Laurie Wasserman Dann, 30, looked like a student teacher or visiting parent when she entered a second-grade classroom at the Hubbard Woods elementary school in Winnetka, Ill., on the morning of May 20, 1988. Then she pulled out a pistol and started shooting. By the time she stopped, one boy, Nicholas Corwin, 8, was dead. Four of his classmates were wounded. Another victim, a first-grader, had been shot in the bathroom before Laurie’s attack on the classroom. He would survive.
Sixty years ago, on a sweltering July 30, Michael Farmer, 15, and Roger McShane, 16, wanted to take a swim in the Highbridge Pool at Amsterdam Ave. and W. 173nd St. It was around 10:30 p.m., long after closing, but that rarely stopped neighborhood kids from taking a moonlight dip. On that night, as they had done before, Farmer and McShane slipped through a hole in the fence and headed for the pool. They did not realize they were walking into a war zone.
As of July 23, 1969, six young women had been murdered and dumped in remote spots around Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, Mich.All had been shot, strangled, stabbed, or subjected to acts of “unspeakable savagery,” author Edward Keyes wrote in his 1976 book “The Michigan Murders.”Most had been raped and mutilated. Whoever killed them was still on the loose. Law enforcement officials had issued urgent pleas to girls to stop hitchhiking.
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".
