2 women found dead in Grand County were shot



Grand County, Utah — According to officials from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office, gunshot wounds are the cause of death for the two women who were found dead Wednesday in the South Mesa area of the La Sal Loop Road in Grand County.

Two victims are identified as 38-year old Crystal Michelle Turner and 24-year-old Kylen Carrol Schulte.

“At this time the Grand County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an ongoing homicide investigation,” a press release from officials reads. “We are currently following up with any and all leads that come to our attention during this investigation and will continue to be available to people who come forward with information. The Grand County Sheriff’s Office believes there is no current danger to the public in the Grand County area.”

A Gofundme has been set up to help with funeral expenses for the women.

“Kylen’s heart has always been full of love and life and God,” Schulte’s family wrote on Gofundme. “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.”
