MOAB, Utah (AP) – Newlyweds living in the tourist town of Utah, near the camp site where they were recently shot, say they are confused and worried by the police investigation.

Crystal Turner and Kyle Schulte died last week at a camp site near Moab, the desert city where they lived, attracting visitors from all over the world to its vast red-rock views.

Investigators believe someone killed the women and fled the area. KUTV reported. So far no guns have been recovered.

“We think this is an outdoor party,” Grand County Sheriff Steven White said.

The sheriff’s office said there was no danger to the public. But locals are now answering tense questions about being lonely.

Friend Cindy Sue Hunter said, “Until they give us more than that, we’re not safe.” He said he went to the camp because they did not return as planned earlier this month, and he called the police.

Schultz’s aunt, Bridget Calvert, previously told the couple that their “creepy boy” had caused a lot of trouble in the days before they died.

Schulde, 24, of Billings, Montana. Calvert said his brother died in an accidental shooting in 2015. At midnight the boy was accidentally shot by a startled friend while throwing pebbles at the window.

Kyle Schulte recently fell in love with and married 38-year-old Turner from Hot Springs, Arkansas. The two were commemorated with flowers and candles on Sunday at the Moonflower Community Fellowship in Moab. Hunter said the pair are beautiful inside and out.

“We had immediate contact,” he said. “They are very special.”
