U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base is saying very little about the Tampa woman who brought to light the Petraeus sex scandal.
She lives on Bayshore Boulevard just a few miles from the base and had hosted the former leader of MacDill's CENTCOM at several social events.
Jill Kelley, the mother of three children and wife of a surgeon, is described as a socialite, a social liaison to MacDill and as a family friend to retired Gen. David Petraeus now former CIA director.
While investigating Kelley's complaints about the threatening emails from Patraeus' mistress - FBI agents noted that Kelley had received more than 20,000 pages of emails from Gen. John Allen - the current commander of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. Those "potentially inappropriate" emails were handed over to the Department of Defense for review. In a response to reporter queries, CENTCOM emailed a brief response. "Mrs. Kelley has no official position with U.S. Central Command. She is a volunteer and a private citizen, not an employee; because of this, and because there is an ongoing investigation, we have no additional information to provide."
