CLYMER - Keith Reed Jr., Clymer Central School superintendent, has been found dead on his property outside his home.

According to Joe Gerace, Chautauqua County Sheriff, Reed was reported missing Sunday night by colleagues and friends. Deputies went to Reed's home Sunday night, Sept. 23, but were unable to find Reed. Early Monday morning, Sheriff's deputies returned to the home with a K-9 unit and, after a short search, discovered Reed's body about 100 feet from his house.

Gerace said it is believed Reed, 51, was the victim of a homicide. An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday to officially determine the cause of death, but when Reed's body was found, deputies noted multiple gunshot wounds. It is believed Reed lived alone at the time of the murder.

Gerace said the Sheriff's Office has no suspects, but the school has been notified and the murder is under investigation. Reed was not known to have any history of trouble.
