New York Murder Suspect Located By U.S. Marshals in Virginia

Alexandria, VA – U.S. Marshals Bobby Mathieson and Gerald Holt announce the capture of Anthony Robert Taglianetti, II. Taglianetti is sought as a person of interest by the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office in New York regarding the murder of Clymer Central School Superintendent  Keith Reed, Jr.

42-year-old Taglianetti, a former Marine, is suspected of going to New York and murdering Superintendent Reed within the last week. Chautauqua County Sheriffs put out a national all-points bulletin (APB) including a description of Taglianetti’s vehicle upon developing him as a suspect.

Deputy U.S. Marshals with the U.S. Marshals’ Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force (CARFTF) began investigating the whereabouts of Taglianetti upon learning that he is from Woodbridge, VA. Deputies were led from the Eastern District of Virginia to the Shenandoah County area in the Western District of Virginia after investigating various leads on the subject over the past few days.

Task force members spotted Tanglianetti’s vehicle in the Fort Valley Road area, conducted a felony traffic stop and took the suspect into custody without incident. Tanglianetti will be turned over to NY law enforcement officials for continued investigation.

The U.S. Marshals Service arrested more than 36,200 federal fugitives and 86,400 state and local fugitives in fiscal year 2011.
