A couple shot dead were pictured laughing at a bar in eerie CCTV footage the night before they vanished.
Kylen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Turner, 38, were killed on August 14 in the La Sal mountain range in Utah, US, shortly after telling pals about a "creep" at their campsite.
In security footage from a bar close to the campsite, the pair appear to be happily laughing and chatting to each other and another woman before taking their seats with friends at a table.
The Daily Beast obtained and published the clip from the evening of August 13 – just hours before Schulte and Turner died.
Their bodies were not found until August 18.
Kayla Borza, a friend of the couple, told the news outlet the pair had been having a great time, having a couple of drinks at the bar.
What was concerning however was that they mentioned to her that a “creep” was staying next to them.
The couple, who were avid campers and lived in their van, had only been married for four months before their untimely deaths, The Mirror reports.

Schulte and Turner failed to turn up for work two days in a row, prompting family and friends to start searching for the couple when it became clear they had not been seen since their last night at the bar.
On August 17, Schulte's dad Sean-Paul took to social media to post an appeal about the womens’ disappearance, pleading for help to track them down.
