Vigil planned for slain former principal at Sherburne-Earlville

By Associated Press

CLYMER, N.Y. (AP) - A vigil will be held for the small-town school superintendent who was found shot to death outside his western New York home.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office says its investigators continue to look for clues in the fatal shooting of 51-year-old Keith Reed Jr., the superintendent in Clymer, on the Pennsylvania border in New York's southwest corner. Reed had previously been the High School Principal at Sherburne-Earlville Central School.

Authorities say Reed suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Police found his body Monday about 150 feet from his home in the rural town. Officials say the slaying doesn't appear to have been a random act.

Reed had been Clymer's superintendent since November. He had previously worked as an administrator at schools in the Elmira area and in Chenango and Steuben counties.

A vigil for Reed is being held Wednesday evening at the United Methodist Church in Clymer.
