Albert J. Silva, the Grass Valley man accused in the death of his 2-year-old son, faces multiple charges, including murder, authorities said. Silva, 38, was booked late Tuesday into the Nevada County Jail on charges of first-degree murder, vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, child cruelty, DUI and a probation violation. He has no bond, records state. Authorities say that Silva's son Quincy died after a late Monday wreck on Highway 20, near Harmony Ridge Road.
Quincy Silva, the toddler who died in a wreck this week, was killed by blunt force injuries to his head and neck. His death is considered a homicide, Nevada County authorities said Friday. The autopsy for Quincy — who was ejected from a vehicle Monday night when the car he was in overturned several times off Highway 20 — was completed Thursday afternoon. Results of a toxicology test, standard in most autopsies, are pending, Deputy Coroner Mike Sullivan said.
Sue Hoek will run unopposed for the District 4 seat on the Nevada County Board of Supervisors — one of eight candidates who face no opponent in this June's election — as she garnered no competition by the 5 p.m. Wednesday deadline to declare for her office. The race for sheriff, which shared the same deadline, is set at three candidates — John Foster, Shannan Moon and Bill Smethers. The deadline for most candidates to declare was last week.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
