New developments in slayings of Texas RVers


By Russ and Tiña De Maris

A grand jury in Kleberg County, Texas, has handed down new indictments against the suspects in the murder of RVers James and Michelle Butler. The Butlers were found last October, buried in a shallow grave on Padre Island, their RV and tow vehicle vanished.

Suspects Adam Williams and his girlfriend, Amanda Noverr, were later tracked down and arrested and remain in jail in separate facilities in Texas. On Wednesday, October 29, a Kleberg County Grand Jury passed down new charges of tampering with physical evidence and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

On Wednesday, new charges were brought against Williams and Noverr, including tampering with physical evidence and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. The firearm in question is a 9 millimeter pistol; authorities say they don’t know how the couple came into possession of the weapon. Also included in the indictment, theft of the Butlers’ pickup truck.

Prosecutors said they went before the Grand Jury as the accused pair was coming up on having been in jail for 90 days. If no indictment was brought after 90 days, then they would have been entitled to a “reasonable bond.” Feeling they had sufficient evidence to make their case, the prosecution went before the Grand Jury and got what they sought. The prosecution says they feel ready for trial, and anticipate both Williams and Noverr will continue behind bars until the case is resolved.

The thing that rings in my ears the most is, there are more people like this out there waiting for an opportunity. We don’t boondock cause of this type of animal. The death penalty isn’t enough to deter them. Not interested in starting a CC or OC debate cause you are more than likely not prepared for someone like this and would fumble the situation anyway.

I have been waiting for a follow up story, this helps. I’m pretty positive they killed the pair, they are dopers, that’s what I have been told anyway from other articles people have read. I want to know what happened to there cats! And where is their RV at? Did they kill the cats too?

They must of shot them as unsuspecting victims of those two, that’s what I’m thinking. The Butler man had been in the service, I’m sure he knew how to take care of himself so the only thing I know is that they both were expecting it……. dirty shame and make me so dang mad I swear God will be seeking justice on these two vehement souls.

I would like to hear that guys story I know that, I think he may have worked with them prior. He is probably being hush about it all. I hope that she spills her guts against him for a lighter sentence when all is said and done.

They did something awful to those RV’ers, and need to pay for it. It wont bring them back but revenge is sweet and enduring.

Please be careful out there if your boondocking, or even camping in a campground. Keep a watchful eye, carry pepper spray, a victim blasting horn, and a tazer gun for safety. It may save your life.

My wife and I were there when this happened. We heard 3 days after we left that the bodies had been found. This has totally messed with my wife’s security when boon docking. We haven’t boon docked since, what a shame this has happened. We are glad that the A%%Hats have been captured.

Be patient. Texas is working on building an iron clad case. I would rather it take some time to build the case against them to make sure they don’t see the light of day. I am wondering how they got a 9 mil into Mexico? They would fare much worst in Mexico and not afforded rights like they have here in the states.

Definitely these creeps would have had a less lovely time in the hands of Mexican authorities.
Good chance after this much time passing where I live in Canada they’d be out on good behavior awaiting trial.
Then months spent finding them when that trial resumed.
What a circus!
We witnessed that with the McCann murder debacle in Edmonton a few years back.

I’ve been following this story and I don’t believe anything was said about the BUTLERS (victims) Trailer? What happened to it?
Just speculating here, but chances are the evidence of the murders are in that trailer!

Please keep us up to date on this case!
