Police Found Freddie Mac CFO Dead by Hanging
Law enforcement sources said David Kellermann, acting chief financial officer of mortgage company Freddie Mac, was found hanging in the basement of his Vienna, Va., home, dead from an apparent suicide early this morning.

The death was "an active investigation" and there were "no signs of foul play," Fairfax County police officer Sabrina Ruck said.

Local police said they were called to Kellermann's home at 4:48 a.m., but would not say who'd placed the call to 911.

Kellermann, 41, and a 16-year veteran of Freddie Mac, had been the company's CFO since September, after a government takeover of the company following the housing crisis.

Quote:The death was "an active investigation" and there were "no signs of foul play," Fairfax County police officer Sabrina Ruck said.

That officer Sabrina Ruck is a busy bee. Five days ago there was another case that made headlines, her name came up.

I'm not saying this means anything, but this is a conspiracy board, right? So let's just keep her name in mind (or on a Google Alert)... and see if something comes up.

Edit: maybe the two cases were connected, and the deceased had something to do with it? Naah

...and now the "accidents" start happening in the aftermath of the bailouts. My suspicions would be that those who suffer these accidents might have had attacks of conscience or hinted at letting some info out recently.:suspicious:

Update: now there's a gunshot wound.

Quote:Updated: Fairfax County Police Say Medical Examiner Will Determine Exact Cause Of Kellerman's Death

April 22, 2009 8:37 a.m. EST

Linda Young - AHN Editor

Reston, VA (AHN) - Police are not speculating on the cause of death of Freddie Mac's acting head, David Kellermann, at this point and will leave it up to the medical examiner, Fairfax County Police Public Information Officer Lucy Caldwell told AHN Media.

Kellermann, 41, was found by Fairfax County Police after being called to his home in Hunter Mill estates in the Reston, VA area Wednesday morning.

However, there were "no signs of foul play. It's under investigation. Police were called at 4:49 a.m.," Fairfax County Police Public Information Officer Lucy Caldwell told AHN Media in a telephone interview.

Asked if the death was a suicide, Caldwell said they were leaving that determination up to the county medical examiner. She wasn't sure if the body had been removed yet or not when AHN spoke to her at 8:30 a.m.

"We were just called to respond to an unattended death and it's under investigation," Caldwell said.

Although Caldwell told AHN that police have not yet released the identity of the person who called them, she did confirm to AHN that there were other people present in the house at the time of the death and that there was a gun and a gunshot wound.

I got more. Freddie Mac has "removed" Kellermann's biography from its site, but if you hit the stop button quick enough you can still access it (or via google cache). Just thought I'd archive it here in case we need it later.

Quote:DAVID KELLERMANN
Acting Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President

David Kellermann was named acting chief financial officer in September 2008. Kellermann is a member of the company's leadership team and reports directly to CEO David M. Moffett.

As acting chief financial officer, Kellermann is responsible for the company's financial controls, financial reporting, tax, capital oversight, and compliance with the requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley. He also oversees the company's annual budgeting and financial planning processes.

Prior to this role, he served as senior vice president, corporate controller and principal accounting officer. In this position, his primary responsibility was to support the business with the production of timely, accurate, and well-controlled GAAP, fair value and segment earnings financial statements and external disclosures.

Before that, Kellermann served as the senior vice president and business area controller. As business area controller, he led the organization responsible for all accounting and finance for Freddie Mac’s lines of business.

Kellermann has been with Freddie Mac for more than 16 years. He began as a financial analyst/auditor in 1992, worked for several years in the company's securities sales and trading unit, and has served in a variety of positions in the company's capital markets division, most recently serving as vice president strategy execution and integration and the Investments and Capital Markets division controller.

He holds a M.S. in Finance from George Washington University and a B.S. in Political Science and Accounting from the University of Michigan. Kellermann is a volunteer board member of the D.C. Coalition for the Homeless.

Freddie Mac was established by Congress in 1970 to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the nation's residential mortgage markets. Freddie Mac supports communities across the nation by providing mortgage capital to lenders. Over the years, Freddie Mac has made home possible for one in six homebuyers and more than five million renters.

Edit: something else came up:

Quote:A neighbor tells WTOP a security guard was posted - apparently as a precaution - outside the Kellermann home for "a few days" earlier this month, after Fannie Mae disclosed the names of executives in line for bonuses. Freddie Mac has not disclosed which executives would get bonuses.
...
Fox News is reporting that a suicide note may have been found, but details are limited.
http://www.wtop.com/?nid=600&sid=1657033
It's hearsay, but not far fetched. If that's true, then you may ask yourself, would you hire a security guard to protect yourself if you're planning on killing yourself anyway?

most likely he had information and wanted to come out and tell the truth and they whacked before spilling the beans...

It could also be a ploy to gain another benefit for them, gun control measures that are going on the floor. Let's see, that is 1 today and wasn't it just last week or so that a CTer was suppose to have killed someone?

This is a messy way of whacking someone who probably flies in private planes and other means of travel the Illuminati love using to rationalize away mysterious accidental death.

The fact he was directly assassinated means they were probably monitering his electronic communication and learned he was about to spill some information very, very soon. I think he made mention to the wrong thing over e-mail or phone and minutes later he was dead from a hanging/shooting himself... interesting and elaborate suicide for such a young, family man with a 5 y.o. daughter and millions of dollars.

Quote:Kellerman: the Scapegoat of a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy?
By HousingWire staff
April 23, 2009 11:26 AM CST

Editor's note: HousingWire is receiving numerous responses to the tragic passing of David Kellerman, acting CFO of Freddie Mac. Many sound a similar chord to the perceived uneven treatment of his death in the mainstream media. One such opinion is published here, written by an industry veteran who wishes to remain anonymous. It is not reflective of the opinions or objectives of the HousingWire editorial staff, and represents a third party submission.

How did you feel when you heard that David Kellerman, acting CFO of Freddie Mac, allegedly committed suicide yesterday morning? I wondered what could possibly make a successful family man resort to taking his life.

In following coverage of this event, I viewed some reader comments on [a national news network] about the story. Theories of political intrigue, plots and payback abound. According to many of these comments, every single thing that happens to us is because of outside forces; everything we do has some ulterior motive.

Sometimes not everything is about politics.

Sometimes its about right and wrong.

When something like this happens, human nature dictates that we think the victim (yes, he is a victim) was guilty of something; that he took the ultimate way out to keep from getting caught.

We read that Mr. Kellerman recently received an $800,000 bonus, and that he had hired a security company to guard his house. We learn that reporters had been dogging him for comments about whether he deserved the bonus in view of Freddie Mac's recent poor performance.

But buried in all the hype, after I managed to extricate myself from those disturbing comments about conspiracies and punishment, I found a Washington Post article that reported:

"Kellermann has figured in several recent controversies at Freddie Mac. He and a group of company lawyers tussled with the company's regulator in early March as the firm prepared to file its quarterly disclosure. The group insisted that Freddie Mac disclose the $30 billion cost to the company of carrying out the Obama administration's housing recovery plan, but the regulator urged the company not to do so.

Freddie Mac employees argued they had a legal obligation to disclose the information and would have to get the Securities and Exchange Commission, which oversees such disclosures, to sign off if they didn't. The regulator backed down."


Did you read this carefully? Do you get it? This isn't the story of a guy who was trying to cover something up. It's the story of a guy who was trying to do the right thing.

If the information is correct, Kellerman and his cohorts insisted on reporting Freddie Mac's financial status as they believed it should be represented, disclosing all of its obligations. It sounds like they were able to get the regulators to agree, but at what price? Who knows what machinations took place during those struggles, and who knows what the aftermath was/will be like, for Freddie Mac and for Mr. Kellerman personally?

Could it be that this guy, David Kellerman, was just trying to do his job to the best of his abilities, embracing the ethics and spirit of financial accounting as well as the technical requirements? Could it be that, rather than having something to hide, rather than feeling guilty about his bonus, he simply could no longer tolerate the grinding of the giant gears that continually attempt to convince the public, us taxpayers, that everything will be all right and that our government has everything under control?

Not everything has political undercurrents. Sometimes it's just about right and wrong and trying to do your job. I don't know what Mr. Kellerman's feelings were at the time he allegedly took his life. I have no inside (or other) information about his job performance, or about his history with Freddie Mac. I do know that if he had worked there since 1992 - he was 25 when he started - he saw massive changes come to what was probably the only company he ever worked for. It's possible that, in the end, he just couldn't stand to see the company he loved be eviscerated.
