MOAB — Investigators are getting more digital evidence in the killings of two women near Moab earlier this year. They're hoping data from a nearby cellphone tower can help them pinpoint who else was at the scene.

The bodies of Crystal Turner and her wife, Kylen Schulte, were found at a campsite near the La Sal Loop Road near Moab. Both of them were partially disrobed with multiple gunshot wounds to their backs, sides and chests. While investigators were on the scene, they called 911 to pinpoint the nearest cellphone tower. And investigators say it's a tower operated by Verizon in the Jimmy Keen Flats

Search warrants for digital evidence

A newly released search warrant show investigators asked for a "tower dump" of information of all cellphones that were connected within the crime scene area between 9 p.m. on Aug. 13 and 9 a.m. on Aug. 15. Former prosecutor Greg Skordas, who is not connected to the case, says the public shouldn't expect investigators to divulge what they found for a while.

"What they found, so far, would be privileged or confidential until they're ready to file charges or do something with their case," Skordas said.
