Police believe Anthony Taglianetti of Virginia is responsible for the Clymer, New York man's death.
In a news conference this afternoon, officials said they believe this was not a random act, but the result of a personal issue between Taglianetti and Reed. Police say the two men knew each other on a personal level, and they have evidence that puts Taglianetti in Clymer on Friday when authorities believe Reed was shot to death.
Police believe Taglianetti has fled the state and they are searching for him, but he is considered to be armed and dangerous. Sheriff Gerace believes that Taglianetti's only reason for being in Clymer was to murder Reed.
Reed, the former Clymer Schools Superintendent, was found shot to death outside his home on Monday.
