Jill Kelley has been identified as the woman who was threatened in a series of anonymous emails sent by Paula Broadwell, CIA Chief David Petraeus' mistress, the AP is reporting.

Those emails so terrified Kelley that she went to the FBI for protection. Kelly lives in Tampa, Florida with her surgeon husband and their three children.  She works as an unpaid unpaid social liaison to U.S. Central Command -- the military headquarters based at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa that oversees operations in the Middle East, which is where she met Petraeus and his wife Holly.

As RadarOnline.com reported, the agency tracked the emails back to Broadwell, and then stumbled into thousands of messages sent between her and Petraeus. Some of those messages were sexually explicit, including one now famous message that referenced "sex under the desk."

Broadwell, a married mother of two and U.S. Army vet, met Petraeus in 2006 when she was a researcher at Harvard and he spoke at the University. Her biography, All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, came out this February.

It's unclear when her affair with Petraeus started and ended, but sometime in the months immediately after he became CIA Chief in September, 2011, she apparently decided that Jill Kelley had gotten too close to him.

Her emails to Kelley, an attractive younger brunette, warned  “I know what you did,” “back off” and “stay away from my guy,” according to The New York Post source indicating Broadwell believed she was in a love triangle.

Petraeus resigned as CIA Chief on Friday, confessing to his infidelity.

“After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Petraeus said in his statement. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation.”

Neither Holly Petraeus or Paula Broadwell have commented on the scandal.
