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.

William's birthday went by for a second time without him. We are now facing another Christmas without William. It is not getting easier as some people have told us, at least not for me. I'm his dad, I was supposed to protect him. I miss him every minute of every day. I hug his urn each night before going to bed. It does not help. I watch videos of him just to hear his voice. It does not help.
We have the annual walk for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) coming up on March 21, 2014. MADD has been very supportive to us. Please help us support MADD and go to the MADD website,WWW.WalkLikeMadd.org/tampa. Look for the walking for William AORN 1014 team. If you make your donation to william's team all of the money stays here to help other families that have been victimized by drunk drivers. The help they provide is incredible, and very needed. Thank you.
