NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — State police are still trying to find the suspect involved in the shooting death two decades ago of a former Hudson Valley assistant schools superintendent.

Richard Aderson, of LaGrange, who worked for the Valley Central School District, was involved in a fender bender in February 1997 on Interstate 84 just east of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge.

The 47-year-old Aderson called Dutchess County 911 and reported that he had been shot during a verbal confrontation and that the suspect had fled. Aderson provided authorities with information about the suspect and the suspect's vehicle, but died from his injuries while being transported to a Newburgh hospital.

The suspect was described as a white male, in his late 40s to 50, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build and receding hair line.
