It has been almost a year since Ponce has been sentenced to 15 years in prison followed 15 years of probation. If he violates his probation he will go back to prison for another 20 years. It has been a long time since I have posted to the site but something happened today that made things come flooding back. I was going through a pile of papers when I saw a huge stack of spreadsheets containing thousands of IP addresses collected from this site. There was also a map of Spain where I marked locations of IP Addresses of interest. There were aerial photos of bus and train stations in Spain as well. There were copious notes. I looked at it all I couldn't believe how much was there. So much work. So many countless hours. I was looking at almost 6 years of my life. Reem after reem of paper. My every thought was consumed with his capture and getting justice for William. I think of William several times a day. I can't go to sleep at night without hugging his urn and telling him that I love him and miss him. I don't think of Ponce much any more. When Huricane Michael hit the prison that he was in I did hope that he was scared. After the storm, I was notified that they had moved him to Mayo Correctional. I had a dream one night that Ponce got in with the wrong croud thinking he would get protection but instead he took the fall for something and was sentenced to even more years. If only.
July 21, 2018
Thursday was another tough day. It was 6 years ago since William was killed. I still miss him every day. It sometimes feels so long ago, but it also feels like it was just yesterday. I still hear his voice and see that big smile. I wish I could still feel his big bear hugs. I miss him so much.
Working on the book has become daunting. What my wife and I went through while we were looking for Ponce, is something that I would not wish on anyone, yet here I am putting myself through the emotions all over again while I recount the thousands of hours that I spent looking. I often wonder if I can continue to put myself through it. I'm almost there, but unsure of the work. It's Like the more I write, the less I want to write. It makes me feel that bad. I will finnish the book, but God willing it won't make me a basket case in the end.
April 30, 2018
It has been a while since my last post. Since the last post we have had another "Walk Like Madd" rally on the campus of USF and we had several people come out and walk with Team William. I had so many people come up to me and say that they had followed our case from the beginning and that they were glad that justice was served. Since that time I have been working on my book. There 3 or 4 publishing companies interested in the book but I have not submitted anything yet. I say 3 or 4 because 1 is showing just a passing interest. Who knows, after I submit they may may take a look at it. It is tough going because writting it brings back all of the emotions that I had thought were behind me at this point. It will not be long now I hope. I just have to buckle down and get through it. I thought the writting would have a cathartic effect but it has been brutal. I pray to the Lord to help curb my emotions and help to calmly and clearly get the events of the last five and a half years on paper. Maybe if the book gets published I will send a copy to Ponce in prison. He has plenty of time for reading now.
February 13, 2018
I received a call about 45 minutes ago at 3:00 am from the Vinelink that Christopher Ponce has been moved from the Hillsborough County Jail and is now in the custody of the Florida Department of Corrections. He will go to a receiving center where he will await assignment to a prison. We do not know which one that will be yet. That should be in another couple of weeks. He didn't do the right thing for almost 6 years now. Welcome to your new home Christopher.
February 10, 2018
It has now been over two weeks since the sentencing and we still have not heard anything. He is still in county jail.
January 28, 2018
On Friday, January 26th, we witnessed Christopher Ponce plead Guilty to all charges, including the failure to appear (escape). In the plea deal that he took, he will spend 15 years in prison followed by 10 years probation. The probation is on 4 charges with 2 charges running concurrently with the other 2. Each charges has a 5 year probation attached to it. So, when Ponce gets out of prison if he violates his probation in any way, he will go back to prison for 20 years. The prison sentence is not as long as we wanted but that is what the State negotiated, so we have to live with it. Since we are no longer dealing with this, I think I would rather look at pictures of my son than of him.
January 4, 2018
I wish the trial would hurry up. I want him in prison. I want justice for William. My wife and I are experiencing anxiety with the waiting. We are also fearful that something will happen that will somehow let him off easy. That would devastate us. We are so let down by everything that has happened. We want justice to work in our favor, not his. We are getting ready for the most emotional time of our lives. To be let down once again is frightening. I don't frighten very easily but when I see my wife crying lately, it just scares me to think of what a let down at this stage of things will do.
December 31, 2017
The last day of the year. January 29, 2018 will be our day. That is Ponce's trial date. We have waited so long for this. The anticipation is mounting daily. There is also a fear that things could go wrong. We are trying to stay positive. We are meeting with the State's Attorney and the prosecutor on the 12th. Fingers crossed. Prayers, we need prayers.
December 20, 2017
Ponce had another hearing today. The court changed the date of the pre-trial hearing to January 25th, but the trial date will stay at January 29th. Ponce still wants a deal but we do not want to give him one. We were interviewed by a local TV station afterward and she asked me question in such a way that it led me to believe that she knew something that perhaps she should not have, so I answered it as short and vague as I could. When we saw the story later tonight I felt ill. The story actually looked like it favored Ponce and not us. I now know what will keep me awake tonight. This changes nothing. We are still seeking the longest prison term possible for this unremorseful POS.
13 more days until the next hearing date, 12/20/17. We are getting closer to trial. Tonight we went to the MADD candlelight vigil. So many people who have lost loved ones. It is tough to hear all the stories of loss. There has to be a way to get all these drunk idiots off the road. There simply has to be much tougher penalties for drunk driving. That is the only way that it is going to stop.
November 20, 2017
Another Holiday season is here. This will be the 6th without William. I don't know how long it will take before the holidays will have the same old energy as in the past. I'm not even sure if it will ever be the same. The holidays always started with Williams birthday in October, followed by Holloween, Thanksgiving, then Christmas. Without William it's like things just don't get started anymore. Even after justice is served we will not get that back. I hope Ponce has to spend 20 to 30 holidays in prison. Even then, he will get visitors on the holidays, perhaps even presents. What he took from us is forever. For the rest of my life I will have this pain that he created. He needs to feel loss too. Not just his freedom. I hope that once he goes away to prison people stop visiting him and calling him. Isolation befits him.
November 13, 2017
We are just 2 weeks away from Ponce's LAST disposition hearing. 11/27/17. After that it is going to get real punk. The pre-trial on January 23rd and the trial on January 29th. We are going to be there in force. Our friends and family will be there in support of justice for William. I hope Ponce cringes from all the eyes that will be on him to witness his and his family's final disgrace. I am experiencing a lot of anxiety and anticipation right now leading up to this. I am already writting my victims impact statement. I want him to know what he has done and to whom. I want him to cower. I want him to see that there is not a person in the world who respects anything about him.
October 23, 2017
WE HAVE A TRIAL DATE!!!!!!!! Ponce has one more dispostion hearing on November 27th. His pre-trial hearing in January 23rd, and his TRIAL is set to begin on January 29th!!!! I will be watching, in fact I will be staring!!
October 20, 2017
Well, William's birthday was tough. My wife and I sat and just talked about things. We talked about how long it seems sometimes since we lost William but how fresh things are in our minds. Sometimes it feels like yesterday but other times it seems so long ago since we have seen William. I know that it is going on 6 years since he was taken from us. Since I am almost 60 now, that means that I have been seeking justice for one tenth of my life. I guess that puts it into perspective right there. I still miss my son badly. I hug and kiss his urn every night before I go to bed. I talk to him every night too. And I know what he would say to me in return. Monday morning Christopher Ponce has another hearing and I hope they finally set a trial date. This has to end.
October 12, 2017
William's birthday is just a few days away. It just is not getting any easier this time of year. They say that things get easier with time but it must take a long time sometimes. I made the comment that the hardest thing is that when William was killed, a part of me died too. When Ponce fled and I poured my entire life into finding him, I lost more of me. I feel like I may never again be my old self. I'm not sure how to deal with it. I need to find another purpose. I guess I'm still searching. This time for me. I knew how to look for Ponce, he was not about to change. That made it easier. How do you find yourself though. That may prove tougher.
September 22, 2017
We watched an interesting show the other day. It was called "Prisons in America". It chronicaled a young man who was sent to prison. He was intimidated when his cell mate noticed that the kid's mother posted money into his account as soon as he arrived. The cell mate told him to buy a tv for him. The kid said his mom did not give him the money for things like that. The cell mate told him that his protection came at a price, a TV or sexual favors. The kid freaked out and went ...to the guards. He had an aweful time there and got a transfer to another prison. That prison had prisoners that watched the new prisoners closely and reported to the top gang member of the prison. They looked for weaknesses and soon discovered the kids mom giving him all the money that he asked for. It did not take long before he was once again extorted for money and sex. I watched the whole time thinking, "This is Ponce's future". I hope. Mom's help will be his undoing then.
I am glad that so many people have been made aware of Christopher Ponce. But some people today do not check things out very well. That is why fake news is so wide spread today. Christopher Ponce from Tampa Florida is in custody and will not get out of jail/prison for a very long time. I was contacted by an attorney who's name is Christopher Ponce. He has had difficulties because of his name, and the widespread notoriety of the scumbag pictured here. I am sure the TV show "The Hunt with John Walsh" is more widespread then this website but I hate to see this happen. Fortunately this will all soon be over.
August 27, 2017
No sleep tonight. Thinking about the hearing tomorrow will keep us awake all night. We will be at the hearing. We go to every hearing. We want the Judge to know that we are there. We want Christopher Ponce to know that we are there. We want his family to know that we are there. We want them all to know that we are there for justice, and we will not let them just skate through the proceedings without us. When he is sentenced they will hear from us too.
August 25, 2017
Monday 8/28/17 is Ponce's next hearing. We hope that either the judge will set a trial date or Ponce will realize his responsibilty and change his plee to guilty. We will be sure to update everyone after the hearing. We will get justice for William. There is also new developments in the investigation of those who gave Ponce aid and assistance. We will give an update on that at the appropriate time.
June 23, 2017
Ponce had his latest hearing yesterday. Once again it was good to see him in shackles and good to see him an orange jumpsuit. He looked down the whole time. Since Lynn and I were sitting right behind his family, (they chose that location, not us) He wouldn't even look at them because we were right there. They cut off his man bun off and trimmed his beard. I guess they were trying to clean him up like the last time, in an effort to make him not look like the sub-human that he is. Once again his family would not say anything or do anything that showed remorse. Neither did their useless son/brother/boyfriend. I wonder if his girlfriend knows about his female victims. Probably not. Anyway. The attorneys' were instructed to begin deposing witnesses. The next hearing is scheduled for August 28, 2017. At that time we are assuming that there will be a trial date set at that time. We are making progress.
June 11, 2017.
Less than a month until his next hearing date. My wife and I already have the day off from work and are looking forward to it. The press is contacting me asking questions about the hearing. I tell them that there is not much that I can tell them but they should show up just in case. They will be there. Someday Ponce's face and name will be synonomous with drunk trash, and his accomplices who do not cooperate with the investigation will be held accountable for their actions too. I can't wait.

Four years ago, Christopher Ponce cut off his ankle bracelet and went on the run. It took the Hillsborough County Sheriffs office over 9 hours to investigate the alarm. It then took the Sheriffs office 4 days to get a warrant. Now that Ponce is captured, (in Spain), and extradited back to this country, (April 6th, 2017), the Hillsborough County Sheriffs office has still not started to investigate those who helped him escape and flee to Spain. Please help us. Call the Sheriffs office or write them, asking for action. If they get enough people calling for it, we may get them to act. Their phone number is (813) 247-8200. Their Address is 2310 N. Falkenburg Rd. , Tampa FL 33619.
April 13, 2017
We were told that we would be informed of his first pre-trial court date within 30 days. It took less than 1 week!!! His first hearing is April 18, 2017. That is next Tuesday at 8:30am in the Edgecomb courthouse Annex, courtroom 33. I would like to fill that courtroom to show Judge Lisa Campbell how much support we have. The courthouse is at 800 E. Twiggs St. in downtown Tampa.
April 9, 2017
For the first time in years I got a good nights sleep. I actually woke up feeling good and refreshed. It was awesome
Christopher Ponce's first court appearance since being extradited. NO BOND!!!! He will not get out of jail. We got see him being led in and out of court in handcuffs and shackles. So gratifying to see him doing the inmate shuffle.
April 7, 2017
This is Christopher's new mugshot. This is now part of quite a collection of mugshots that he has accumulated. He will make someone a good wife in prison.
April 6, 2017
It is now 2am on April 7th. My wife and I had the pleasure of witnessing Christopher Ponce being escorted into the Orient Rd jail here in Tampa this evening. We waited at the airport for 5 hours hoping to see him as the U S Marshalls escorted him off the plane. They took him by another route so we had to hurry in order to beat them to the jail and just barely did so. We were able to see him being escorted into the booking area of the jail. There was a news channel 8 videographer there too, so we will have a video to share with you all on our facebook page, facebook/findchrisponce. I will put it up as soon as it is available. I know many of you have followed this story for a long time and will want to see the video.
March 28, 2017
We just had the "Walk Like MADD" fundraiser last Friday 3/24/2017 on the campus of The University of South Florida. It went well. We raised some money for the cause of ending drunk driving. Many people asked me if there was any news yet about Ponce's extradition. We still do not know where it is in the process, but we have been told that he should be back in this country in 4 to 5 months. We are looking forward to it.
February 1, 2017
It's that time of year again. On March 24th, 2017 Mother's Against Drunk Driving will be having their annual "Walk Like Madd" fundraiser on the campus of the University of South Florida. Our team, "Walking for William" will again be there. We are trying to raise money in his name. MADD has always been there for us since William was killed. We could never repay them but we try. If you would like to sign up to walk with us or donate money on behalf of our team, go to www.walklikemadd.org/tampa and go to the lower right part of the page to the team look up area. Look for team "Walking for William AORN 1014" to sign up or donate. We will also have a couple of local fundraisers at Tijuana Flats coming up and we will post those dates. Thank you all.
January 13, 2017
On May 23, 2016 I posted that I believed we would catch Christopher Ponce that year. We did! We still wait for his return back here to face trial for killing William. In the meantime we have to continue with our lives as best we can. Therefore, I am happy to announce that we have started an online Inspirational store. It's is www.333Mart.com. Everything from inspirational books and Bibles to home and decor to jewelry. All at good prices. I have wanted to start this for months but I had difficulty figuring out what I wanted to name it. Then it came to me. Or should I say, William came to me.
Every time I drive past the place where William was killed, I flash my lights or turn them off and back on if it is nighttime. Just a little signal to William that I am there. I was driving past the spot while on my way to meet with my Congressman to put pressure on the extradition process. I flashed my lights and at the same exact time, the street light above me flashed once quickly. Just the one light flashed. The Black Crows were playing on the radio. The song was "She Talks to Angels" and the time on the clock was 3:33pm. The hair stood up on my arms and I started to tear up. The next day my wife was preparing for the Great American Teach - In. She buys candy to reward the students for correct answers. (Lots of candy I might add). As we were ringing up the sale at the self check out I told my wife that she was going to have a great presentation. She said, "How do you know". I said "listen" As I rung up each bag of candy the voice in the cash register said, "3.33", "3.33", "3.33." I told her that 333 is the sign of the Angels and that William would be watching. That is when I knew what the name of my store would be. Please visit our website at www.333Mart.com. We have a wide variety of products that make great gifts. They are also affordable. It will also help us out in our effort get back on track. Thanks everyone. Visit our Facebook page too at Facebook.com/333mart. and friend the site.
Another Christmas without William. It's still very difficult since William was so into Christmas. It would start with his birthday in October, then continue with Thanksgiving and culminate with Christmas. He was the one who had no problem running around with a Santa hat on his head. He had the biggest heart too. I miss him so much.
December 5, 2016,
I want to let everyone know that today the monster creating mother of Christopher Ponce, (Vivian Medina DDS) was finally in court. Not much was said and she looked as guilty as she is. I hope she was churning inside. TOMORROW WILL BE DAY 2 IN COURT!!! I will be watching the whole thing. I want to support Jay as he and his attorney turn up the heat on this woman. I want her to see Williams parents there staring her down. I hope it makes her stomach churn.
We need our followers from Spain to contact us. Please use the "Tell Us What You Know" page and give us your contact information. We will contact you. We are now going after those who helped Ponce with his run from justice. We need eyes in Spain. Please contact us.
The pictures to the left are that of Christopher (Chris) Ponce. He is a repeat DUI offender. On July 19, 2012 Christopher Ponce was driving drunk in the wrong direction on I-275 N. in Tampa Florida. He hit the car of William Angel head on. The impact killed William and badly injured his two friends in the car with him. Somehow, Christopher was able to get bond and was placed on house arrest. On May 9, 2013 after 288 days of house arrest, Christopher Ponce cut off his ankle bracelet and escaped.
I am William Angel's father, and I am looking for information that will lead to the capture and prosecution of Christopher Ponce. He may have changed his identity. Someone will be assisting him. If you have any information please share it with us. There is a reward set up for his capture through crimestoppers, and we are putting together another reward of our own. The U S Marshalls are also offering a $5000.00 reward. Please help us find William's killer. Christopher Ponce has had numerous in the past and will hurt or kill again if we do not get him off the street. He is charged with multiple offens es including vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.
October 24, 2016
I just heard of a case of a missing woman from Alabama whose family needs our help. Her name is Alissia Freeman. Her family has a facebook page Facebook.com/Find Alissia Freeman. As far as I know they do not have a webpage but I encouraged them to do so. Please go to their facebook page and share it with everyone you know. Please help them as you helped us in our search for our son's killer. With our more than 1million viewers we can spread this very fast. Lets get them their daughter back!!!
October 13, 2016
William's birthday is now upon us again. He would have been 25 this year. I wonder what he would have been doing if he was still with us. I know he would still be finding ways to help others. He always did that. He liked doing things for others. It still aches to miss him this much. I miss his smile and laugh.
On another note, I hope Ponce is suffering in that Spanish jail. I hope the illegal alien is getting picked on every day.
September 17, 2016
It has been over a month since Ponce was captured. We have learned a lot about what he was doing over there and who he knew over there. I am confident that those who helped him will be punished. I have received assurances that they will. The people who are not "family" will be the first to be hauled in. They are the easiest to get. After we get a little more info it will time to reel them in. We are not sure of his trial dates in Spain but we have people looking in to it and we will keep everyone informed as the hearings happen. Again, if you are one of the many people from Spain who visit our site, please let us know if you hear anything.
CNN is airing an update to the case tonight (August 14th) at 8pm.
CHRISTOPHER PONCE HAS BEEN ARRESTED IN SPAIN!!!!!!!!
That's right, the POS is finally in jail. We are now waiting for extradition. We found out some time ago but we have been so busy with interviews, visitors, family and friends coming over, that I am just now getting around to making the announcement. GREAT DAY!!!
I will continue to post here and on our facebook page Facebook.com/findchrisponce to keep people up to date on his extradition, and court proceedings. ALL THE WAY TO SENTENCING. If we can get charges for those who helped him, we will follow those cases too. RIGHT UP TO THEIR SENTENCING TOO.
July 19, 2016
Four years ago today, Christopher Ponce killed my son William. He also changed the lives of our family forever. This drunken, drug addicted son of fools was given everything he needed to be a total waste of human skin and he took full advantage of it. While under house arrest he could not drink because of his alcohol monitor so he would smoke pot and spice every day. Since he could not leave the house that means that once again, he had family and friends supplying him with what he needed to be a subhuman. And what kind of person helps someone like that? Another subhuman. He chose to drive drunk. They chose to enable him. He chose to run instead of faces up to it. They say they are not helping him despite their failure to report a missing person, their failure to go on air to tell him to turn himself in, their paying off the bondsman to make sure that no bounty hunter will go after him. Yep, all a waste of human skin. Not worthy of breathing the same air as the rest of us.
July 9, 2016
Soon it will be another full year (4) since the crash that took Willaim's life. An intentional act of Christopher Ponce. Yes, it was intentional. When Ponce left his house to go drinking and partying he was driving with every intention of driving home. He did not arrange for a cab or take a designated driver with him. He INTENDED to drive home. Making his actions pre-meditated. If a person intentionally drives drunk then they are intentionally putting others at risk. They are making more then just a stupid choice. They are making a dangerous choice. A choice that ends lives, alters lives and destroys lives.
Just today, I was out with some friends and I recounted to them that one of the hardest things to deal with is that whenever I google William's name or my name the first thing I see is Christopher Ponce's name and picture. William's name and mine will forever be linked to this piece of crap. Maybe after he is captured and put away, after the website is taken down, after the news stories end, it will change. I had someone comment on the findchrisponce facebook page today saying that we should not blame Christopher's parents since we have no proof that they helped him. They obviously have not read up on this story. They obviously have not heard of the parents absolute lack of compassion, dignity, and respect. They obviously have not heard of the things that they have said and not said. They have no idea at all. Or maybe this person knows them and is trying to help them in some twisted way. Why I do not know. I deleted their post. It was dribble. For that person I just want to say this;
I personally believe that Christopher Ponce's family knew of, or helped with by direct means or inaction with Christopher Ponce's escape. They never filed a missing person's report. They never attemted to look for him. Whenever the press asked them for a statement they never asked Christopher to turn himself in. They speak only through spokespersons. They have never reached out to us to show any kind of remorse. They have only shown contempt. I do not believe that they are good people. They do not do what is right, they do what is right for them. That is where Christopher learned it. They created this monster. They enabled this monster. They ARE helping this monster. Just by doing nothing, they are helping him.
June 11, 2016
I want to remind everyone to tell their friends that the episode of "The Hunt with John Walsh" that features Christopher Ponce is re-airing Sunday (tomorrow) June 12th at 2 pm. Please try to have everyone you know watch it. The more people who see this POS the closer we are to capturing him.
June 5, 2016
Well, I am trying to get a wanted poster loaded on the page that can be printed out by people visiting us. This way the people who say that they want to do something to help can print it out, make copies and post them around their home town. (Make sure you get permission first). First I had trouble with getting my Word 2013 renewed. Now I am having trouble getting the poster loaded in a printable format. I will keep working on it. I may have to phone a friend on this one haha. I will have it soon though.
May 26, 2016
Today, I picketed in front of the dental office of Christopher's mother Vivian Medina DDS. Why? Because his father's dental office, (Rolando Ponce DDS) is on a residencial street with light traffic. Both Vivain Medina and Rolando Ponce live on Caldesacs so there is no traffic there either. Vivian's office is on a busy road. That's why. I can't picket in front of Christopher's place of employment now can I? The news crew stopped by to chat, you can see the story on News Channel 8 tampa's website. Vivian Medina made a feeble attempt through e-mail with the reporter but did not answer her questions when she went to her office. Let me take a few minutes to explain why we are where we are with this case. Vivian Medina complained today about my protesting. If Vivian, Rolando, Christopher, John Fitzgibbons (attorney) or anyone connected to their side of this would have shown one bit of compassion or remorse in the beginning, my wife and I had discussed that we would forgive and even speak to the judge for leniency. No one from the family said anything to us. Even though Rolando and Vivian sat just 3 feet away from us in the courtroom. There was no mention of submission to a substance abuse program in return for leniency. There was no statement of remorse from anyone. My wife and I patiently waited to hear something. We had the service for William, we attended every hearing and heard nothing. Christopher, Rolando, Vivian, and their expensive attorney only had one thing on their minds. GETTING AWAY WITH IT!!! Their lack of compassion, and their lack of remorse, and their lack of decency has lead to this. How on earth can they complain about my protesting or picketing now. Don't play the victim. It does not suit you. You are not worthy of pity. I pray for you every day. Yes I do. I pray that the Lord turns your hearts or Christopher's heart to do the right thing and accept responsibility for William's death. I pray that you all can have peace in making that decision. If you want respect, you have to show respect first. We were ready for that. Even under those horrible conditions. The ball was in their court. They chose wrong. They have a history of choosing wrong. That's why Christopher turned out the way he is. He was never been held accountable. Vivian and Rolando just kept "taking care of things". They can't "take care of this". They could have mitigated it but chose wrong again. Now they have to live with me posting things about them and picketing them. This was YOUR doing, not mine. Enough said.
May 23, 2016
Sometimes I hear from people who say just what I need to hear. We have so many people who are actively searching for this scum. I heard from of them just a few minutes ago. She wanted to let me know what she was doing and what databases she was now using. She has some amazing capabilities now. Talking to her gave me a renewed confidence that this will be the year that we get him. I shared with her some of the info that I have gleaned recently and she is going to run with it. We WILL get you Ponce!!!!
May 9, 2016
It was 3 years ago today that this POS ran from justice. It was made possible by the lower than low bond that he was let out on. Just $50,000 or $5000 cash which is nothing. Especially when his family has money. To make today even worse for us, we see that yesterday's wrong way driver / killer was held without bond. Maybe his family did not have connections. Even though his blood alcohol level was much lower than Ponce's and his driving record was less criminal. I can't for the life of me determine why the prosecutors did not hold Ponce for even worse actions. Maybe the prosecutors office will answer my email on that. Both killings happened in Hillsborough County. I will research who the prosecutors are and who the judges are and update later.
April 12, 2016
The MADD fundraiser "Walk Like MADD" was held on April 1, 2016 and several hundred people walked. I did 4 interviews in an effort to keep our story and the search for Chrostopher Ponce in the public eye. Thank you to everyone who came out. I had the honor of meeting the family of Deputy Kotfila. Their tent was right next to ours. I purchased one of their T shirts and wear it proudly in support of them and their family.
I was contacted through this site a couple of nights ago and the person gave us a tip that we want to follow up on. Unfortunately, we need more specifics. If you read this please contact us again with the information that I put in my reply e-mail. Thanks.
March 15, 2016
The latest news by the eye witness to the crash of Officer John Kotfila shows just how much of a hero he was, and is, and always will be to the people that he protected that night. Sacrificing himself for others in the ultimate act of protection and sacrifice. God Bless Officer Kotfila, his family and everyone who knew and loved him. I am sure to them that his memory will live forever.

Everyone please reach out to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office. They lost a deputy last night to a wrongway driver. I'm sure the wrongway driver was drunk too. To the family of the deputy, Sheriff Gee and Col. Greg Brown, and all officers our deepest sympathies. We know how you feel. We would like to extend an invitation to join us on April 1, 2016 on the USF campus to "Walk Like MADD". We will have a tent set up in honer of our son William. Our colors are lime green, we will be easy to spot. This year, we will also keep officer John Kotfila Jr with us in memorial. Please join us.

Well, we are going to see something different on this website. Someone has offered to do some photoshop work for us. Hopefully soon we will have Christopher Ponce's picture altered to show how he may look now. Different hair, no hair, like a women, beard and no beard, whatever. Now when people see it they will see different versions of him. Someone may have seen him but just did not recognize him. They will now. Thanks everyone.
March 2, 2016
Just a quick update for everyone. The net that extends around the world is getting larger by the day. Since I started this page on June 4th, 2013 we have reached a lot of people. Here is where we are:
Total unique views. 751,446
Regular viewers and fans: 193,728
Contacts forms submitted: 93,161 (I have answered most of them)
I will not list the number of tips only, as I know that Christopher and his family have viewed the page in the past and probably will again.
Number of countries reached: 27
Number of states reached: 50
Anywhere he is, people know about him. Please keep spreading the word! Thank you.
These numbers are actually a week old. It took me a while to post.
February 21, 2016
I am still trying to find someone out there that knows how to use photoshop to alter Ponce's photos. If there is anyone out there who would volunteer their time to alter his pictures, ie. Bald, bald with a beard, mustache beard, dressed as a female, Long hair short hair, you get the picture. Anyway, I am not very techy. THe photos on this page are downloadable. If anyone can change them and send them back to me I will create a new page for those photo enhancments and give you a byline on it.

On April 1, 2016 we will be at the MADD "Walk Like MADD" event on the campus of USF. To join our "Walking for William AORN 1014" team go to www.walklikemadd.org/tampa and sign up. The cost is $20.00 before March 1, 2016. After March 1 it is $25.00. We will walk as a group and we look forward to meeting all of the new members of our team and seeing all of team members who have walked with us each year. All of the money raised stays local for victims of drunk drivers and their families.

I want to share what happened just a little while ago. I received a call from the taxidermist that cured the hide from Williams last buck. I went to pick it up and he told me that he used the hide for a talk that he had given recently on the subject of taxidermy. He told the people that taxidermy is more than just the trophy of a kill. It is preserving memories. He shared Williams and my story. He let people know that this hide means so much to me because it was Williams. I told him thank you, even though it made me mist up. It is another "last" for me too. These "lasts" are so bittersweet. I love seeing things that remind me of William, but it is also sad to know that it will be the last time for it. There will be no more hunts with William. That's sad.
If you are in the Tampa area and need taxidermy done, go to Final Shot Taxidermy. Ryan gets it. He understands the "Why". The hide turned out very nice too. I like to support the good guys. His phone number is (863) 838-6779.
February 5, 2016
CNN will once again re-air the episode of "The Hunt with John Walsh" that features Christopher Ponce. Hopefully the right person will see his face and turn him in this time. It will air on Sunday the 7th at 6pm and again at 1 am Monday. I know it's Superbowl Sunday but not everybody watches football.
January 15, 2016
With so many people worldwide contacting us about Christopher Ponce I want to fill everyone in on some important things. First, Christopher Ponce was required to give a DNA sample before he ran. His DNA is in CODIS, a national database of DNA samples. If you see someone who looks like Christopher Ponce, take note of what he is doing. If he takes a drink from a glass, GET THE GLASS. If he is smoking, GET THE BUTT. If he touches something, his fingerprints are there and his DNA. Notify the local police right away. Remember that Ponce may be living as a woman too. Take notice of facial features. Second, if you see someone that looks like Ponce, try to get a picture, full face is best for facial recognition software. I truely feel that this is the year we get him.
January 6, 2016
I just saw the announcement today that Netflix is now going worldwide. That means that the episode from "The Hunt with John Walsh" that features Christopher Ponce will now be able to be seen by people worldwide. That is great news. Now is the time to get our page out there as far as we can. I appreciate everyone who likes our page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/findchrisponce), but I am asking you now to please share our page on your Facebook page and encourage your friends to do the same. This is our opportunity to put his face all over the world. Lets get this punk.
December 29, 2015
I see on the news this morning that they have captured Ethan Couch and his Mom in Mexico. I knew they would catch them right away. They may have money but they are not very bright. We will catch Christopher too. He or his family will eventually screw up to the point where it gives him away. They have just been lucky so far. Our time is coming. I did an interview with channel 8 (NBC) this morning too. Please share the link from our facebbok page with everyone you know. If you know someone in the military stationed overseas, share it with them and get it out there to that country.
December 23, 2015
This is the 4th Christmas without William. It is still hard to get into the spirit and stay there. First we get festive then we feel guilty for it. Then we get angry for not being able to see William or be with him while his killer is out there doing God knows what. I hope Christopher is looking over his shoulder. I hope he is nervous. I hope he gets scared when he sees strangers. I hope he craps his pants when the Marshalls kick the door in. I hope he fights and resists them. Please resist. Better yet, pull out a weapon when they come through the door. Happy ending.
December 17, 2015
I want to thank the person who contacted me to point out that the pictrure in my last post , if not the whole story, was not ligit. I did however, just hear that a related story happened in that the kid from Texas who killed four people while drunk driving and got 10 years probation is now missing along with his mother. Another case of lots of money but no brains. When they catch him he will go away now and his mom will too. Geniuses!
December 15, 2015
I guess my post from yesterday was taken the wrong way by people who it was not even intended to address. WOW! I have decided (again) that I am going to give in and delete my last post. I am sorry if the post offended anyone. I would not want to make anyone feel like a "victim". Trust me I know what being a victim feels like.
December 10, 2015
Another holiday season. William's empty setting at the Thanksgiving table again. another hunting season without him. Another Christmas coming. I know that sooner or later Christopher will screw up and get caught or his family will screw up and give his whereabouts up. Then we can throw them all in jail. They deserve it after what they created, and what they have done. The life they took and the lives they have damaged. HELL will be too good for them.
November 18, 2015
Today I had a very vivid memory of William that touched me instantly. I was leaving the supermarket and I saw a man and a little boy ringing the bell at the Salvation Army pot. It reminded me of when William and I did that when he was little. We did it between Thanksgiving and Christmas so we sang Christmas carols as we rang the bell. William, about 5 or 6 at the time, discovered a way to get more people to give. Just imagine this from a little toe-headed boy. He would sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas", and each time he would come to the word "You" he would point to a person who was either coming into the store or leaving the store. He made it a personal wish toward that person. He filled that pot so fast and so many times. He was so cute. The memory hit me just as I was about to put the money into the pot. My eyes welled up so fast that I could not see the slot well enough to get the money in. The man asked me if I was alright. I said yes and just handed him the money to put in the pot. As he did, I explained why I got so emotional. He gave me his sympothy and said he was sorry, but I thanked him for giving me that sudden jolt of just how special my son was.
Now it is 5 hours later and as I update this page I have to look at a picture of the Ponce family monster as I do it. It still bothers me that even though my wife and I raised William to be a thoughtful, responsible, intelligent, giving person, that his life had to be taken by his exact opposite. His parents raised him to be self-centered, uncaring, undisciplined, and irresponsible. How can he still be alive and William not.
Christopher, you really should give yourself up, because if you make me go all the way in finding you there will be no forgiveness. I will make sure that you get the most time under the law. If you make me or the police find you, I will find out who helped you, who hid information, who funded you, everyone of them, and they will all suffer because of you. It's time to grow up and accept responsibility for what you have done like a decent human being.
November 13, 2015
Thanksgiving is almost here. This was William's favorite time of year. Thanksgiving, Christmas, hunting season, cooler temperatures. He really liked this time of year. William and Wade would get me a belt and a wallet every year for Christmas and I loved getting them because by the time Christmas rolled around I really needed to replace my ones from the previous year. It's odd, but I have not had to replace the one that he got me for Christmas in 2011. It is wearing like iron. It even looks cool as it ages. I like leather that turns two-tone over time. The only thing that needs replacing are the picture holders. They are all yellowed and need replacing. I can't find replacments in the stores so I will have to find them online. I don't ever want to replace that wallet though. It was the last Christmas gift from William.
What I would really like for Christmas is for Christopher to be captured or turn himself in. I hope his Christmas sucks and his family's Christmas.
October 15, 2015
Today is Williams birthday.
Rot in hell Ponce!
October 12, 2015
William's birthday is in a couple of days or so, and this is not easier. For the last three years we have gone bowling with some of William's old friends. They used to like to go bowling late at night when it would be cheaper to bowl. His friends are all older know with jobs and college and everything. It is harder to get everyone together to go out. This is just the beginning of what is a very difficult time for us. The holidays without William are just not the same.
October 3, 2015
William's birthday is coming up again soon. We are trying to figure out what we want to do for him this year. What I really want is to give his urn a big hug and say, "We Got Him Buddy". He sure as heck better hope the Feds get him before I do. The longer this goes on the more mad I get.
September 25, 2015
I am furious today. I have been using craigslist to post ads all over the country and abroad, where I could, to get volunteers to help me look for Ponce. I have been managing the ads and answering responses for a couple of months now. I have been able to get a few people to search with me online and spread his picture and our story. Today I could not log on. I had to change my password and when I went in I saw that ALL of my adds had been deleted. EVERY one. Apparently they did not like me posting on their site. Why is that whores and con - men can advertise on their site but not me!!! They will not answer my questions. This is so unfair. Craigslist can bite my a#@.
September 15, 2015
Today I received another message from God to keep going. Yesterday was a bad day. It was the 5th anniversary of my father's death. My son has been gone for over 3 years. They were both named William. I named my son after my Dad. When I sit at my computer every day I look to my right and there is a picture of my Dad with William on his lap. William was 1 year old in the photo. Two Williams, that are missed very much. I've been having a tough go at the search lately. I have been hit with more roadblocks then I care to deal with. The information chain is only one way. I never hear what is being done with my leads. Sometimes it gets difficult to keep going, but today I went to Publix and my day changed. I was going through the store and I noticed a vender who was stocking beer. I never go down that isle since I do not drink, but I went that way today to go to the checkout. He was stacking the beer when a six pack fell. He made a swift jab with his right hand and made a clean catch just as I passed him. I said, "Nice catch" to which he responded "Thanks". I continued to the checkout line and was paying when the same young man came up to me and said," I think I know you from somewhere." I said , "Probably on the news or TV." He said, " I like what you are doing and I am a big fan of your page." I thanked him, shook his hand and turned to leave, when a sudden wave of emotion hit me. I had to compose myself before continuing to my vehicle. People do notice. People do care. God is still at work.
September 13, 2015
Well, Williams birthday is coming up again soon. I will have to come up with something to do otherwise just thinking about everything hurts. I sincerely feel that it will not be too much longer before he is captured. Then when we find out who helped him I will be able to stay very busy contacting those in charge and pushing very hard for their prosecution, that is of course unless they convince him to turn himeself in instead. Then and only then will I leave them off the hook. Do you get that Christopher? The only way to save your family, friends, whoever is helping you or not telling where you are, is to give yourself up. Period. If you force us to to go all the way to capture. I'm going to use the legal system to make everyone's life HELL.
September 4, 2015
Someone contacted the website and told me that I need to put more information on the site about what we have found out and what we are doing so that people can help us more. I tried to contact the person but I think they may have spelled their email wrong or something because I could not get through to them. Any way, this is not the first time someone has said this so let me explain why this is true. Christopher Ponce, his family, and many of his friends are viewing this site on a regular basis I am sure. They are all so narcissistic they would not be able to stop themselves from looking at the site. If I put all of the correct information out there for them to see it could actually give them a heads up. I sure as heck do not want to do that. I am sure that family and friends are helping Christopher. Christopher is not the only criminal that we are dealing with here.
August 14, 2015
The U S Marshal's have been extremely effective this year. I encourage everyone to go to their website and see the sheer number of captures they have made this year. I hope Christopher and the members of his family check it out too. I know you all watch my website. You can't help it you sick narsicists. Any way, go to www.USMarshals.gov and go to their news page. It gives the breakdown of all of their catures. Christopher's will be coming soon enough. SCUM
August 14, 2015
We have some very good hearted people trying to help us. Thank you all. I was not talking about you in yesterday's post. You all have never asked for anything. I am talking about scam artists who constantly try to take advantage of us, (and some that have succeeded), when they see my posts. Most people see what we are going through and want to help. Some see only an opportunity to try to defraud. Sick bastards.
August 13, 2015
Some days just suck!!! The Marshals don't share. Nobody shares. You know the old saying about being a mushroom. On the other hand, the number of con artists contacting me has really increased. I can't tell you how fun it is to have people contact you and make you think that they know something or have information for you. It makes your adrenaline rush and you get temporarily excited, (even though you know the probability of it being yet another con artist), and then at just the right moment they ask for you to send them money so that they can continue to help. Your heart falls, you get upset, and then it's back to drowning yourself in more searches. I can only hope that some day you all get what is coming to you.

The Hunt with John Walsh caught their first fugitive of the year.
August 3, 2015
It has been over three years since the Ponce family monster killed our William. I remember it clearly. It was on the news that day, but the very next day there was a shooting in a movie theater in Aurora CO. Suddenly the heat was off Ponce. Ordinarily the press would have run the story for days but they now had a bigger story. Today that trial of the movie theater shooter James Holmes is almost completed. He has been found guilty and is going through the penalty stage to see if he will get the death penalty. Our anguish still continues. Christopher Ponce's day will come. Those who know where he is and are not telling will get their day in court too. Their lives will change when they have a felony on their record. Those who are actively helping him have a prison cell in their future too. We will be there for it. It is long over due. Your support of this scum will drag you down. I will see to it.
August 2, 2015
Ever since the re-runs of the show "The Hunt with John Walsh" has gone to Netfix we have seen an upsurge of contacts to our webpage. We thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers, as well as the tips that we receive. I honestly feel that we are getting more traction and will apprehend this monster and his accomplises very soon.
July 19, 2015
Terrible day. It has been 3 years since the Ponce family monster took William from us. I tried to stay busy but I couldn't turn my mind off. I sat down and just thought about William, the things we did together, the games he played online and how how good he was at them. I thought about our fishing trips and hunting trips. That just made me sad. Then I thought I would rather be mad then sad so I grabbed one of my high power air rifles and went out in the yard and shot for a couple of hours. I had to print out 3 of Ponce's pictures for targets. I wore out all three. Tomorrow I am thinking about going to the range with one of my AR's and doing it again. The AR's blow that picture up. I can hit the target right between the eyes every time at 100 yards with my AR's. They are sighted in perfectly after hours and hours of practice.
July 12, 2015
8pm is the airing of the update show of "The Hunt with John Walsh" on CNN and HLN network. At 9pm the new season 2 premier episode airs on CNN. Ther Marshalls are manning their call center and I am manning mine. Each time it airs we increase our chances.
July 10, 2015
I just got a new tool to help me in my search!!! So far so good. I can't tell you what it is but it will greatly help me get the word out farther and faster. I spent nine hours setting it all up today. Wish me luck. Hey Christopher!!!! I'm coming!!!!
July 8, 2015
It has been almost 3 years since the Ponce family monster killed William. I still have some things that I wonder about from those early days in this nightmare. I created a new page for this website called "Things to think about". You may find some of it interesting......or not. What do you think?
July 7, 2015
I just want to let everyone know that on July 12, CNN will start the new season 2 of "The Hunt with John Walsh". At 8pm they are going to air an update show of all of last years episodes, and at 9pm they will air the first episode of season 2. We are also still getting leads from the Netflix shows. We are trying to make connections between Christopher Ponce and others. If anyone can find out old friends from school or relatives in other countries let us know. We know a lot but sometimes it is a small detail that does it. Let's keep looking. Thanks.
July 3, 2015
With the episodes of "The Hunt with John Walsh" now being shown on Netflix, we are getting more leads coming in. We are also getting contact by tech savvy viewers who are on line most of the time and even get their news and information online. That is great news. So many of you willing to help!!! Thank you for your efforts. Anyone who wishes to do online searches we would greatly appreciate your help. We continually look online and need others to do so also. Try to find connections to other people. try to find postings that he may of made. try to get emails he may have sent. I am not that tech savvy but I do what I can. Look out Christopher, our numbers are growing. Get the word out all over the world. Tell all of your friends to post this even if they are in other countries. Thanks.
June 24, 2015
Well, it's been 4 days since William's brother Wade Jr got married. It was tough not having William there. We had a spot set for him at our table with his picture there. Wade and Bre had a portion of the service dedicated for those that could not be there. It was for Her Grandparents and William. We will make Christopher pay for that too.
June 13, 2015
I hope the people who are helping Christopher are watching the story of the escaped prisoners in New York very closely. I hope they have seen Joyce Mitchell in handcuffs as they put her in jail for helping them. That is exactly what is going to happen when we capture Christopher. The people that are helping him now are going to be the ones in jail with him. I can't wait. CHRISTOPHER! If you don't want to see them suffer for you, TURN YOURSELF IN WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!! The longer you wait, the worse it will be. Better Yet, When we catch up with you, do something stupid like Charles Mozdir did.
June, 11, 2015
Only 9 days until Williams brother Wade gets married. William should be here for this. It is just not fair. Someday we will get to see Christopher and those who are helping him or not turning him in get their's. I will be in the front row of the courthouse cheering.
May 14, 2015
I had a dream last night that we caught Christopher Ponce. In the dream, he had been in hiding for a long time. He was married under a false name and had a family. It actually felt good that his entire life was torn apart. I do not want him to be free for that long but if he is it will be even worse for him. The only way he can avoid that is to stay alone. Either way, it will be worse. I can't wait to see him in prison. I hope he becomes the unwilling prison wife to the fatest, smelliest guy in the prison.
May 10, 2015
Mother's Day. A day of mixed feelings. There are so many days like this. Not having William here to share in things. William liked to make things for us as gifts. He was very creative and very artistic. My portrait that he made for me for father's day is one of my cherished possessions. It looks just like me. The roses that he drew for his mom are beautiful. He always put a lot of effort into those sort of things. He knew how much they would be appreciated. I still have trouble trying to wrap my head around the fact that our terrific son was killed by someone like this devil's spawn. It was two years ago yesterday that he fled justice. Happy Mother's Day. Every year until he is caught we have that to connect with what was once a very happy day for us. Everything gets shaded by this product of evil. His Mom must be so proud. On the other hand, she probably doesn't even think twice about it. They are all too narcissistic to care. We ask everyone to boycott Vivian Medina DDS and Rolando Ponce DDS. We still believe that they helped him escape and are helping him stay hidden. Don't give them the money to do it.
May 6, 2015
Hey, I am finally able to update. The system has been frozen for a while now. You can tell by how long it has been since the last post. I am sick and tired of that error message, I hope I never see it again. You know I am still getting charged my hosting fee even though I could not post for over 3 1/2 weeks. Ok, to update, I continue to work with the US Marshal's office. We still have the GoFundMe campaign going and my new software is letting do more indepth database searches. Season 2 of "The Hunt with John Walsh" will begin in July. Originally it was to start in April, but that has now changed. They will begin by updating former cases from last season. Our worldwide network of friends is growing and it is just a matter of time before Ponce's picture gets in front of the right person. We will not stop.
March 24, 2015
The Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Walk - Like - MADD event last weekend went very well. I keep telling those individuals that although I like them I wish that we had never met, infering that our loved ones would still be alive. They all agree, but we do what we do to try to end drunk driving. My wife and I were asked to speak to the assembled crowd and I think it went well. We received several positive comments and hopefully our plea to help MADD came through loud and clear. They really do help people. Now, back to business.
I want to remind people that there is a $5000.00 reward on Ponce's head by the U S Marshal's Service. We also have our own reward for his capture. Crimestoppers also have a reward for this case of up to $1000.00 It is definitley worth someone's while to make the call or contact this site. If you wish, we will not reveal your name but you will still be eligible for the reward. The entire Angel family, as well as Williams friends and co-workers would be eternally grateful for your information.
March 14, 2015
Only 6 more hours until they re-air the Ponce episode on "The Hunt with John Walsh". It comes on at 10pm on CNN. It took a few re-airings before someone turned in Victor Bernard. This could be the time for Ponce!!!! We are coming to get you Christopher!! Pleeeeeease resist arrest.
March 7, 2015
I wanted to wait until "The Hunt with John Walsh" aired before I made this update. Victor Bernard, the peice of garbage that used peoples faith against them to abuse their children, has been captured in Brazil. That is another one down.
CHRISTOPHER, your time is about up! Give yourself up and it might be easier on you. If you continue to think that you will go uncaught you are mistaken. The authorities have far too many people looking for you for you to stay away. They are all over the world. I also have people looking for you, and they too are all over the world. Give up now and admit your mistakes. It will be easier on you that way. It's time for all of this to end. If you wait until you are caught I am personally asking for the maximum and then some. Take the lighter sentence. Give yourself up!
February 18, 2015
We are gearing up for the annual MADD fundraiser know as "Walk like MADD". Anyone wanting to be a member of our team, or be a virtual walker, you can go to www.walklikemadd.org/tampa. Go to our team name, "Walking for William - AORN 1014" The walk is on March 20th on the University of South Florida campus. We will be set up near Alumni Dr and Leroy Collins Blvd. The cost per walker is $25. All walkers will get a MADD T shirt when they register at the event, but everyone on our team will get something from team William. Check in is at 5pm and the walk begins at 7pm. MADD has helped our family get throigh this tough time and we would like to help them raise money to help combat drunk driving.
January 26, 2015
Today I started a Gofundme campaign to raise funds for our search. Hopefully we will be able to raise enough to increase our search efforts. Just because the Marshalls and the police have given up it does not mean I have to. I'm going to do even more if I can get the funding. Go to www.facebook.com/findchrisponce to learn more. Thanks
January 24, 2015
Well, we are officially off the radar now. CNN ran the episodes that they like, (dead guys and guys on the run for 40 years), but this time they did not run the Ponce episode at 1am or pre-empt it. No, instead they did not run it at all. When I found out that they were not going to run his episode last week I attempted to get in touch with the producer at CNN. I asked if they could possibly find room to run Ponce's episode again. My e-mails went unanswered.
January 11, 2015
I cannot believe what I am witnessing. CNN re-aired two episodes of "The Hunt with John Walsh of Shane Miller and Kevin Stoesser, (both of them dead) and when the episode for Christopher Ponce came at 10pm they went instead to a protracted coverage of Air Asia's black boxes. They didn't' break in and say that they had found them, they had to use up the entire time slot with information that they have already gone over. This whole thing is getting very agravating. Ponce's family is getting exactly what they want. People are just giving up. I don't hear from the US Marshalls any more, I don't hear from the prosecuting attorney any more, I don't hear from the victim's advocates any more. I don't hear from the Sherriff's office any more. They don't re-air Ponce's episode any more, and when they do it is at 1am.
January 8, 2015
Another year. There is going to be another airing of Ponce's episode on 1/11/15 at 10pm on CNN. Maybe this time someone will reccognize him. My plea for someone to come forward with information about Ponce's hobbies, likes, habits either fell on deaf ears, or this asshole really does not have any friends. You would think that someone who knows his parents or family would come forward to offer information. But maybe they are just as big of an _ _ _ _ _ _ _ as him. I bet they are. They probably do not have any real friends either. I can't prove it, but I still think they helped him get away. He's too lazy, high, drunk and stupid to do it alone.
Please forward this to everyone you know. Facebook people you know and tell them. Tell people that you know in other countries. Wherever he is there is someone living next door to him. There is someone living across the street from him. We just have to keep broadcasting his picture everywhere.

After the re-airing of "The Hunt" episode, I just want to say a couple of things. First and foremost, I want to thank all of you who contacted the site and have put us in your prayers. Secondly, I want to once again ask the people who know Christopher Ponce to contact the site and tell us things that may help. To this day, no one has come forward to let us know things like what his favorite hobbies are, what his favorite drink is, what type of clubs does he frequent, etc. etc.... You can keep your identity secret if you want or I will keep it secure if you wish.

Today CNN will re-air the Ponce episode of "The Hunt with John Walsh".
I was very upset the other day to see that yet another drunk wrongway driver killed two people. At least when the reporter went to the drunk's door a relative said they were sorry for what happened. Ponce's family never did that. They do not care about anyone but themselves. After we catch Christopher, they will pay for that. Not showing sympathy for a loss like that is very hurtful. That hurt will be returned. I hope the family who experienced such great loss gets the justice they deserve. Please do not let that monster out on house arrest too.

CNN will re-air the Ponce episode on December 27th at 10 pm. Encourage everyone you know to view it and share it online. the more people that see it the better odds we have that someone will recognize him. Wherever he is there is someone living next door to him. We have to get this in front of them. We know that Christopher and those that know where he is are not the kind of people to do the right thing. In fact, they don't know what those words mean. They are animals. Lets hunt these animals down.
December 10, 2014
The holidays just are not the same anymore. We still get not get into the holiday spirit without William there to enjoy it. When I find Christopher he won't be happy anymore either. I hope he has a miserable experience in prison.

Two more scumbags are in the bag as a result of "The Hunt with John Walsh". TV show. Child molester Kevin Stoeser received the only cure for pediphilia. He was found dead in the woods. Genevieve Kelly turned herself in today, giving in to the heat. The list is getting shorter. The fugitive known as Christopher Ponce will get his day too. It's just a matter of time.

I'm starting to get tired of spending all of my time on the coputer and never hearing what has come of it. You know the old saying about being a mushroom? Well, that's the way I feel. I want to get more aggressive with this. I think that the feds are all tied up looking for ISIS sympathizers and are too busy for looking for fugitives.

We went out last night with some of Williams friends to mark what would have been Williams 23rd birthday. We went to their favorite bowling alley. They used to go on Thursdays from 10pm to 1am to do glow bowling. It was good to see Williams friends. We put a picture of William on the table and we all bowled, ate pizza and talked about William. This is the third year now that we have to talk about William in the past tense. It sucks. I bet Christopher's parents send him his birthday presents in some secret fashion. Or contact him through third parties using phony names. I hope they trip up and the information leads to his capture. Once we can prove that contact, I will see them both in jail. That's not a threat. That's a promise! The monster that they created and are helping will someday lead to their misery. Their shame will happen very soon. I hope that everyone sees this and figures out who his parents are and boycott their practices forever.

I just have to verify some things and then I can let the world know.
October 2, 2014
This secret is burning a hole in my pocket. I am just going to have to tell people. This person derserves the humiliation.

September 30, 2014
I have been trying for some time to figure out how I can let the world in on a secret that I know. It is killing me to know this and not tell anyone. I want to make sure people see the depravity and the self - serving nature of this person. I want them to see that this person does not care about the law. Soon I will figure out just how to explain it. I believe that people have to know.
September 28, 2014
It looks like "The Hunt with John Walsh" is now over. We can only hope that the show is picked up for another season and potentially air the episode on Ponce again. With the two successes this season it looks good for another season. We could use more leads. He is not going to get away with this.
September 21, 2014
Another week. CNN not rerunning the segment this week again. No calls from anyone. I'm thinking that the effort that was made in the past is not being made now. I don't hear from anyone in law enforcement anymore. I am going to have to step it up some more I guess.
September 14, 2014
They just re-aired the episode of Christopher Ponce on CNN. I am manning the web page fielding contact forms from viewers. Thank you for all of the well wishes and prayers. Each time this airs we are learning more about Ponce and his family. We are still looking for the places that Christopher liked to hang out at. What is his favorite bar or bars. His favorite nightclubs etc... In short, where can we go to find people who may have information. They may not even know that it is important. To them it may seem trivial, but put in with what we already know it could be just what we need to link everything together. We are still looking and will always be looking.
September 11, 2014
Some people seem to think that Christopher Ponce is out of the country. I think that he is too weak, as evidenced by his addictions, to leave the apron strings of Mommy. He is like the baby that will not eat in favor of Mommy's milk. He likes Mommy milk. He would crawl back into the womb if he could. He needs his Mommy, and his Daddy, and his Sissies to take care of him and clean up after his screw ups. Even if they sent him away he would find a way to come crawling back. If he has a surrogate Mommy somewhere right now they will soon tire of this high maintenance baby. They will be the one to turn him in and collect the rewards. He can't help but piss people off. He is a taker. He is user. He is an abuser.

William's birthday is coming up soon. I really don't know how it will go this year. I want to plan something but I do not know what. I already feel like a wreck. This is not getting any easier. We have to find this punk. I want to see him punished. I want to see the people helping him punished. I am going to push real hard to make that happen. I am going to take all of this pain that I have felt for the last 25 months and transfer it to them and never let up. Why should we be the only one's suffering when they caused all of this.
September 1, 2014
It is common for someone who loses a loved one to say that they think about the one they lost every day. This evening I tried to think of just how many times I thought about William today. I could not even put a number on it. I think about him all the time, every day. I thought about the various conversations I had today and with whom, and each time the thought of William was there. I miss him so much. This is the time of year when all of the hunting shows start their new seasons and William and I would watch them. Usually we would laugh and say yeh right!!. That has to be a canned hunt or something because REAL DEER don't act like that!! We would have a good laugh and then talk about strategies we wanted to try that year on our hunts. It has been hard to even get psyched up for hunting season. Wade Jr and I have started some new hunting and fishing things for us and that helps. Fishing the canals in the everglades this year with him and my buddy Pete was very cathartic for me. This year we have'nt planned anything, (he is busy planning his wedding and I totally understand), but I will come up with something. Maybe duck hunting.

I recently heard from someone who knows Christopher well. They would not give me a name or contact information (that's ok). They informed me that they spoke to him regularly while he was under house arrest. This person, (I don't even know if they are male or female), said that while Christopher was under house arrest he smoked pot and spice almost every day. He could not drink because of the alcohol monitor so he smoked to get his buzz. I have a question about that. If he was not allowed to leave the house, then how was he getting his dope? Was his mother getting it for him? His Dad? His sisters? A friend? There were others living there too. Was it mom's boyfriend getting it for him? The boyfriends son? Was it the person who contacted me and that's how they know? How in the world was this addict getting his dope, and why would any decent human being help him get it? These people baffle me.
August 22, 2014
We are a little down now. CNN has stopped rerunning episodes and our number of contact forms have all but stopped. We know that there are people out there that have information that we need in order to find Christopher Ponce. It hurts to know that people would protect a piece of *&!! like Ponce. You would think that these people would want to do the "right" thing. We are definitely not dealing with decent Christian people here. To them, doing the "right" thing is to try to get away with something instead of taking responsibility for it. Update: I have been in contact with the producer of the show and he said he is working to correct that now. Thank you!!!
If there is someone out there who wants to do the right thing, please contact us. We are just hoping that someone in the know will do the right thing and turn Christopher Ponce in. He needs to be held responsible for his actions for once in his life. In the long run he will become a better man for it. Right now he is not a man at all.
August 14, 2014
We are glad that CNN keeps airing reruns of their show. Each time they do we get additional viewers who have not seen the show before. Each time it airs we get more contacts to this site. Our network is expanding. That's great. Everyone keep your eyes open. Our next phase of action is coming.
August 9, 2014
William was not with us last week to celebrate our 28th anniversary. We always celebrate with the whole family. Third anniversary without William. It's been a week since the show aired. It's hard not knowing what the Marshalls have received in the form of tips due to the show. I hope they had some good ones. Thanks again to all of the well wishers who have contacted this site.
August 5, 2014
We have been very busy since the show aired. Thank you to everyone who sent their prayers, showed their support and offered well wishes. Thank you also to those who offered information and tips. We appreciate all of you.
August 4, 2014
I have been very busy. I was up all night after CNN showed the Christopher Ponce episode 4 times last night. I fielded several dozen e-mails. Mostly well-wishers. Thank you everyone for your kind words and thoughts, as well as your prayers. I hope the Marshals get some good tips. If you know something about Christopher's whereabouts please call "The Hunt" at 1-866-The Hunt. 1-866-843-4868
8 days after being on "The Hunt with John Walsh" Charles Mozdir is shot dead in New York. Enough said. Christopher will be featured this Sunday at 9pm
Another suspect found dead. Shane Miller from episode 1 on July 13th was found dead in northern California. 4 suspects aired 2 dead. That's one hell of a batting average.
August 3, 2014.
We just watched the episode on Christopher Ponce. I am getting many emails right now. A lot of well wishers but some are interesting. I bet the Marshall's office is getting even more because of the reward.
August 3, 2014
Two more interviews today and two more tomorrow live on CNN. The exposure will be everywhere. The Marshalls are in place at the call center, and we are ready here. Let's go get him!!!!!
August 2, 2014
More news coverage last night. We have more national and international interviews on Monday morning after the airing of the show. I want to get some of the people who contacted the website who went to school with Ponce to do interviews. They have said that he has a "creepy personality" We want them to explain how he acts around other people because he probably changed his appearance but will not change his behavior. We also need any cell phone video that any of you have of him so we can use his voice recordings. He won't change his voice.
July 31, 2014
My family is on pins and needles waiting for the show to air. Finally, the world will see what a piece of crap Ponce is. Everyone is ready. The US Marshalls have set up their call center, I will be manning the website for tips all night long and forwarding them to the US Marshalls. We are ready! Hopefully we will have a quick capture on him too. Don't run or fight them Christopher!!! You've seen what happens to scumbags who do that.
July 30, 20114
Check out the CNN link to see the expanded update. This should be the angle that will be taken on the segment. We have not been given a preview so we are not sure how they are going to present it. We are on pins and needles.
I woke up at 5:15 am this morning and turned on my computer to check the website as I do every morning. I was shocked when I saw a notice from the host server that my incoming mailbox was almost full. I opened it up and found 374 contacts to our website. All of them between 8pm and 1am. Some were well wishers, most were people who were upset that I gave in and took down my previous posts. Some told me that I have a right to speak my mind and others said that I had to have someplace to "Get things of my chest". I responded to each one. It took hours. I actually had to create a word document and cut and paste it for my response just to save time. I am embarrassed to tell to you all that I used a stock response, but I mean every word of it. I am touched that so many people are keeping track of our site. You brought tears to my eyes with some of your touching comments. Thank you so very much for your support. Please tell everyone you know about the show on Sunday at 9pm. If you know someone in another country, please let them know as CNN is worldwide.
On July 19, 2012 my wife and I lost our son William. It was the most painful day of our lives. That pain and suffering continues to this day. Today July 28, 2014, I experienced the most pain and anguish that I have since that day. I have removed many of my posts. I apologize to anyone who felt threatened by my use of words in my search for MY SON'S KILLER!!!!!!!! I guess my grief stricken, but cathartic outpouring on my own website must be trumped. Please, If my pain and anguish upset you, fell free to STOP READING IT!!!!!! How dare you act like you're the victim!!!

Yesterday was two years since the crash. My wife and I watched CNN's "The Hunt with John Walsh" tonight. We can't wait until August 3rd when they air Christopher Ponce. We are telling everyone we know to put it on their facebook page to watch "The Hunt with John Walsh" on CNN, August 3rd at 9pm.
