Freddie Mac CFO Found Dead

David Kellermann, the acting chief financial officer and senior vice president of Freddie Mac, has apparently committed suicide. Fairfax County Police says the 41-year-old was found at his Hunter Mill Estates home this morning. "We were called from inside the house to come investigate an apparent suicide," a spokesperson said, though refused to add details. "We're not to give you details of the condition of the body, except to say it was an apparent suicide." A final determination that his death was a suicide will come from a medical examiner. According to the Freddie Mac website, Kellermann had been with company for over 16 years and was named acting CFO in September 2008. That was the same month Freddie Mac was placed under conservatorship by the U.S. Treasury as a result of the subprime mortgage crisis.
