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.
It has now been over a year since I lost my son, my hunting buddy, my fishing buddy, my co-worker. My heart still hurts from it all. The stress from it all is now effecting my health. I want this coward behind bars. I want those who have helped him behind bars. I want justice. You can help. Please help us. Tell us what you know.
I have listened with interest about the capture of Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins, the two killers who walked out of jail with phoney paperwork. It turns out a friend turned them in. I thought to myself that there are people out there that know where Christopher is. I wish they had the courage, integrity, and moral uprightness to notify authorities as to where Christopher is. Many of us are still hurting and need closure. I myself pray at least once a day for William and closure. I pray for my wife and Williams brother. This has been very tough on all of us. I pray that someone will help us and turn in Christopher so we can get justice for William.
Our family wants to thank the many people who have offered information so far. Please, if you think of anything else share it with us. We will keep your identity out of it. We still need to know more about his hobbies and pasttimes. Thank you to our volunteers who are working hard to data mine for us. WE WILL GET THIS GUY! It is just a matter of when.
