Utah father asks to keep attention on solving daughter, daughter-in-law’s murder

MOAB, Utah — A Utah father is pleading to keep the unsolved murder of his daughter and daughter-in-law in the limelight.

Sean-Paul Schulte said it’s hard not to compare the kind of attention Gabby Petito’s disappearance got, compared to that of his daughter, Kylen Schulte, and her wife, Crystal Turner.

He asked people to remember that their killer is still out there.

For the past three weeks, Schulte has been at a sentimental spot at Swanny City Park.

It’s a spot where I would sit and wait for the girls,” said Schulte. “They’d come around the corner on the Harley and come rolling up.”

He’s maintained a booth there for collecting tips from the community.

“These clues are time-sensitive, and now, so much time has gone by,” he said.

While Petito’s case grabbed so much more attention, he doesn’t begrudge it. He just believes other cases, like his daughter’s, need that same attention.

“I know what it’s like to have someone missing, and I know what it’s like to not have closure yet, so I really feel for Gabby’s family,” said Schulte.

As hard as it may be several weeks later, he’s asking people who have passed through the Moab area between Aug. 13 through Aug. 18 to consider what they might have seen in the area near La Sal Loop Road, where the two women were shot and killed.

“If anybody saw anything there — a vehicle, a description of a person, a person with a dog, a weirdo with a gun, whatever it is,” he said.

Schulte said dozens of people have brought him clues, and through his time in town, he’s seen how much Kylen and Crystal were loved.

“The town cherished those girls,” he said.

Officials with the Grand County Sheriff’s Office said they continue to follow leads, adding that they’ve called on numerous labs and technicians to comb over troves of potential evidence that could still take months to complete.
