Because the preliminary reviews, we’ve discovered piece by piece new bits of details about their street journey gone fallacious.
For example, on August 12 the couple had been truly confronted by police after eyewitnesses reported seeing a bodily altercation between the 2. In the end the couple had been quickly separated to chill off; cops wrote it off as a “psychological well being disaster.”
The following day, August 13, was the final time newlyweds Crystal Turner and Kylen Schulte had been seen alive earlier than being discovered partially clothed and useless of a number of gunshot wounds. That thriller intersects with this one as Gabby and Brian’s battle was apparently outdoors the meals co-op the place Schulte labored. Two unsolved instances in such shut proximity? May very well be a coincidence, however police haven’t but dominated out that they may very well be linked.
