“Until they can give us more than that, we are not safe,” said friend Cindy Sue Hunter. She said she called police after the women didn’t return from their campsite in early August.
Schulte’s aunt Bridget Calvert previously said the couple told friends that a “creepy guy” was making them uncomfortable in the days prior to their deaths.
Schulte, 24, was from Billings, Montana. Her brother died in an accidental shooting in 2015, Calvert has said.
Schulte had more recently fallen in love with and married Turner, a 38-year-old from Hot Springs, Arkansas. Both were remembered with flowers and candles at a vigil Sunday at Moonflower Community Cooperative in Moab. Hunter said the couple was beautiful inside and out.
“We just had an instant connection,” she said. “They were just very special people.”
