My quest for evidence to solve murders from the '70s Maybe you can help? When you're obsessed, as I have been, with a series of unsolved murders from the 1970s, what you most desire is to find a box of evidence stored somewhere that, against all odds, contains the killer's DNA. Ultimately, that Don Quixote-esque quest for proof could determine whether a creepy Texas prisoner and convicted killer, Edward Harold Bell, truly did murder 11 girls in the Houston and Galveston area in the 1970s.
Lance Hindt, superintendent of the Katy Independent School District, was riding in an oversized truck along South Mason Road after Hurricane Harvey when he spotted a huge pool of floodwater that "looked like a lake." The lake engulfed Creech Elementary School and the surrounding neighborhoods. "I was shocked at the damage I was seeing," said Hindt, who grew up in Katy and returned last year to serve as superintendent.
In a state as old as Texas, there are bound to be supernatural occurrences and gruesome deaths throughout its history. At our own peril, Texas Monthly has sought out creepy tales of Satanic cults and eerie lights for decades. So this Halloween, indulge yourself in some candy and good ol’ fashioned Texas gore. A Kiss Before DyingA girl from the wrong side of the tracks, a gun, and a kiss have Odessa High School students spooked over fifty years later.
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".
