Former officer claims she saw angels at Flight 93

Woman has PTSD linked to her role in the investigation of the Sept. 11 terror attacks

PITTSBURGH — A former FBI employee with post-traumatic stress disorder linked to her role in the investigation of the Sept. 11 terror attacks has written a book about seeing legions of angels guarding the Pennsylvania site where a hijacked airliner crashed.

Lillie Leonardi was a Pittsburgh-area police officer before working for the FBI. She says she wrote her book, "In the Shadow of a Badge: A Spiritual Memoir" to encourage people dealing with PTSD and those who continue to look for comfort and answers about the terrorist attacks that day.

Leonardi, now a 56-year-old divorced grandmother, says she's convinced she saw the angels. But what she's questioning in her book is why she was allowed to see them.
