Freddie Mac CFO Dead in Apparent Suicide

by Mark Wellborn

We woke up this morning to some very sad news. Local news stations are reporting that David Kellermann, Acting Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Freddie Mac, was found dead this morning at his Vienna home of an apparent suicide. He was 41 years old.

Kellerman’s wife called Fairfax County police at approximately 5am after she alerted them to his suicide. He had been with Freddie Mac for 16 years.

We will update you on this devastating situation as we receive more information.

Update: Here is the Associated Press report.

    I seriously doubt this was a suicide.

    The intergration of the Clinton administration into Obozzo’s is complete now that we see the bodies starting to fall.

    Obummer and Dodd took the 2 highest amounts of “campaign contributions” in history from Freddie and Fannie at the very same time they were voting AGAINST S190, a bill that would have brought over-sight to both organizations as it pertained to secondary sub prime lending - the EXACT reason we are in the mess we are in today.  Hmmmmmmmmm?

    For goodness sake, show some respect. This post has nothing to do with policy.

    If his suicide had anything to do with his situation at work, a good lesson to learn here is to work to enjoy your life. Leave the crap at work and come home and leave that part separate. You can’t take your job to seriously, its ONLY a means to and end.

    how sad.  Another victim of this horrible economy.  I’m with Rich- it’s just money!  Some of the happiest people I’ve ever met have been the poorest.

    Sad,,,this guy is the same age as me…..although this smacks of the Clinton-esque “accidental gunshot wound to the back of the head” sort of thing.”

    I wonder how many other “suicides” will start taking place now that it is clear now that Obama’s real agenda is slowly being revealed?

    it would have been a good idea to have 24-7 security surveillance on this guy and any other CEO of the bailed-out companies just in case anyone tried to take out their frustrations on one of them
