Freddie Mac CFO Kellermann Took Stress Leave Before Death
Kellermann had delegated his duties to coworkers before he left the office for the final time. Medical examiners have performed an autopsy, but the results are not yet available.
Kellermann, 41, had played a major role in helping Freddie Mac to navigate past accounting scandals and answer questions from regulators and investors who put the company under intense scrutiny as a five-year U.S. housing boom ended in 2006.
Kellermann signed paperwork delegating his responsibilities to subordinates but remained at work on Tuesday, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
