In a response to the wrongful death lawsuit filed against her following a fatal vehicle crash in June, tennis star Venus Williams claiming the victim was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

A group of Florida teenagers joked and laughed while they filmed a 31-year-old man as he drowned last week only a few feet away from them, PEOPLE confirms. As the man appeared to struggle in the middle of the pond before going under, the teenage boys — whom police said were all between 14 and 18 — cursed, jeered and mocked him from the shore, calling him a “junkie” and wondering if he was drunk. Only one of them voiced concerns about calling for help or providing aid. But none of them did.
More than seven years have passed since Amy Locane, the Melrose Place and Cry-Baby actress, killed someone else while she was driving drunk not far from her home in Hopewell, New Jersey. Now, as she has returned to a largely anonymous life after her prison sentence, Locane is speaking out in her first full-fledged interview about what happened, with Entertainment Weekly, in a story that traces her rise, fall and recovery.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
