The acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac was found dead in his home Wednesday morning of an apparent suicide, Fairfax, Va., police have confirmed.
Kellermann, 41, was named acting chief financial officer in September 2008 and was a member of the company's leadership team reporting directly to CEO David M. Moffett, who resigned last month.
Sources said Kellerman had a reputation at Freddie Mac as "the answer man."
"Kellermann was a behind-the-scenes guy who never showed up on anyone's radar until he was appointed (acting) CFO last September. He had a reputation of being a straight shooter with high ethical standards," said Guy Cecala, publisher of Inside Mortgage Finance, a mortgage trade publication that covers Freddie Mac.
Freddie Mac Interim CEO John Koskinen issued a statement Wednesday that the "Freddie Mac family is truly saddened" by the news.
1. Hung himself because he found out he was probably complacent in the wrong doing (either knowingly or unknowingly)
2. Was murdered and it was made to look like a suicide, a la Vincent Foster, before he could be subpoenaed to testify under oath to any future investigation (not that there will be any, as long as the dems control congress).
Either way, I am sorry for his family's loss. Tragedy is tragedy, whether it is self inflicted or meted out by others.
