Every day for the last 12 years, Arcelia Gonzales has asked God to bring her missing daughter back. So far, there have been no answers. And sometimes, Gonzales is afraid of what the answer may be. “Maybe I’m not ready,” she said. “Because if I do find what happened to her, I don’t know what will happen to me.”Felipa “Vickie” Gonzales disappeared into Albuquerque’s underworld in 2005 and is one of at least six missing women who police believe may have been additional victims of the West Mesa killer.
Interim Albuquerque Police Chief Mike Geier recently sat down with the Journal to talk about the West Mesa murders. Geier led the violent crimes unit and was on the task force that investigated the deaths of 11 women found buried on Albuquerque’s southwest mesa. Below are lightly edited excerpts from the conversation, organized by topic. “I can’t believe … that nobody else knew. Somebody else didn’t hear it in a bar, somebody bragging, somebody saw something on the street.
The shooting seemed to make no sense. A popular 17-year-old high school athlete killed by a bullet fired from outside a house during a summer get-together of teens. Friends said Jaydon Chavez-Silver, who was killed when a bullet hit him in the neck as he watched friends play cards, didn’t have a beef with anyone. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Late Friday, police provided a piece to the puzzle when they arrested a young man whom they believe was involved in the shooting that night.
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".
