The family of James and Michelle Butler is speaking out after two bodies were discovered south of Bob Hall Pier.
The couple has been missing since Oct 14th and were on their way to Florida accepting a new job there. The family says that the couple made a stop in Corpus Christie, TX, where they stopped communicating for a few days.
The Kleberg County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy located a woman’s remains Sunday in a shallow grave on Padre Island, near Corpus Christi. Chief Deputy Jaime Garza says a man’s body was discovered Monday beneath the first body.
AGarza says it’s too early to say whether the bodies are connected to the search for 48-year-old James Butler and his wife, 46-year-old Michelle. The New Hampshire couple had been traveling in their RV since June 2019 and was last seen setting up camp on Burner Beach in Corpus Christi on October 14.
Four days later, authorities tracked their RV crossing the United States-Mexico border, and a description verified it was not James behind the wheel.
The family is waiting for the medical examiner to identify the remains.
