- Williamson County authorities have a new tool to help them locate missing persons and wanted criminals. The Hutto Police Department just hired a K-9 officer who happens to have a blood hound. Officer Evan Fraley is a new member of the Hutto Police Department. He brought with him a huge asset to the city and beyond. "I got her at 12 weeks old and she's been with me ever since,” he said.
- This Thanksgiving Day will mark 35-years since Travis County deputies found the body of a young woman murdered and left in the cold. At a time when families come together to celebrate, hers was in mourning. And that dark cloud of loss has never lifted as the crime remains unsolved. "She was such a promising, intelligent, ambitious and thoroughly good young person. To have her life cut short like that is a tragedy,” said Rebecca McCormack.
- The man who murdered a Hutto police officer will spend the rest of his life in prison. In 2015 Colby Williamson climbed inside Chris Kelley’s patrol car and fatally struck Kelley. It took jurors less than two hours to give him the maximum punishment allowed on Monday. Prosecutors asked jurors to give Williamson the maximum punishment, life in prison.
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".
