Jill Kelley, the Florida woman whose complaint to the FBI may have led to the downfall of CIA Director David Petraeus, has deep Philadelphia roots.
Kelley, 37, hails from a Lebanese family that emigrated to Philadelphia in the mid-1970s.
Her parents, John and Marcelle Khawam, once operated a restaurant in Voorhees, N.J., and still live in Washington Crossing, Bucks County, according to public records. An older brother resides in South Jersey, records suggest.
Kelley emerged Sunday as the woman who contacted the FBI after allegedly receiving threatening emails from Petraeus' biographer, Paula Broadwell, according to the Associated Press and other news outlets. Her complaint to the FBI led investigators to emails that showed Petraeus and Broadwell were having an affair.
