East Rochester, N.Y. --- On Thursday at 9 p.m. 13WHAM News presents an hour-long look at “13 Stories In 50 Years” of broadcasting.
The list was compiled with collaboration from the some of the most veteran reports and journalists in Rochester, all working at 13WHAM.
One of the stories that made that list is the tragic disappearance of four year-old Kali Poulton of East Rochester in 1994.
13WHAM News Reporter Patrice Walsh was among the first journalists on the scene and covered the more than year-long search for Poulton. Walsh was also among the first journalists on the scene in Rochester in the fall of 1995 when investigators finally discovered Poulton’s body and later announced the arrest of Mark Christie.
Walsh at the time was also the mother of a daughter who was the same age as Poulton.
13WHAM News Anchor Ginny Ryan was also a young mother at the time and she formed a unique bond with Kali’s mother Judy Gifford while this story unfolded over many years.
