The pictures to the left are that of Cristopher (Chris) Ponce. He is a repeat DUI offender. On July 19, 2012 Christopher Ponce was driving 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 Christopher Ponce cut off his ankle bracelet and escaped his house arrest.
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. Please help us find William's killer. Christopher Ponce has had numerous violations in the past and will hurt or kill again if we do not get him off the street. He is charged with multiple offenses including vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter. I will post additional information as I get it. Thank you for your help.

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. The show is very similar to America's Most Wanted. I hope Christopher's family is very proud of the monster that they have created. Since CNN is seen worldwide, on August 3rd at 9pm the world will see their shame!!!! Tell everyone you know. Put it on your facebook page. Put it on Reddit. Tweet it. Fancy it. Put it on all of your social media pages. We want everyone watching. Especially those people who are helping him. And to them,..... YOUR NEXT.

It has now been more than a year since Christopher Ponce decided to add "coward" to the long list of decriptions for himself. It also adds one more wound to our family. We have not been able experience joy for joy's sake since Ponce killed William. Imagine having something happen and feeling happy about it but then almost immediately thinking, "I wish William was here for this." Joy for Joy's sake is gone.
Now since the coward left, all I can do is search. I can't work, I can't do anything but search. When I try to do something else I feel like I am cheating William and his memory. When I go somewhere, all I can do is look at faces, hoping that somehow or somewhere I will see him. I can't go to the mall or a ballgame without searching, looking, for the worthless piece of "you know what" that killed my son. I will search for him until we find him. WE WILL find him!!! When we do it will not stop there. I will work backward and find out everyone who helped him and how they helped. I will then start a campaign for their arrest and prosecution. I will not rest until everyone involved is in jail. During the most recent news interview on ABC Action News they asked me if there was anything that I wanted to say to Ponce. They pointed the camera at me and all I could think of was to say "Man up Chris. The longer your gone the worse it will be. You can't run forever, and I will never stop." That's what I said. Here is what I thought. "I'll find you Christopher, and when I do, you and anyone who helped you are going to rot in jail." For what you and your accomplices have done to me and my family, I will never stop trying to see you all in jail.

On Saturday it will be two years without William. I keep having people tell me that "It will get better". I don't see it. For the last two years it has been getting worse. I miss William so much that I can't put words together to explain it. Before, I would say that I missed his hugs, his smile, his laugh, our deep conversations, etc.. , but now I can't even begin to explain the pain. It isn't something that I can point to and say, I miss that. I have lived with this pain for so long now that it is part of me. The rage is part of me. The anxiety is part of me. I feel them coming and I just prepare for it, like I would for the hiccups, or a sneeze, or a yawn. When I feel anxiety coming, I pace or rock back and forth. I fidget with my hands or something. I make involuntary moans or sighs, and people ask me," what's wrong." I say, "nothing, why" and they say that, " I sounded like I was in pain." I say I am. When I feel rage, I try to get away or go somewhere quiet and wait it out, or I go out back and I shoot an air rifle in the back yard. I won't tell you what I use as a target, but I bet you can guess what it is. I have gotten so angry at times that I have broken two air rifles by pumping them so hard that I break the forearms off or the air mechanism inside. My newest air rifle is one that you only cock once so I don't go crazy on it. The problem is that it is single shot and I can't shoot as fast with it. It takes longer to obliterate the target. No, it is not getting better.
My affliction of face watching is now even bothering my TV watching. Whenever there's a crowd on tv, like during the World Cup, or Tour De France, or the Allstar game, I watch faces in the crowd for a possible siting of Ponce. Son-of-a-bitch! I can't even watch TV without thinking of that bastard. If anyone out there knows where he is, Please tell the authorities. This has to end.
