Did a Ghost Help Investigators Sifting Through the Rubble on 9/11?


A retired NYPD officer claims in a new book that he, along with several other workers charged with sifting through the rubble left as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, were visited by a ghostly lady who he thought “was trying to help us.”

The ghost, according to retired Lt. Frank Marra, was an African-American woman dressed in similar clothing used by Red Cross workers, and appeared to be carrying a tray of sandwiches.

Marra didn’t think much of the rare sightings of the woman, until a crime scene detective independently asked him about his identical visions.

A retired NYPD officer is claiming in a new book that he, among others, repeatedly observed a ghostly figure at a New York City landfill, where authorities and first responders were sifting through the rubble following the 9/11 attacks.

This apparition was reportedly observed while he was working at the Fresh Kills Landfill in Staten Island, according to the New York Post.  In a new book titled, “From Landfill to Hallowed Ground,” retired Lt. Frank Marra, 48, claims that he saw what appeared to be an African American woman dressed in white.

“I thought she was trying to help us, being first responders,” said Marra, who managed the portion of the landfill that dealt with impounded vehicles from the World Trade Center.

Marra said that he subsequently buried the memory of the woman until he was working on the book in 2013 and another police officer mentioned the apparition; he said that the memory suddenly hit him like “a ton of bricks.”

Marra stated in a press release that the Staten Island landfill contained the ashes of so many deceased Americans that it became a “holy ground” that could have led to the appearance of the apparition.

A psychic medium was quoted as saying the woman might have been a “soul collector,” tasked with helping guide spirits to the afterlife.

What do you think? Is it possible that a ghost tried coming to the aid of investigators trying to bring peace of mind to the victims of the deceased?
