‘He’s not human’: $20K reward offered for man who shot mother in front of kids in cemetery


It’s been almost one week since Joana Peca was shot and killed, and police said they are still searching for the murder suspect: her boyfriend. Now US Marshals and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are joining the manhunt – and offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to his capture. St. Pete police detectives identified 38-year-old Benjamin Robert Williams – a.k.a. "Bambi" – as the suspect following Saturday’s deadly shooting. They said Williams and 27-year-old Peca were in a relationship and had a baby together. Police said Peca was holding their 4-month-old infant when Williams shot her in the face multiple times. Her older child, a 4-year-old boy, was sitting in the backseat when it happened. When officers arrived, Peca was dead inside her vehicle. Both children were uninjured, but "terrified at what had just happened," police said at the time. The shooting happened outside Woodlawn Memorial Gardens on 60th Street South after 5:30 p.m. Saturday. The victim's mother, Eleni Peca, said her daughter went to the cemetery because Williams had asked her to come visit where his sister was buried. When asked if she had a message for Williams, Eleni Peca replied, "He's not human." FOX 13 Tampa Bay brings you the important videos like breaking news, Tampa Bay weather, and local stories.
