Jurors on Wednesday, the second day of Shaquan Lee-Seales' murder trial in New London Superior Court, viewed video and photographs taken by investigators on the foggy morning of Dec. 11, 2015. A pink-tinged video taken by state police Detective Jeffrey Payette zoomed in on six 9 mm shell casings ejected from a handgun into a group standing near the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Grand Streets.
New London Police Sgt. Robert Pickett heard a report of shots fired in the Grand Street area minutes before the end of his shift on Dec. 11, 2015. He ran to his cruiser in the back parking lot of city police headquarters and raced to the scene. Within minutes he would be securing a crime scene and giving out assignments to the officers he supervised. It was the beginning of a homicide investigation that would last for months.
Norwich — Attorney Richard J. Perry, recently promoted to supervisor of the public defender's office in Superior Court in Norwich, said he loves his job because he gets to meet interesting people every day. The "funny and smart" people he meets every day happen to be accused of crimes and unable to pay a lawyer. "There's a misconception that criminals are not very bright," Perry said during a phone interview. "That's wrong.
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".
