VIENNA, Va. -(WTOP)- David Kellermann, acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, committed suicide in his Hunter Mill Estates home Wednesday morning. He hanged himself.

Fairfax County Police spokeswoman Mary Anne Jennings tells WTOP police responded to the Kellermann home after family members called police at 4:48 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.”

OK, perhaps a bit early to speculate, here. It may well have been something totally unrelated to his job. And I may well be winning the lottery, or struck by lightning. I place the chances of these at about par with each other.

So, we’ll just sit back and wait for the other shoe to drop, since it clearly will, and soon.

 Update:(Bit) About 30 seconds after I snarked on Twitter: “Ron Brown, call your office” I noticed a McPhillips post from the other day:

On the theory that this crew will not finish the year without surpassing the Clintons in all the big first year categories.

My instincts tell me that he’s just too mean and suspicious to let anyone get behind him, but I’m going to pick Rahm Emanuel anyway.

It’s going to swing this way: Rod Blagojevich has to come up with a name and Emanuel is it, despite what we’ve already heard to the contrary.

Emanuel, meanwhile, holds his own bucket of dirt and tries to use it to acquire a get-out-of-jail-free card for himself. Alas, he asks for too much behind a too easily deciphered threat and gets sent directly to Ft. Marcy Park.* He does not pass Go.

Well, clearly, that part he messed up, but the basis of the thing seems sound; There’s enough history here to make one wonder about what we’re seeing today.

I wonder if anyone picked Kellerman in the pool, then.
