A couple found dead on a campground were caught laughing and talking for the last time in surveillance footage from a bar the night before they disappeared.
Kaelen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Turner, 38, were shot dead in the La Salle mountain range in Utah, United States, on Wednesday.
Their deaths came shortly after the couple told their friends that they had encountered a “crawl” in one of the camps they were staying in.
Surveillance footage from the local tape, which was obtained and published by daily monster, the couple is shown laughing and talking with friends on the night of August 13, hours before their deaths.
Kayla Burza, a friend of the couple, told the news outlet that the couple had a great time, having a few drinks at the bar.
The only thing that seemed wrong was that they mentioned that the Creepers were staying next to them.
The couple, who lived in the camp and lived in their van, were married for only four months before their untimely death.

Despite reports of a suspicious figure nearby, policemen have yet to arrest anyone for his death.
Schulte and Turner failed to show up for work two days in a row, prompting family and friends to start searching for the couple when it turned out they hadn’t seen them since their last night at the bar.
On August 17, Schulte’s father, Sean Paul, took to social media to post an appeal regarding the woman’s disappearance, asking for help in tracking them down.
The bodies were found a day later, after they were found shot and killed off a scenic road that cuts through a national forest.
According to a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, investigators were treating their deaths as a murder investigation.
“We think it was an outdoor party,” Sheriff Stephen White told KUTV.
“No firearms have been found from that area at this time.”
Meanwhile, family members paid tribute to the murdered couple.
A GoFundMe page was created to help Kylen’s father, Sean-Paul Schulte, travel and bring Kylen to Billings, Montana, for a proper burial with her family.
The page, set up by Aunt Keelen, Bridget Calvert described her niece as a “beautiful soul” who was “always positive.”
“Kylin’s heart has always been full of love, life, and God,” the page continued.

She was the best sister, daughter, niece and sister. She was a true free spirit who lived for joy in her heart and not for hatred in the world.”
Bridget said the family wanted Keelen to be buried with her brother, McCune’s Daniel Schulte, who died after being shot by a friend at age 15.
Bridget said that “Kelen’s beautiful spirit” was praised by someone like Krystal.
