Andrew Jonathon Belcourt is a changed man who is sincere and motivated about rehabilitation and has a strong desire to live a positive life, the defence said Thursday at a sentencing hearing for the murder case. On Feb. 24, a jury found Belcourt guilty of the second-degree murder of Leslie Hankel, a 52-year-old paranoid schizophrenic who lived alone in an apartment at 1260 Pembroke St. It was the second conviction for Belcourt.
Two men have now been charged in connection with the seizure of a quarter-kilogram of fentanyl — enough of the powerful opioid to kill thousands of people, Victoria police said. Tristan Keith Gordan Jenkins, 25, and Micah McClure, 38, have been charged with possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. The two were arrested Nov. 30 after a weeks-long investigation by police.
The husband of a RCMP officer killed on duty in April 2015 has launched a civil suit against the driver who killed her. West Shore RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett, 32, was killed when her marked police car was struck broadside at Goldstream Avenue at Peatt Road on April 5, 2015, by a truck driven by Kenneth Jacob Fenton. She and husband Bradley Aschenbrenner have two sons, Lucas, now six, and Emmitt, now three. The civil suit, filed in October, claims Fenton’s negligence caused Beckett’s death.
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".
