Local murder featured on A&E crime show
by Patrice Walsh
William Klick had a big heart, according to his parents. They believe that may have cost him his life. Klick was killed in October of 2012, shot four times on Copely Street. Police and family members say Klick went there to help an ex-girlfriend, 35 year old Kathryn Makoroff. Makoroff and 30 year old Jeffrey Blunt are both charged in the murder.
The Klicks agreed to take part in the A &E crime show, The First 48 because they wanted to highlight the good work Rochester Police did on their sons case. They also hope this sends a message to anyone thinking about committing violence, that it just is not worth it.
The show starts as police respond to William Klicks murder. At the scene, they find money, his wallet and his car keys. They also learn he was shot four times. The investigation then leads back to Makoroff, who was a former girlfriend according to Williams parents. We see her arrested, and being questioned by police.
The suspects are both awaiting trial. They are scheduled to be back in court in December, when a trial date will be set.
The Klicks said their life will never been the same and they still dont understand why their son was killed. They wont watch the special when it airs, but will watch it at some point. They have never seen the crime scene and there are other parts of the video that will be tough for them to watch.
They hope they will learn more about why their son was killed.
The special is called Kiss of Death. It airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on A &E.
