving Woody’s Bar between 9 and 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 13.
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office is working with the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Utah State Bureau of Investigations on the case.
Officials asked anyone with pertinent tips to refrain from sharing them on social media and to instead call the sheriff’s office directly at 435-259-8115.
