Grieving father searches for clues about murder of daughter, wife, in Utah

MOAB, Utah (KSTU) – A father searches the community for clues after his daughter and wife were murdered outside of Moab, Utah, over a month ago.

No suspect has been named in the murder of the newlyweds.

“We don’t feel safe. Moab is shouting a plea that we don’t feel safe, ”is the message Sean-Paul Schulte has heard from some local residents.

It has been about five weeks since the bodies of Kylen Schulte and Crystal Turner were found in the La Sal Mountains outside of Moab.

In the weeks that followed, Kylen Schulte’s dad, Sean-Paul, decided to try to get answers.

“All I did was just provide a place for people from the area to come and give me clues,” he said.

Every day, he sets up what he calls his clue booth in a park in Moab. From there he hopes people will come out.

“In two weeks, I probably got 30 or 35 clues, and you know, maybe four or five of them weren’t really good clues,” said Sean-Paul Schulte.

He takes the clues and calls them either to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office or to the FBI whistleblower line.

With no publicly named suspect or significant law enforcement update in recent weeks, Sean-Paul Schulte does not want this case to cool down.

“I want everyone – I want hikers, bikers, Jeepers – I want everyone to think about and check your dashcam and remember the girls went missing on August 13 and were found on August 18, so let’s focus us on the mountain during these times, ”he said.

The most recent law enforcement update arrived last week, but made no reference to anything specific about the double homicide investigation.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office, which is handling the investigation, has discredited the delay between the couple’s murder and when Gabby Petitio and Brian Laundrie were in town.

The sheriff’s office would not share how they came to this conclusion, so for now Sean-Paul Schulte is apparently leading the charge in the field and keeping people up to date on social media.

“I mean, we need some real clues that can identify a suspect, not, you know Gabby and Brian were close to us,” he said.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office said it continues to follow leads and advice.
