Convenient Deaths

This is going to seem cold, and my thoughts do go out to the Kellerman family, but after Donald Young, Lt. Quarles Harris, and Bill Gwatney, how many of you would like to join me in calling B*llshit on this being a suicide?  David Kellerman was the CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER and his peer, CEO David Moffit just RESIGNED.  I know, I know…have to be able to prove it in a court of law….just sayin’, but in the words of Kathy Markulis, “How stupid does he think we are?” (See update at bottom of post.)

Acting Freddie Mac CFO found dead

VIENNA, Va. — David Kellermann, acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, was found dead in his Hunter Mill Estates home Wednesday morning in what police say was an apparent suicide.Fairfax County Police spokeswoman Mary Anne Jennings tells WTOP police responded to the Kellermann home after family members dialed 911 at 4:48 a.m.

Sources tell WTOP Kellermann hanged himself.

I am guessing that Kellermann did not own a gun.

“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.”

A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

Police on the scene tell WTOP Kellermann’s body was found on the home’s lower level.

and this:

Police investigating death of Freddie Mac official

Kellermann, a University of Michigan graduate who went to business school at George Washington University, worked for Freddie Mac for the past 16 years and was named acting chief financial officer last September when the government seized control of the company and ousted top executives. Freddie Mac lost more than $50 billion last year, and the government has pumped in $45 billion to keep the company afloat.

Kellermann’s death is the latest in a string of blows to Freddie Mac, which owns or guarantees about 13 million mortgages and us the No. 2 mortgage finance company after sibling Fannie Mae. The company has been criticized for financing risky mortgage loans that fueled the real estate bubble, and its first government appointed CEO, David Moffett, resigned last month after six months on the job.

Federal prosecutors in Virginia have been investigating Freddie Mac’s business practices. But two U.S. law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the Freddie Mac investigation, said Kellermann was neither a target nor a subject of the investigation and had not been under law enforcement scrutiny.(emphasis mine)

Donald Young:

Choir conductor found murdered

A man who worked as a choir conductor and school teacher was found Sunday shot to death. The victim is 47-year-old Donald Young.

Young’s death has been ruled a homicide. His body was discovered Sunday morning inside his South Side home at 2320 E. 69th St.

Donald Young was the fourth of eight siblings. He was, according to those who loved him, the type of person who didn’t take life for granted. He lived every day to the fullest. So whether it was in the South Side classroom where he taught, or at church conducting the choir every Sunday, Young made an impression on those who met him.

“He was one of those success stories, the average person would look at and say he doesn’t have a chance,” said Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Trinity United Church of Christ.

And yet, before his death , Donald Young succeeded mightily. He was a choir conductor at Trinity United Church of Christ for many years. Amateur video shot just last week shows him doing what for him wasn’t a profession but a calling.

Lt. Quarles Harris:
Key Witness In Passport Fraud Case Fatally Shot

A key witness in a federal probe into passport information stolen from the State Department was fatally shot in front of a District church, the Metropolitan Police Department said yesterday.

Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with a federal investigators, was found late Thursday night slumped dead inside a car, in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in Northeast, said Cmdr. Michael Anzallo, head of the department’s Criminal Investigations Division.

Cmdr. Anzallo said a police officer was patrolling the neighborhood when gunshots were heard, then Lt. Harris was found dead inside the vehicle, which investigators would describe only as a blue car.

Emergency medics pronounced him dead at the scene.

City police said they do not know whether his death was a direct result of his cooperation with federal investigators.

“We don’t have any information right now that connects his murder to that case,” Cmdr. Anzallo said.

Police say a “shot spotter” device helped an officer locate Lt. Harris.

A State Department spokeswoman yesterday declined to comment, saying the investigation into the passport fraud is ongoing.

The Washington Times reported April 5 that contractors for the State Department had improperly accessed passport information for presidential candidates Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain, which resulted in a series of firings that reached into the agency’s top ranks.

One agency employee, who was not identified in documents filed in U.S. District Court, was implicated in a credit-card fraud scheme after Lt. Harris told federal authorities he obtained “passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S. Department of State.”

Bill Gwatney:

Intruder kills Democratic superdelegate in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A man barged into the Arkansas Democratic headquarters yesterday and fatally shot the state party chairman before speeding off in his pickup. Police shot and killed the suspect after a 30-mile chase.

He was identified as Timothy Dale Johnson, 50, of Searcy, about 50 miles northeast of Little Rock.

Moments after the shooting, John- son pointed a handgun at a worker at the nearby Arkansas Baptist headquarters. An official there said he told the worker, “I lost my job.”

Party chairman Bill Gwatney, 48, died four hours after the shooting. The former state senator had been planning to attend the Democratic National Convention as a superdelegate. He had backed Hillary Rodham Clinton but endorsed Barack Obama after she dropped out of the race.

One more interesting thought; can anybody remember whole families being killed during the recessions of the recent past due to economic hard times?

UPDATE:

Updated: Fairfax County Police Say Medical Examiner Will Determine Exact Cause of Kellerman’s Death

Although Caldwell told AHN that police have not yet released the identity of the person who called them, she did confirm to AHN that there were other people present in the house at the time of the death and that there was a gun and a gunshot wound.

So which was it; hanging, or shooting himself 7 times in the heart while his hands were tied behind his back?

    Diamond, the first thing I thought upon hearing this news on tv was, here we go again. It’s becoming very scary out there.

    The murder of Lt. Quarles Harris, Jr., eliminating a witness in the Passport Case, was one of the clumsiest pieces of cover-up I’ve ever seen. Nobody was fooled by this, but it apparently worked.

    Now with Kellerman, there is a witness who says there was a gunshot and a gumshot wound? This witness had better have ten copies of a statement made and distributed to trusted friends or family members to insure his/her own suicide isn’t reported before long.

    With so much money involved and so much power at stake don’t be surprised at anything.

  2. lee M. says:

    Sorry, I meant gunshot wound, not gumshot. I think this has shaken me more than I realized. And I join with you, Diamond in believing that this is no more suicide than it is a tap dance.

    I feel for the Kellerman family at this time of their loss.

    To cover Obama’s lies, many more will have to die. Our country is going to become a third world hell hole with Comrade Obama at the helm. We probably haven’t seen anything yet. Israel’s top expert on terrorism is predicting imminent attacks on America and said they will be extremely violent and the loss of life will be horrific. Obama will probably surrender to the Nation of Islam to prevent further bloodshed, as long as he is left as dictator in thief.

  4. Sparky – not going to happen. You gotta have a bit more faith man – in US – We The People. There are 57% that still believe in capitalism and the Constitution. Better pull yourself up by your bootstraps man!

  5. When I woke up to the news, my mind immediately went “there” – my second thought was – well, we should out-law ropes, then.

    Are you aware how many people have died from being hanged?

  6. bluesky says:

    I have never got over Bill Gwatney’s murder. He did not move his support to Obama after the Primary. We had talked to him days before he was murdered, and just a few weeks before the convention, and he was still fully supporting Hillary and intended to at the convention. Gwatney was a threat to Obama period, and now that we know the Banksters were behind Obama and needed to guarantee his win so he could do their bidding, it does not seem far fetched at all that Obama’s people murdered Gwatney. After he was murdered, Obama replaced the State Party Chair position with an Obama supporter, and then Arkansas is declared unanimous for Obama at the convention. Bullshit! Eight of Hillary’s delegates voted for Hillary, and the others were completely threatened to switch their votes to Obama or the State would not get any money from the DNC for their down ticket dem races. How the Democratic Party Leadership can look themselves in the mirror is beyond me. They backed a criminal and a cabal as their nominee, and if there was any justice in America they would all be in jail.

  7. Leaping Spark says:

    DT, I hope 57% of America still believes in the Constitution, but I doubt that they have the guts to stand up for their beliefs. Having read several books written about Obama I don’t find it surprising that people are dying, his eyes are cold and evil and he can barely hide his contempt for anyone that dares question his policies or plans for America. I think Obama found the tea Parties interesting, but not the least bit disconcerting as he continues to ram his socialist policies down our throats. I feel sorry for the families who have lost loved ones, but all who stand in defiance of the new Messiah of Islam will be crushed
    politically or through legitimate violence. The Quran says by the word or by the sword. It makes no differnce to Obama. We are not dealing with just a corrupt politician, Obama is a disciple of a cruel and barbaric religion, a religion that believes that the Nation of Islam should rule the world. Obama is the perfect storm for the people who hate America, He is a Muslim, married to a black liberationist, and he embraces the radical left and Communism.

    However the outcome I will stand with the Patriots of America.

  8. LibberTea says:

    My condolences to the Kellermann family. I do wonder if Mr. Kellermann hung himself with rope from the same spool that the DC Madam (Tarpon Springs) and her aide (New York) were suicided with?

  9. REScotish says:

    ..Bad Karma coming home to roost??….

  10. I for one am willing to allow for the (slim) possibility of suicide. It’s entirely feasible to me that once Kellerman got a good look at Freddie Mac’s books he realized what he had stumbled into and went home and blew his brains out. But I do have to admit it’s hard to believe that after 16 years there he didn’t know what they were in to before he accepted the CFO post.

    My heartfelt condolences to the Kellerman family. I am quite sure that (murder or suicide) they did not know what their patriarch was getting into.

  11. Reminds me of the demise of David Kelley in the U.K. remember??

  12. navyvet48 says:

    My heart goes out to the Kellerman Family of course
    but — what was in those books… I suspect that Freddie Mac has cooked some of the books…and the part that was cooked benefits Obozo…It does amaze me at times how more people die around Obozo than any other president!

  13. Let’s not forget Stephanie Tubbs Jones, who was a friend and supporter of Hillary:

  14. restore_the_constitution says:

    “was found late Thursday night slumped dead inside a car, in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in Northeast”

    Yeah just like Stephanie Tubbs Jones was found slumped over the driver’s wheel of her car and they called it a stroke…Bull. I do not believe this man killed himself. The way the pundits all keep using the phrase “apparent suicide” gets to me. What’s so apparent about it? No. This was a murder to shut them up the same as the other murders were to shut the victims up.

  15. restore_the_constitution says:

    Yes Stephanie. She didn’t die from a stroke. We are not stupid and can see all the murders from stroke, hanging, and execution style are murders to shut people up. Even Tim Russert died suddenly from a supposed stroke but the squatter in chief had a vandetta for him because he made him look like a fool at one of the debates against Hillary.

  16. Kathy says:

    Tim Russert was the only one on MSNBC that seemed to be fair. I wondered about his death at the time, if he had lived would there had been more about Obama’s past.

    Did his sudden death have anything to do with the media not pursing the truth about the NBC issue? Was his death the reason MSNBC started to fall all over Obama, more than the other media? Was his death a warning to others.

    At first I thought it was far fetched thinking on my part, but I believe there is much more to Tim Russert’s death than has been reported.

  17. I too have wondered about Tim Russert’s death; he didn’t shy away from the truth.

  18. lee M. says:

    Kathy, Tim Russert wasn’t very fair to Hillary Clinton at one of the debates. He gleefully tried to make her look bad. But I have to agree with those who say he would have held Obama’s feet to the fire, but not to be fair, but to enhance his standing at NBC.

    I did not like Tim Russert. He made it so obvious that while pinning someone to the wall, he enjoyed it a little too much to be considered impartial. I think his death was very suspicious and NBC’s immediate embrace of anything and everything Obama also suspect.

    Too many deaths, too convenient. It’s like a Shakespeare drama brought to life.

  19. 1sgboom says:

    And the “Moron-in-charge” wonders why we are clinging to our guns and bibles!

    “THE MAN THAT BEATS HIS GUN INTO A PLOW BECOMES A SLAVE.”

  20. PaulW says:

    she did confirm to AHN that there were other people present in the house at the time of the death and that there was a gun and a gunshot wound.

    Wait, there was a GUNSHOT WOUND *AND* a HANGING?!?! Unless the gunshot wound was a pinkie toe getting it, how the BLEEP could a shooting victim still be able to go through the hassle and work of setting up a noose and hang himself???

  21. Robert says:

    Suffice it to say that I have never been a fan of coincidence. Especially when there seems to be a string of related “unrelated” events. Our present state of affairs is a bit unsettling.

  22. Ah…another “Vince Foster” moment. That’s what I thought the minute I heard the news.
    And now we have no-balls-barry’s little “I’m going to start the political payback because george soros won’t stop screaming at me on my wittle bwackberry [barney frank-speak]and I am such a nimrod I don’t know how to turn it off”
    This man must be stopped.

  23. SiliconDoc says:

    The Lt. was murdered, obviously – the police are even scared to talk about it – he had the truth about Obama’s birthplace the clues needed to unlock the puzzle – those no doubt are already passed along – the media covered it up by quickly claiming afterwards that Hillary and McCains records were also “snooped” as they put it – but they were stolen, and it appears modified – an ops program gone bad – so a sacrifice had to be made. The place this guy worked for – his connection got the $,$$$,$$$,$$$ contract for beefing up the security…
    He proved a hole was there – so congress passes the money… the backup was all info as a threat if funding didn’t come. Tampering may have been the deal to change what was there to make it kosher and protect the One- for now.
    The Chicago O combine – they’ve been working on a lot of people during the campiagn : ” Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-Ohio) died Wednesday at the age of 58, becoming the seventh member of the House to die in office since January 20 ”
    Seven House members croak in office in 7 months. lol
    I’m sure they have a formula/polling to make sure they don’t off too many too quickly and remove all doubt from the public eyes – that psychology polling can be generated nowadays just using an internet search engine algorythym targeted and based upon prior occurences for the pattern detection.

  25. IQ says:

    people die all the time, its natural, so what are you all worried about? Oh the fact that they all had a beef with the government, and may have had incriminating evidence against Obama and the deaths were mysterious without suspects being arrested and charged? Dont worry, thats perfectly normal and if you do happen to die, you are biodegradable,and perfectly environmentally safe. see nothing to worry about.
