Today marks one year since Eric Garner died in a confrontation with police.

The solemn anniversary will be marked with several events, including a remembrance ceremony in Manhattan this evening.

Earlier in the day, a vigil was hosted by Garner's family at the site of his death on Staten Island where loved ones released a dove in his honor.  

"It's been an emotional roller coaster, one dealing with his death, and then dealing with no justice and still dealing with no justice. So, it's not a really good feeling all the time. You know, he left me blessed with her," said Jewel Miller, the mother of Garner's daughter.

"It's very touching, I started crying. It made me think of him, he's up in heaven and he's got his wings," said Lucinda Naranjo, a friend of Garner.

For the officer at the center of the case, the investigations are far from over.

The NYPD is still guarding Officer Daniel Pantaleo's home on Staten Island. Sources say he has received several death threats

Officer Pantaleo was caught on video putting Garner in a chokehold that led to his death.    

The NYPD stripped Pantaleo of his gun and he's now in a desk job.

The Justice Department has been investigating whether he and other officers should face federal civil rights charges. The NYPD is holding off on any departmental action until that probe is completed.

Also, a state appeals court is deciding whether to make the grand jury's minutes in the case public. The public advocate has argued for that.    

"The substance of their testimony, the questions by the prosecutor, the interpretation of law, what were the charges," Public Advocate Letitia James said.

Reverend Al Sharpton is planning a march at the U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn on Saturday to try to pressure the feds to bring charges against Officer Pantaleo.
