Jerman Neveaux filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against 28 Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputies, accusing them of using excessive force when he was arrested in connection with the shooting death of Detective David Michel Jr. The deputies beat Neveaux, acting with "willful and wanton indifference" and "deliberate disregard" for his constitutional rights, according to the filing, made Thursday (June 22), one year after Michel's death and Neveaux's arrest.
A Jefferson Parish grand jury on Thursday (June 22) handed up an indictment charging a Lafitte man with repeatedly sexually abusing two girls. Kenneth Leblanc, 62, was charged with first-degree rape, sexual battery of a child under the age of 13 and sexual battery, according to Jefferson Parish court records. The victims in the case are now 35 and 16 years old. Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office detectives opened an investigation after the eldest victim contacted police on Feb. 21, authorities said.
The identity of a man suspected of committing a pair of East Jefferson armed robberies was apparently as plain as the hat on his head, according to authorities. Suspect Joshua Edwards, 32, wore a hat bearing the logo of his former employer, Royal House Oyster Bar, during or shortly after robberies in Metairie and Kenner, according to Glen T. Boyd, spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.
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".
