MANCHESTER, NH – On July 21 we posted a story about a couple on the run, wanted on state and federal drug charges. Ryan and Amanda Williams of Swanzey were arrested one day apart – Amanda was arrested on July 20 in Manchester, and Ryan one day later, in Keene.

The Keene Sentinal has done a follow-up story that provides much more background – including how their community had rallied not so long ago for the couple’s son, Oliver, now 4, who suffers from a rare blood disease, and how the family is coping with all of it – the heartbreak, the shame, the fear, the frustration.
