On his Facebook page, police killer Norman Walter Raddatz posted about bylaw tickets he considered "constant harassment" by "taxation pirates," railed against the courts and government, called homosexuals "sodomites," and police "pigs."
He maintained that the capitalized spelling of a person's name on government and bank documents was part of a pervasive corporate conspiracy. "They will have to drag me to court by force. I will not voluntarily enter a corrupt admiralty court," Raddatz, 42, wrote on the social media site after receiving a bylaw ticket last summer.
Raddatz is the only suspect in the shooting death of 35-year-old police Const. Daniel Woodall in Edmonton on Monday night. Sgt. Jason Harley survived after being shot in the back. The body of a man believed to be Raddatz was found in the basement of the home after the shooting and a large fire Monday night. An autopsy is being done to confirm his identity and cause of death.
