Years later, Jim Towner told me that Brehm was crying almost uncontrollably as he spoke and that's what drew his attention. Brehm was standing with his five-year-old son, Joe, on the south side of Elm Street only a few feet from the Kennedy limousine when the fatal shot was fired.
Brehm was soon taken to the nearby Sheriff's office where he was interviewed on sound film shown on NBC later that day. In later interviews Brehm maintained the shots came from one of the two buildings at the Elm-Houston intersection (the Book Depository and the Dal-Tex). - Gary Mack, Curator
