A fatal shooting outside a Pasco grocery store in early 2015 came down to the difference in colors — red and blue — between two people, a prosecutor said Wednesday. Juan C. Melgoza, 42, was proud to be a member of the Norteños. The Pasco man rode around town on a red bicycle, with red painted tires and a red bandana hanging from the seat. The bike was with him Feb. 4, 2015, as he sat at a table in front of Fiesta Foods.
A Spokane woman admitted Thursday that she set up a young father to be ambushed and killed by her husband and his cousin. Mary A. Faucett befriended the victim after following him to a convenience store in December 2014, then called him hours later under the guise of a sexual hookup. Lorenzo “Richie” Fernandez Jr. drove to the meeting spot — the Stonegate Apartments on Road 68 — and waited in his car for Faucett. She never showed. Instead, her husband Kenyatta K.E.
Investigators weren’t able to locate any bullets fired at a Pasco man after a deadly confrontation outside a grocery store in 2015. Four little pieces of metal — fragments created from a bullet hitting a hard object like asphalt or concrete — were all that was found underneath a picnic table near Juan C. Melgoza’s body. Ashley Lucas, the Pasco police evidence technician, wore black gloves Thursday morning while showing jurors the size of a bullet fragment.
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".
