The other day I caught word about how Baltimore police detective of 18 years, Sean Suiter, was gunned down with his own weapon in a Baltimore neighborhood. On face value, it looks like the typical criminal situation: A criminal (bad guy) shoots a police officer (good guy). What happened afterwards was pretty crazy too. The neighborhood where Suiter was shot went completely under lockdown. Some residents were reported saying martial law had been enacted.
A homeless man who has been accused of dismembering his dead wife in Kansas City, then living with her body parts and his two children in a storage unit, is now a suspect in what appears to be an unrelated killing in Palm Springs. Justin Tod Rey was charged with murder by local prosecutors on Wednesday and Palm Springs police have requested a warrant for his arrest. Rey is a suspect in a killing that happened May 10, 2016 in Palm Springs, police Sgt. William Hutchinson said.
On Nov. 15, rapper Lil Peep, real name Gustav Ahr, died from a suspected overdose. He was found in the back of his tour bus, unconscious after taking an undisclosed amount of Xanax. From one account, his crew didn’t react at first because they thought he was just asleep. How ironic, his people thought he was asleep because the drugs he took were basically sleeping pills, which is a critique of modern-day hip-hop: it’s music made for zombies. And that is a real critique.
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".
