He left Constable Flora unconscious and fled the scene. Constable Flora regained consciousness and called for assistance. He was transported to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The suspect was apprehended shortly after the shooting. The car which was wrecked had been stolen by the juvenile earlier in the day.

The 17 year-old suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Today you would have been 91....I find myself often thinking..."what if" this or that. Today I wonder what type of 91 year old you would have been. That's all I can do it think it because of the act of Brian Woodcock. So instead of maybe coming to your house this evening & having supper with you I sit behind a computer screen & keyboard to tell you Happy Birthday! Painful yes, but today is your day.

Love you Pa,
