"Someone Was Always Angry At Him"

Mr. Kellermann, 41, began working non-stop, sometimes returning home only to change clothes, colleagues say. He was losing weight and telling friends that it seemed impossible to appease everyone — regulators, lawmakers, investors and other executives — with competing demands. Someone was always angry at him, he told one friend. And no matter how many hours everyone worked, it seemed like the economy and homeowners were still slipping further into the abyss.

Then earlier this month, Mr. Kellermann and other executives at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae became the focus of intense scrutiny when lawmakers learned they would receive bonuses totaling $210 million. Mr. Kellermann was set to receive $850,000 over 16 months. Reporters and camera crews showed up at his home in an affluent Washington suburb. Fearing that someone might attack his house, his wife or their 5-year-old daughter, he asked the company to provide a security detail.


FYI, hanging is the easiest sucide to stage. Actually, rather hard to do by yourself.

Now what if, just supposing, wondering, you know....

CFO David Kellermann Had It Coming?

After all, Fannie Mae was big fan of H-1Bs and India, Inc:

Bangalore/Chennai: Regulatory intervention in US financial institutions such as American International Group (AIG), Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to avert insolvency, is unlikely to alter the outsourcing landscape for Indian vendors.

Despite being controlled by the US Government, these entities may continue to take independent outsourcing decisions looking for technology solutions to cut costs.

Maybe Kellermann was behind all those decisions to give Freddie Mac work to India, Inc. ?
And did Kellermann hire a guy like this H-1B?
According to Nye, the FBI traced the malicious script to Makwana through Fannie Mae network logs, and by comparing the contents of a directory that Makwana created the day he was terminated with the naming scheme of temporary files on his laptop, which he turned in later that day.

An Indian national, Makwana was released on $100,000 bond. He also surrendered his passport and was barred from using computers or the Internet except for use in any job he holds as well as to communicate with his family in India.


And the rest of you CIOs/CTOs/CEOs in bed with India, Inc. will need better security than Kellermann had.
