Ismael "Izzy" Acosta, his wife Angela and children
PORT ST. LUCIE - Nighttime is the most painful part of the day.

Ismael "Izzy" Acosta would get home from work and rock his 6-month old daughter to sleep on the front porch. He and his wife, Angela, would sit there and talk about their days.

When he didn't come home the night of Saturday, April 3, Angela knew something was wrong.

She waited for hours, calling his phone but not getting an answer.

Around 1:30 a.m. Easter morning, Angela heard a car door slam and saw a Port St. Lucie Police cruiser in her driveway.

"They were very straightforward," she says. "They said,'Are you Angela Acoata or is your husband Ismael Acosta?' And I said yes and they said he's been killed."

Izzy Acosta, 28, had been coming home from his job at Goodfellas Pizza in Port St. Lucie.

He was riding his motorcycle south on Floresta Drive when a car turned into his path at West Virginia Avenue.

Acosta, who wasn't wearing a helmet, was thrown from his bike. He died on impact.

Port St. Lucie Police are waiting for toxicology results, but they believe the driver of the car was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Has anyone heard if the driver of the car was indeed under the influence? Since the papers haven't said who was driving the car I was wondering if the driver was an illegal with no
driver's license.

I worked with Izzy for six years. He died on my wedding day. Needless to say, I'm forever tied to this man. Loved you Izzy. No justice from the judge. They revoked her jail time. Unfrigginbelievable.
