    A Connecticut woman whose son died in the Sept. 11 attacks at the World Trade Center said she's upset the Oscar-winning movie "Zero Dark Thirty" used a recording of his last words without her permission.

    Mary Fetchet of New Canaan told CBS News and the Daily News this week that she was shocked the filmmakers didn't ask if they could use the voicemail her son, Bradley Fetchet, left on her phone while he was on the 89th floor of the World Trade Center's south tower.

    Sony Pictures Entertainment said in a statement that the filmmakers contacted several relatives of 9/11 victims about using the voice recordings.
