During the first day of Jermaine Baker's attempted murder trial Monday, prosecutors framed him as a jealous husband in a damaged marriage who couldn't stand the idea of his wife seeing someone else. Baker, of Aurora, snooped on the phone of his then-wife and found out she'd been seeing someone new, according to prosecutors. About six months into the new relationship, on Aug. 27, 2014, Baker is accused of trying to kill the other man.
Aurora police released a photo Thursday of a man suspected of taking equipment including a starter pistol from a security guard at an East Side bar where two men were killed in a triple shooting last March. Police say they want to talk to the man "in reference to an altercation" he had with a security guard about 1 a.m. Jan. 10 at a tavern on the 700 block of South Lincoln Avenue. Police did not elaborate on the altercation.
Two men have been charged with the armed robbery of a 38-year-old Aurora man outside his home on the city's Far East Side. Ameen Salaam, 23, of the 15000 block of Oak Street, Dolton, and George Pittman, 24, of the 100 block of North Menard, Chicago, are both charged with single felony counts of armed robbery with a firearm. Salaam is also charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
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".
