Marci Kitchen's boyfriend Joshua Pearlston, any relation to local attorney Mel Pearlston?

So, after media pressure, some names are released. 

There were comments Marcia Kitchen's boyfriend, Josh, was the son of a local lawyer.

Mel Pearlston is a local lawyer. If he is watching out for Joshua, and if Joshua is his son, would make sense why Mr. Benjamin Okin would be a lawyer for another party.

How many of the other rumors are fact?


Checked the court computer today and there is a case of "dissolution with child" between M. Kitchen and J. Kitchen.

A myrelatives.com site lists a Joshua W. Pearlston as a relative of Mel Pearlston.
I also have verification from other sources that he is Mel Peterson's son.

Marcia Kitchen, facebook name Marci Marz.
