Alfred Zerries, who was found unconscious on Target Rock Drive in Lloyd Harbor on February 25, died Thursday morning at Huntington Hospital. Police say the 68-year-old Zerries was walking his dogs when he was found.

The investigation revealed the injuries were too severe to occur from falling down, and detectives believe he may have been struck by a car sometime around 9:56 a.m. Wednesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Second Squad at 631-854-8252 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.

Zerries is a famed artist who was born in New York City and graduated from Pratt Institute with a major in advertising. He has worked for more than 20 years as an art director, TV producer and creative director at a number of Manhattan ad agencies. He also taught advertising at The School of Visual Arts.

Zerries began to paint in the mid 1990s and has since been in over 225 national and international exhibitions, with his paintings winning awards in more than half those events. His work has been honored with 15 Best In Show awards. Continued acceptance has earned him the status of Elected Member or Signature Member in more than 30 distinguished societies.
