LAS VEGAS - Two convicted pimps serving life terms in Nevada prisons inched closer to getting new trials this week, largely because of salacious allegations they've made about the vice cops who put them away. Attorneys for Ocean Fleming and Raymond Sharpe appeared before different judges in different courtrooms, but the arguments they're making are almost identical. And, as the I-Team has reported exclusively, the same allegations are being pursued by the FBI.
LAS VEGAS - Lieutenant Tom Melton is the target of a criminal investigation by the Nevada Attorney General's Office and the Metro Police Department. As of Tuesday, Melton was relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of the investigation, Metro spokeswoman Officer Laura Meltzer said. The I-Team learned this might have a connection to financial issues involving guardianship. Melton's attorney, Sean Sullivan blames Noel Palmer Simpson and April Parks for his trouble.
LAS VEGAS - More than 240 children have died in Clark County this year. While some of the deaths are the result of illnesses or accidents, some are the result of abuse. Adalynn Ramirez was just 2 years old when she died after a lengthy stay in the hospital. Her mother, Joanna Cabrera, is in prison after confessing to police she abused the baby. "That little girl was the strongest person you probably could've ever met," said Alejandro Ramirez, victim's father.
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".
