It has been five weeks since anyone has seen or heard from Theresa Lockhart. The 44-year-old high school Spanish teacher from Michigan was reported missing on May 20 to authorities at the Portage Department of Public Safety. For weeks, officials and community members have searched for Theresa, and police have announced they are treating the investigation as a “possible homicide.”Here are five things to know about the case:1.
Recent weeks have been an emotional roller-coaster for the family of Conrad Roy III, who died after then-girlfriend Michelle Carter encouraged him to kill himself through a series of texts and phone calls. Last week, a Massachusetts judge found Carter, now 20, guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 18-year-old’s death. She faces up to 20 years in prison and her sentencing is scheduled for August 3. “It’s definitely been a highly emotional time,” Roy’s aunt Becki Maki, tells PEOPLE.
At first, officials said, a 19-year-old Texas mother claimed her two young daughters were ill because they probably ingested some wild flowers — but another story quickly began to emerge. On the evening of June 6, Amanda Hawkins allegedly drove her children to a friend’s house and left them in her vehicle overnight, where they endured the Texas heat for at least 15 hours while she was inside a nearby home with friends, according to law enforcement.
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".
