Freddie Mac Acting CFO Found Dead In Vienna | WUSA9.com | Washington, DC |.

WASHINGTON (AP) — David Kellermann, the acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, was found dead at his home Wednesday morning in what broadcast reports said was an apparent suicide.

WUSA-TV and WTOP Radio reported that David Kellermann was found dead in his Northern Virginia home. The 41-year-old Kellermann has been Freddie Mac’s chief financial officer since September.

Sabrina Ruck, a Fairfax County police spokesman, confirmed to The Associated Press that Kellermann was dead, but she could not confirm that he committed suicide.

Kellermann’s death is the latest blow to Freddie Mac, a government controlled company that owns or guarantees about 13 million home loans. CEO David Moffett resigned last month.

McLean, Va.-based Freddie Mac and sibling company Fannie Mae, which together own or back more than half of the home mortgages in the country, have been hobbled by skyrocketing loan defaults and have received about $60 billion in combined federal aid.

Kellermann was named acting chief financial officer in September 2008, after the resignation of Anthony “Buddy” Piszel, who stepped down after the September 2008 government takeover. The chief financial officer is responsible for the company’s financial controls, financial reporting and oversight of the company’s budget and financial planning.

Before taking that job, Kellerman served as senior vice president, corporate controller and principal accounting officer. He was with Freddie Mac for more than 16 years.

Think he knew something the rest of us did not?

Update:

Per ABC, ol’ boy hung himself.

  1. As I commented on my entry for this, there are some elements of basic journalism that are glaringly absent:
    -Who discovered the Kellerman’s body?
    -What time? Where in the house?
    -How did he “apparently” commit suicide?
    -Was there an apparent motive or not?
    -Did his office have any comments?
    -Was his family notified? What did they say?

    I smell a rat.

    I would hazard the guess it was based on a tip, and the reporter was fleshing out the story, without making up details that could get him/her in trouble. Most of it sounds like “vanilla” info.

    Easy way out not to be convicted of mishandling goverment money or easy out for the goverment to keep someone from talking about their mishandling of the citizens money.

    Either way there is a child left without a father to raise them and a wife that is about to be the swarmed from the frenzy feeding blood sucking media sharks.
