Two women were found shot and killed in the Utah wilderness after being ‘spooked’ by a man near their campsite then disappearing for four days.
Married couple Kylen Schulte and Crystal Beck were camping in the mountains of Moab, Utah, about a week ago when they reportedly vanished.
Two bodies were discovered Wednesday night near the South Mesa area of La Sal Loop Road and police identified them as the missing women Thursday evening. The bodies were transferred to the state medical examiner’s office.

The couple were reportedly ‘spooked’ by a man near their campsite and told close friends they were moving away from the ‘weirdo’
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office believes it was a murder and is now looking for the killer.
The two reportedly were last seen on August 14 after telling close friends they moved campsites because they had been ‘spooked’ by a ‘weirdo’ man camping near them.
Schulte’s father Sean-Paul called for the Moab community to help find ‘my girls’ on August 17 in a Facebook post after not hearing from them.
He reported that the girls, ‘Haven’t been to work. Haven’t called. Not in hospital. Not in Moab jail,’ but police were searching for them.
Schulte’s father Sean-Paul asked the people of Moab to help find his daughter’s killers on Facebook as the police’s person of interest has been released and no arrests have been made
Aunt Bridgit Calvert started a GoFuneMe page to help Sean-Paul pay for funeral expenses for the two girls
Sean-Paul posted again a day later reporting the girls had been missing for four nights and days.
He said: ‘Moab PLEASE PLEASE FIND MY GIRLS.’
In an updated post, he begs Moab not to give up on finding his daughter’s killer and asked them to interview everyone who was on the mountain.
Their bodies were found near the South Mesa area of La Sal Loop Road after being missing for four days
He wrote: ‘Moab. This is Kylen and Crystals dad. Please please
‘DO NOT STOP !!!!’
The sheriff’s office released a statement saying they are looking into all avenues provided by those who come forward.
‘We are currently following up with what comes to our attention during this investigation and will continue to be available to people to come forward with information,’ the sheriff’s office told local NBC-affiliated television station KSL-TV.
The father reported that a person of interest had been questioned and released by police, but his daughter’s killer was still out there.
The family called Schulte the ‘moon and the stars since the day she was born’ on the GoFundMe page created to help Sean-Paul pay funeral expenses for the two women.
The couple – who was recently married – spent a lot of time camping.
Their aunt wrote on the GoFundMe page, ‘They found their way from the best campsite to the next.’
