Freddie Mac CFO Found Dead; Wife Says Suicide
Trilateral Commission Alert! David Kellermann, Acting Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of the troubled mortgage lender Freddie Mac, has been found dead in his home. His wife is said to have reported him a suicide. Previously the company's Principal Accounting Officer, the 41-year-old George Washington University alumnus was boosted to CFO last September. He recently received an $850,000 bonus for his stewardship of the lender's finances. Along with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac is facilitating a large part of Obama's housing reform plan. There is currently a bill in Congressional committee to investigate both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. No foul play is suspected in Kellerman's death, and no note revealed.
