EDMONTON - The widow of an Edmonton police officer killed one year ago says she's thankful people continue to support her.

Claire Woodall says she won't be moving back to England to be with family.

She says Edmonton has become even more of a home for her and her two young sons since the death of her husband.

Const. Daniel Woodall, who was 35, was shot while trying to serve an arrest warrant on June 8.

Norman Raddatz, a 42-year-old refrigerator repairman, was being investigated for anti-Semitic bullying when officers showed up at his home and he started shooting through the front door.

The shooting remains under investigation and Claire Woodall says she still has questions about what happened.
