Suspect identified in slaying of former Sherburne-Earlville principal

Police say a nationwide search has begun for a Virginia man believed to have driven to upstate New York last week to kill a school superintendent.

Police believe 42-year-old Anthony Taglianetti II of Woodbridge, Virginia, went to Clymer last Friday night to shoot 51-year-old Keith Reed Jr.

Officials say the slaying was unconnected to Reed's job as school superintendent. They believe they know the motive, but they would not divulge it. An official says police have ruled out murder for hire or a drug-related killing.

Reed was a former high school principal in the Sherburne-Earlville Central School District in Chenango County. According to the Utica Observer-Dispatch, Reed left the district just last year.

County prosecutor David Foley says that the two men were "not unfamiliar with one another" and that it was a "personal issue."
