My guess is he knew wayyy too much, and the call came out to have him exterminated...
Can you give some more information on this guy testifying about the passports? What was compromised? Where was this reported?
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.
City police said they do not know whether his death was a direct result of his cooperation with federal investigators.
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.

Hung himself just like the dc madam did. Only on the first floor and not the tool shed.
How about that?

I remain skeptical.
If you are the CFO of a corporation, you can get out of the country. You don't commit suicide if trouble looms, you get out of dodge. Why didn't he get on a private charter flight and live out the remainder of his life in riches and luxury somewhere in Europe?
Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley suggested on Monday that AIG executives should take a Japanese approach toward accepting responsibility for the collapse of the insurance giant by resigning or killing themselves.
The Republican lawmaker’s harsh comments came during an interview with Cedar Rapids, Iowa, radio station WMT. They echo remarks he has made in the past about corporate executives and public apologies, but went further in suggesting suicide.
“I suggest, you know, obviously, maybe they ought to be removed,” Grassley said. “But I would suggest the first thing that would make me feel a little bit better toward them if they’d follow the Japanese example and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say, I’m sorry, and then either do one of two things: resign or go commit suicide.
“And in the case of the Japanese, they usually commit suicide before they make any apology.”

I think the guy learned about all the Freddie kickbacks to government officials.
It happens with the VA and FHA. I have first hand Knowledge. I hope they dont come after me and fake a suicide.
If you dont hear from me again I guess you'll know.
Life intervened and the sad death of a senior officer at Freddie led to the postponement. Apparently, the dealers who are marketing the bonds wanted some representation from Freddie that the death of the acting CFO was not connected somehow to fraud or cooked books.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage delinquencies among the most creditworthy homeowners rose 50 percent in a month as borrowers said drops in income or too much debt caused them to fall behind, according to data from federal regulators.
