Christopher Ponce descriptive word: Manipulative junkie.
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 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 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.

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.

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.
I am trying to put together a network of people to actively spread Christopher Ponce's picture and story around the world. I already have many people from around the world who have contacted us with well wishes and information, but I want people are willing to spend just a little of their time "spreading the word in their state, province, or country. If you are interested please go to the "Tell Us What You Know" page on this site and fill out the information form. You must fill out all fields. We want to make sure that christopher or friends and family cannot get into the network and use info to help themselves. Basically we need you to just post his wanted poster with contact information on as many sites as possible. Some translation will be needed if English is not the official language of your country. When you fill out the form use the word "network" in the subject line. Thank you. Update: The network will be a big hit. We have several members already from all over the country. I need people from other countries to help too. Let's get his mugshot out all over the world. I have a big world map just itching for more pins to be put in it.

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.

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.

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.

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 Marshalls 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.

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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.

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!!!
