Freddie Mac: Apparent Suicide? I Think Not
Apparent suicide -- my ass.
Freddie Mac was going down long before this guy agreed to act as its Chief Financial Officer. Forty-one year olds don't kill themselves unless either their personal lives are falling apart or they're about to be indicted for a major felony that would land them in prison for a very long time.
This guy agreed to become acting CFO less than a year ago -- long after it became apparent that something terribly wrong was going on at Freddie Mac. If Kellerman was in on the whole scam, he wouldn't have assumed responsibility for it just as everyone else was bailing out.
Moreover, this guy had been with the company since he was no more than 25 years old - sounds like dedication to me.
More likely, six months into uncovering exactly what the f*ck happened over the last five to ten years at Freddie Mac, this guy began discovering precisely who was behind this fiasco and how they did it. So, they offed him.
David Kellermann, the acting chief financial officer of mortgage giant Freddie Mac, was found dead at his home Wednesday morning in what police said was an apparent suicide.People must demand a thorough and independent investigation of this guys death. Otherwise, his murder - along with the rape of this nation -- will continue to go unopposed and unpunished.
Kellermann was found dead in his Reston, Va., home. The 41-year-old Kellermann has been Freddie Mac's chief financial officer since September.
Jennings said that a crime scene crew and homicide detectives were investigating the death, but that there didn't appear to be any sign of foul play.
McLean-based Freddie Mac has been criticized heavily for reckless business practices that some argue contributed to the housing and financial crisis. Freddic Mac is a government-controlled company that owns or guarantees about 13 million home loans. CEO David Moffett resigned last month.

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.

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.
