A Harris County Sheriff's deputy was fired Friday afternoon for her alleged role in the death of a man outside Denny's earlier this year. The victim's family calls it a step in the right direction. The family of the victim, John Hernandez, spoke to the media Friday evening at a town hall. "For it to have taken this long, it's kind of hard to believe that everything was done correctly," said Melissa Hernandez, a cousin of the victim.
HOUSTON - Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo believes it will be people in the community who will lead to solving the murder of 11-year-old Josue Flores. The chief took questions from the media Wednesday afternoon, one day after the District Attorney's Office announced it was dropping murder charges against Andre Jackson because DNA results were deemed inconclusive. "We know that there's a killer out in the community," said Acevedo.
HOUSTON - He's still considered a suspect in the brutal murder of Josue Flores, 11. However, Andre Jackson is getting ready to walk out of jail. Prosecutors made the stunning announcement Tuesday that they simply don't have enough evidence against Jackson. It’s the second time charges have been dropped against a suspect in the case. Now, the Flores family is asking the community to help police find the one thing they need: concrete evidence.
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".
