Pair of light-brown patent leather women's heels. There is dried blood residue around the back of the left shoe.
Fiduciary Trust employee Linda Raisch-Lopez began her evacuation on the 97th floor of the South Tower after seeing flames erupt from the North Tower. When she reached the debris-strewn World Trade Center Plaza, she began walking north. Not until she was in line to board a ferry home to New Jersey did Raisch-Lopez notice that blood from her cut and blistered feet had stained her heels.
