David Kellermann, the acting CFO of Freddie Mac was found dead at his suburban Washington home early Wednesday.
From the Wall Street Journal:
The acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, David Kellermann, was found dead at his suburban Washington home early Wednesday.
Officer Shelley Broderick of the Fairfax County Police Department in Virginia said there were “no signs of foul play” when police found Mr. Kellermann’s body after responding to a call made at 4:48 a.m. ET. Mr. Kellermann was 41 years old.
Mr. Kellermann’s wife told local police he committed suicide, local television station WUSA reported, citing sheriff’s deputies in Northern Virginia’s Fairfax County.
The police department would only say the case is under “active investigation.” Freddie Mac officials didn’t have an immediate statement. In a prepared statement, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said, “On behalf of the Treasury family, we are deeply saddened by the news this morning of David Kellermann’s death. Our deepest sympathies are with his family and his colleagues at Freddie Mac during this difficult time.”

i like how freddie macs first comment was to tell everyone theres no connection between the apparent suicide and the sec probe. no offer of condolences of anything the like. how are we supposed to trust a business with our money when they cant even think of the families of the people who work for them. while im all for beating the crap out of and sending to prison any one of the many scumbags responsible for the bad business decisions that *ucked everybody, else i wish death on no one.
it sounds like Kellermann had a misguided sense of guilt about the whole Freddie Mac fiasco since he came into his position after the company was already well on the way to financial meltdown
