The parents of convicted cop-killer Eric Matthew Frein were aware of and fostered their son’s disdain for law enforcement that led to his slaying of state police Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II outside the Blooming Grove barracks three years ago, the officer’s widow alleges in a lawsuit. Tiffany Dickson, Dunmore, filed the survival and wrongful death action Thursday in Lackawanna County Court, seeking damages from Frein and his parents, Eugene M. and Deborah Frein of Canadensis.
In sweeping, simultaneous raids, the state police and the state attorney general’s office spent more than 10 hours Thursday accessing Lackawanna County computers and seizing boxes of evidence from several locations as part of a grand jury probe into sexual assault allegations at the county jail. Dozens of state troopers and agents descended on the jail at North Washington Avenue, its work release center on Spruce Street and the county’s Administration Building on Adams Avenue at around 8:40 a.m.
A fugitive wanted in Virginia for killing his cousin, shooting the victim 14 times during a dispute over the cleanliness of their home, was jailed Tuesday in the Lackawanna County Prison after his arrest in West Scranton. Jamel Nelson, 26, was taken into custody Monday evening outside 114 10th Ave., where he lived in a second-floor apartment, city police and the U.S. Marshals Service said. City police charged Nelson as a fugitive from justice.
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".
