Lawyers pressing a lawsuit over the death of an Erie County Holding Center inmate had the chance in August to question Sheriff Timothy B. Howard, the elected official who oversees the jail where Richard A. Metcalf Jr. was strangled. Howard was not present when jail deputies knotted a spit mask around Metcalf's neck, pulled a pillowcase over his head and denied him medical attention as he went into cardiac arrest.
The body of a 65-year-old resident of Randolph was found in the wreckage of a burning vehicle Tuesday, the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office said. Deputies identified the victim as Charles Troutman. Deputies found the body after a motorist called 911 at around 9:10 a.m. to say a vehicle had gone into a ditch along Mill Creek Road and caught fire. After the Sinclairville Fire Department put out the flames, deputies and the county's Fire Investigation Team said they found no sign of foul play.
A former cell block attendant for the City of Buffalo, who shoved a handcuffed defendant into a metal door and dragged him bleeding and nearly unconscious to an empty cell, was ordered Thursday to spend 18 months in a federal prison. "You are a prisoner now, just like that other fellow was," U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence J. Villardo told Matthew Jaskula, who sat before him in a faded blue jumpsuit issued by the Niagara County Jail, where he has been held in recent months.
You are sorry for your loss, and your family's loss, but no sadness for your victim, judge tells Buffalo cell-block attendant Matt Jaskula, who beat a defendant. Judge gives him 18 months in federal pen. https://t.co/i5FBLHcABb
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".
