Petraeus scandal: Second woman identified

International

Meanwhile, Kelley asked for privacy on Sunday as she hosted a lavish birthday party for one of her children on the front lawn of her mansion-style home near MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

She declined to speak to news crews gathered outside.

More than 100 adults and children attended the party.

A source close to the Petraeus family confirmed that Kelley, and her husband, Scott Kelley, a Tampa cancer surgeon, became friends when Petraeus was stationed at MacDill from 2008 until 2010 .

The couples stayed in touch, later meeting in Washington when the Kelleys visited relatives.

MAILS STARTED IN MAY: WSJ

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL reported that the emails Jill Kelley found threatening and harassing began arriving in her inbox in May 2012. She didn't know who sent them.

THE FBI used the emails' metadata footprints to determine the locations they were sent from. They matched the places and established the sender was Paula Broadwell.

THE AGENTS thought they were after potential cybercrime or a leak of classified information, but instead found sexually explicit emails between two lovers.

BY LATE SUMMER, prosecutors and agents alerted senior officials at FBI and the Justice Department, including Attorney General Eric J Holder. In September, Broadwell admitted to the affair.
