Who is Joann Kemp? A resident of Harrison Twp (MI) who once owned a Palm Beach Condo

Joann Marie Kemp (née Whiteley) is a 43-year-old (b. 16 Jul 1968) married, mother of two children.

Since 1994, Joann Kemp and her husband William R. Kemp have lived in a Harrison Township home (38140 Circle Dr., Harrison Township, MI 48045-2815) owned by William. The property currently carries a $262,650 assessed value and suggests a Zestimate of $326,800.

The residence was originally built in 1953 and is currently two stories and 2,603 sq ft. It sits on approximately 1/3 acre and has boat docks with direct access to the property and Lake St Clair.

Palm Beach Co. (FL)
From 1993 through May 1998, William R. and Joann M. Kemp owned a condominium in Palm Beach County, Florida (100 Waterway Dr. S., #201, Lantana, FL 33462). They purchased the unit for $49,000 and sold it for $57,000.

Aliases for Mrs. Kemp are Joann M. Kemp, Joann M. Whiteley, Joanne M. Whiteley, Joanne M. Kemp, Joann Marie Kemp, and Joanne Kemp.

Flint Twp (MI) & Bay Mills Indian Community
The morning of November 3, 2010, a warranty deed was recorded with Genesee County (MI) whereby Norel Enterprises Inc. transferred a 28-acre parcel of undeveloped land in Flint Township (Dutcher Rd. @ Lennon Rd.) to Joann Marie Kemp. 

That afternoon (11.03.2010), a Quitclaim Deed was recorded with Genesee County whereby Joann Kemp had immediately turned around and transferred the same property to the Bay Mills Indian Community. 

No "Consideration" of terms (price of sale) was publicly available for either transaction.  There is an assessed value of $396,000. An online search of public records suggests that Kemp may have acquired the land from Norel for $260,000.

A Warranty Deed was drawn up on the same day (11.03.2010) whereby Kemp granted title to the Flint Township property to the Bay Mills Indian Community, and that document recorded with Genesee County December 17, 2010. Nine months later, leaders of the Bay Mills tribe confirmed they have interest in developing a casino on the site.

Michael Malik/Bay Mills/Harsens Island Connection 
For nearly two decades, Michael Malik (Blue Water Resorts), a would-be developer, has been behind the Bay Mills Indian Community's attempts to locate off-reservation casinos in Michigan. 

During that same period, Malik (Lucky 7 Development/Grande Pointe Development) has also failed to win approvals of various marina development plans for Harsens Island (MI).  Malik  is an Ilitch family agent/business partner with an office in the executive suites of Ilitch Holdings, Inc., at Detroit's Fox Theater.
