Now the police have changed their story, Freddie Mac CFO shot himself in the head. Was this before the hanging?
Autopsy results for David Kellermann, the acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, may be released as early as Thursday, police say.
Police say Kellermann's death was an apparent suicide. Sources tell WTOP he hanged himself in the basement of his upscale home. The Washington Post reports Kellermann hanged himself on a piece of exercise equipment.
The medical examiner's autopsy will determine the cause of death.
"We were called from inside the house to come investigate an apparent suicide," said Fairfax County Police spokeswoman Mary Anne Jennings Wednesday. Kellermann's wife, Donna, made the 911 call at 4:48 a.m. Wednesday.
"We're not going to give you details of the condition of the body, except to say it was an apparent suicide."
Authorities have not commented on whether Kellermann left a suicide note.
"We will not confirm, as is the policy of our department, if there even is the existence of any note," Fairfax County Police Officer Eddy Azcarate says.
