Kylen Schulte Wiki – Kylen Schulte Biography
Kylen Schulte and Crystal Turner, also known as Crystal Beck, were last seen Saturday when they left a tavern in Moab. The lesbian couple was found shot to death Wednesday near a camping area in Grand County, Utah.
The Sheriff’s Office said they are actively following up on leads, but nobody is in custody for killing the women on Thursday afternoon.
Schulte was 24 and Turner was 38 years old.
Kylen Schulte and Crystal Beck knew the mountains of Moab well, moving from campsite to campsite in the Utah wilderness with ease. But a week ago, reportedly after telling friends, they were spooked by a man they encountered, the married couple disappeared.
“Kylen and Crystal told close friends that a weirdo was camping near them that was freaking them out !!! And that they should move campsites,” Schulte’s father, Sean-Paul, wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday. “Now they have been missing for over four days and nights!”
As family put out the word that Schulte, 24, and Beck, 38, had vanished, a friend made a disturbing discovery on Wednesday: two women found they shot to death off a scenic road that runs through a national forest. Late Thursday, they were identified as the missing women.
Now police are hunting for a killer, and the victims’ families and friends wonder why anyone would hurt them.
“She has been the moon and the stars since that day she was born,” Kylen’s aunt, Bridget Calvert, wrote on a GoFundMe to raise money for a funeral.
“Kylen’s heart has always been full of love and life and God. She was the best sister, daughter, niece, and cousin. She was a true free spirit that lived for the joy in her heart, not the hatred in the world.”
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office has released no information about the gunman. Still, a spokesman said that evidence collected so far leads investigators to believe the shootings were an “isolated incident,” although they believe the killings were homicides.
“We do think it was an outside party,” Sheriff Steven White told KUTV. “There has not been any firearms recovered from that area at this time.”
Friends said that Schulte and Beck, who were recently married, frequently camped in the area.
