Acting Freddie Mac CFO Commits Suicide

Of course his suicide could have been a result of something totally unrelated to his job at Freddie Mac like family issues. Perhaps he has had a history of depression. Considering what Freddie Mac (and Fannie Mae) has put this country through financially, however, it’s not unreasonable to wonder if it was related to his job:

David Kellermann, acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, committed suicide in his Hunter Mill Estates home Wednesday morning.

Fairfax County Police spokeswoman Mary Anne Jennings tells WTOP police responded to the Kellermann home after family members called police around 5 a.m.

“We were called from inside the house to come investigate an apparent suicide,” Jennings says.

“We’re not going to give you details of the condition of the body, except to say it was an apparent suicide.”

More from Fox News:

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.

According to his bio, 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 congressional legislation known as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. That law was a response to financial scandals like Enron and was intended to make corporate boards more accountable.

A person must feel his life is totally devoid of any hope to take his own life like this. How very sad.
