Police say he was shot multiple times and left in the front yard of his Clymer home. No one had seen or heard from Reed since Friday, but after authorities found him on Monday, they spent the whole day at his home collecting evidence.
Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace said, "This is a very tough time for everybody in the community. This kind of thing doesn't usually happen in Chautauqua County very much."
Many neighbors are questioning why would someone do this. Especially to a man so loved by the community. Last November, Reed became the Superintendent of the Clymer School District.
Neighbor Joni Yotpolis said, "He just couldn't get over the excitement over how wonderful the community was to him. So it broke my heart because this was just two weeks ago."
On Facebook people have posted numerous comments. Brandie says, "Keith Reed will NEVER be forgotten. He didn't automatically judge people. He listened and did everything he could to help others. Mr. Reed was a great man."
Rosina writes, "He wasn't just a ‘figure' in our school, but a great person who would do anything to be involved with the kids and the parents."
