Since the Petraeus scandal broke we’ve all been asking — who’s the mystery guy who allegedly sent those shirtless photos to Jill Kelley? We now have our answer. Here’s CNN.


“This FBI agents name is Frederick Humphries. He was the agent originally contacted by Jill Kelley over those supposedly harassing emails.  Now linked to Paula Broadwell. Ahhh.. Hope you got that.”


Yea, just barely. Let’s clear things up a bit.

So, Jill Kelley reportedly receives harassing emails from a person whom the media has reported to be Paula Broadwell -- Petraeus’ alleged mistress. Kelly reports the emails to her FBI friend who is now disclosed to be Frederick Humphries.


According to Gawker, Humphries then referred the case to an FBI cyber crimes unit, which began an investigation. Apparently, that wasn't enough for the agent, who reportedly grew "obsessed" with the case — and, oh by the way, he reportedly sent shirtless photos of himself to Kelley. For that, media outlets have said, he was banned from the case.


Whew.
The 47-year-old Humphries joined the FBI in 1996. Aside from the shirtless email pictures— CBS News reports he’s kind of a badass.


“He is a member of the SWAT team, he cut his teeth on the Ahmed Ressam case the millennium bombing plot. He’s also got a medal, the directors award, for a shootout the Medill Airport’s front gate.”


According to The New York Times, a former colleague describes Humphries as, “…a passionate kind of guy…He’s kind of an obsessive type. If he locked his teeth onto something, he’d be a bulldog.”


The New York Daily News reports Humphries claims the shirtless photo had nothing to do with Kelley.


“…he said that he and his wife ran in the same social circles as Kelley and her husband. The shirtless photo, he said, was taken years ago as a joke and included him ‘posing with a couple of dummies.’”


Humphries’ lawyer maintains his client did nothing wrong and says the agent should not be disciplined.
