FBI Agent Who Took Jill Kelley's Complaint is Identified

The agent has worked on high-profile cases in Tampa.

The FBI agent who took a complaint about "harassing emails" from south Tampa socialite Jill Kelley that sparked former CIA director David Petraeus' affair with his biographer has been identified.

Frederick W. Humphries II, who friends with Kelley, took the anonymous complaint before passing it along, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Once, he sent Kelley a shirtless photo of himself as a joke, according to The Huffington Post.

Before Kelley's complaint last week led to the exposure of the Petraeus scandal with Paula Broadwell, Humphries was best known for his role in the case of University of South Florida student Youssef Megahed, according to the Times.

I think it's a hoot! I live on Bayshore also, so it's like someone I know. South Tampa is like a little village by the sea. Everyone loves a good scandal.

Sharon: I understand. There's been a lot of new developments with it.

How PATHETIC that all the Iraq War Emergency spending was wasted on this bunch and Florida overall. No wonder I got submitted without permission for mil. contractor job vacancies around Tampa. What a bunch of scammers.
