CFO of Freddie Mac commits suicide

The unexpected toll of the financial meltdown continues. 

From the Washington Post: “There was no immediate information about whether Kellermann left a suicide note, or what may have prompted him to take his own life. Kellermann was named acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac last September, when the federal government seized Freddie Mac and ousted its top executives.”

David Kellerman had been with the company for 16 years.  He was 41.   We’re so quick to vilify the entire industry, that it’s easy to overlook the devastating effects this has had on the people who weren’t responsible.
