Mrs. JOSEPH EDDIE DEAN, 7727 Boarden Lane, advised as follows:
She is employed by The Macmillan Company on the third floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building, 411 Elm Street.
At approximately 12:40 p.m., on November 22, 1963, she and some other employees in the building were standing on the steps of the building facing Elm Street, when a motorcade in which President JOHN F. KENNEDY and Governor JOHN CONNALLY of Texas were riding, was passing by.
President Kennedy had just looked in their direction and waved when she heard a rifle shot. Shortly thereafter, she heard another rifle shot and then a third. During these moments, she observed President KENNEDY slump down into the car. After the first or second shot, she observed President KENNEDY reach to the back of his neck just before he slumped down.
When she realized the shots came from above her, she ran out into the street, but did not look up at that time. Everyone was running in various directions and some were falling to the ground, as if to avoid being shot. Everyone was very excited, including herself.
She returned to the steps of the building and met Mrs. MADIE B. REESE, her office manager, and then accompanied Mrs. REESE to the National Bank of Commerce, making a deposit.
After viewing photographs of LEE HARVEY OSWALD on television, she could not recall ever having seen him before. She could furnish no further pertinent information.
