C.W. Brown.



C.W. Brown, detective, and part of Will Fritz’s Robbery and Homicide Department. We see him a fair a bit in the film and still footage inside the DPD.

Here he is in front of Dallas Morning News journalist Kent Biffle.

He also makes a report about the shooting of Oswald.

All this looks kosher, until I came across a document that seems to raise a question or two.

In the FBI document below from Nov 22nd Hank Farmer states he sees the bullet impacting JFK’s head first and then after that notices that John Connally is shot in his back. And he is of the opinion that these two shots came from opposite directions. And finally Farmer makes it clear he will not talk to the DPD! I wonder why?

The scribbles at the bottom of this document state that

  • “This man interviewed at Dal PD 11/22/63 by buagent and PD detective.”
  • C Brown is the lead for this matter.

Yet there is no mention of Hank Farmer anywhere in the DPD reports or any trace of C.W. Brown’s interview with him.
