Gabby Petito: Utah sheriff says missing woman case 'not related' to double murder

Authorities in Utah have ruled out a connection between the double homicide of two newlyweds at a campground outside Moab last month and the recent disappearance of 22-year-old Gabby Petito. 

In an ongoing effort to find Petito, who vanished after going on a cross-country trip with her boyfriend in a converted camper van, authorities have been "actively looking into any connection" between the two cases.

"It has been determined that the Gabby Petito missing person case is not related to the double-homicide case involving Crystal Turner and Kylen Schulte," wrote the Grand County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook Friday. 

The newlyweds, 38-year-old Crystal Turner and 24-year-old Kylen Schulte, were found shot to death at a campground southeast of Moab on Aug. 18, five days after they were last seen leaving a downtown bar.
