The warrant said, Kelley was upset after she found out her boyfriend was married. The suspect admitted to authorities he used a fake name, Kevin Brown, when talking to her.

He said the next steps in finding her are “again it … it would be begin collecting all evidence, electronic, digital evidence and speaking to any person who may have been acquainted with either the suspect or the missing person.”
