Some folks thought the two crimes could be connected, seeing as Kylen and Crystal’s bodies were found on August 18 in Moab, Utah, a location that Gabby Petito and Brain Laundrie got into a fight, which led to Gabby being detained by police on August 12. The married couple were last seen just five days before their bodies were found.
In January 2022, the Grand County Sheriff’s Office released a statement revealing Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie had nothing to do with the murder of Schulte and Turner.
