- Monday marks three years to the day since Christopher Adams was shot to death during what investigators say was a robbery gone bad. His killing in northwest D.C. concluded with a quick arrest, and the suspect, Glenn “Spook” Walker was charged with first-degree murder while armed. But just days before the trial, the case—which appeared solid-- collapsed. Walker’s charge was dismissed, and he was set free. The case against Walker, known to many as “Spook,” had come together fast.
- A 13-page police report obtained by FOX 5 says the brakes of a fire engine failed and caused a crash that involved a D.C. police cruiser last week. This information contradicts what the fire chief initially said after the accident. When Engine 28 crashed into a D.C. police scout car last Monday, it was responding with lights and siren on down Porter Street to a reported fire on the other side of Rock Creek Park.
Police have released a video and photos of a person of interest in the homicide case of a lawyer found stabbed to death at a Northwest D.C. hotel. D.C. police say the person of interest was seen on surveillance cameras inside The Donovan Hotel at around 7:45 p.m. Monday. The victim found stabbed to death inside the hotel has been identified as 30-year-old D.C. resident David Messerschmitt. He was a lawyer who worked for the DLA Piper law firm and had been reported missing by his family.
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".
