Case summary by Jody Ewing

After dinner on Tuesday, August 31, 1954, eight-year-old Jimmy Bremmers went to his friend Joey Hamel's house two doors down from the Bremmers home on Sioux City's west side. Jimmy's parents had gone to lay brick for the basement of their new home, and though Jimmy usually helped, this night he'd stayed behind to go visit his friend.

Jimmy suffered from a speech impediment and didn't have a lot of close friends; his closest companion was his small black and white dog named Specks.

At 8 p.m., just as Life with Father began to air on television, Jimmy, along with Joey's cousin Steve Counterman, 13, left the Hamel house to head for their respective homes. When Steve started up a hill for his home, he looked back and saw Jimmy standing alone near a tree by the Hamel's porch. It was the last time anyone saw Jimmy Bremmers alive.

A county crew building a snow fence in a pasture north of Sioux City stumbled upon Jimmy's remains September 29.
