CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Kleberg Chief Deputy Jaime Garza confirmed to Action 10 News Wednesday night that Adam Curtis Williams was flown from Mexico to Houston, Texas where he met with authorities from the Kleberg County Sheriff's Office. Garza said Williams was magistrated and then driven to Kleberg where he was booked at the Kleberg County Jail. There will be a news conference Thursday morning.

Williams was wanted on a felony theft charge accused of stealing James and Michelle Butler's truck and camper. The Butler's were murdered and buried in a shallow grave at the beach on Padre Island in Kleberg County. Their bodies were discovered in late October by law enforcement just a week after their family reported them missing. Williams and another person were photographed crossing the US-Mexico border at Eagle Pass around the same time in the Butler's truck and camper.

Cause of death has yet not been released. The other person in the photograph was identified as Amanda Noverr. She was listed as a person of interest. She was not taken in with Williams to Kleberg County Jail.
