Everything you need to know about the murders of Kylen Schulte and Crystal Turner, which have been linked to Gabby Petito.


MOAB, UTAH: Authorities in eastern Utah say they’re “not ruling anything out” in the case of missing Gabby Petito and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, who were last seen in Moab only a day before Kylen ‘Ky’ Carrol Schulte, 24, and Crystal Michelle Turner, 38. According to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office, their bodies were discovered near the South Mesa area of La Sal Loop Road in Grand County on August 18. Schulte and Turner were partially undressed, their bodies covered in gunshot wounds.

On August 12, Moab Police were dispatched to a “domestic incident” between Petito and Laundrie outside the Moonflower Co-op after receiving a 911 call. Kylen Schulte and Crystal Turner were last seen at a bar in Moab the next day, on Friday, August 13. Many people believe Petito’s mysterious disappearance is connected to the double murder of a married lesbian couple. However, no solid evidence hаs yet been found to bаck up thаt theory.

  1. So this is most likely a sex crime perpetrated by a “creepy” man who had been watching them for days. Violence against women is still a big problem, though many misogynists will tell you it’s not. These women were trying to enjoy their honeymoon and were murdered either because a man couldn’t handle women who aren’t attracted to men, or because he viewed them as sex object rather than human beings. I don’t understand how the police can say the public isn’t in danger…clearly if this man is still at large then women are in danger.
