(November 6, 2019) — Mexican police have arrested the suspect in the killing of RVers James and Michelle Butler. Adam Curtis Williams, 33, was arrested today, (Nov. 6) in Jalisco, Mexico, a western Mexican state fringing the Pacific Ocean. He is believed to have fled to Mexico along with Amanda Noverr on October 21 at Eagle Pass. It’s not clear if Noverr was also detained.
Williams is accused of stealing a truck and trailer belonging to the Butlers, of New Hampshire who were found buried in a shallow grave last week on Padre Island. He has a long history of crime and convictions in Utah. He was released last December from federal prison on a supervised release.

Utah court records show that Williams was charged in September with single counts of object rape, a first-degree felony; forcible sodomy, a first-degree felony; and forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony. He was scheduled to appear in Logan, Utah’s 1st District Court on Monday, but did not show up, according to court records. A warrant has been issued for his arrest in connection with the missed court appearance.
Williams is also wanted for failing to appear in court in connection with a case where he was charged with three felonies including aggravated assault and assault by prisoner. Court records show that he did not appear at an Oct. 8 hearing in Logan, causing a bench warrant to be issued.
