Meet The Shirtless FBI Agent From The Petraeus Scandal

Frederick W. Humphries II, 47, according to the New York Times.

This is Fred Humphries, an FBI agent and the newest player in the ongoing drama surrounding David Petraeus’ affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell. Above, he’s pictured in a 2000 Seattle Times story about his involvement in investigating the millennium attack.

Humphries handled Tampa socialite Jill Kelley’s initial complaint that she was receiving harassing emails about her relationship with Petraeus, a family friend. The FBI would later discover those emails came from Broadwell, Petraeus’ mistress.

Humphries has also been accused of sending shirtless photos to Kelley. But the agent’s lawyer told the Times that the photo — a joke image of Humpries posing with dummies — was sent years before Kelley complained about the emails.

“It was sent as part of a larger context of what I would call social relations in which the families would exchange numerous photos of each other,” said Lawrence Berger of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association.
