(Newser) – Acting Freddie Mac CFO David Kellerman was found dead this morning in what appears to have been a suicide, the Washington Post reports. Kellerman, 41, joined Freddie Mac as an analyst in 1992. He was promoted to CFO when the government took over Freddie last fall, but the company, which hemorrhaged billions as the mortgage market collapsed, has been publicly searching for a permanent replacement.
