- CMPD is searching for a carjacking suspect who most likely fell into a creek while running from the cops early Tuesday morning. Investigators don't believe the man is still alive saying he may have been swept up in the high, swift waters. Searchers don't even know who they're looking for, because police say the other carjacking suspect, James McCorey, who has been caught, won't give them a name or description of his accomplice.
- UPDATE: A second 15-year-old has been charged in the murder of Zachary Finch. He has been charged with both armed robbery and homicide. Due to his age, his name has not been released. A 15-year-old is charged with the Father's Day murder of a college baseball player, police said. Zachary Finch, 21, was shot and killed on Sunday, June 18 while trying to buy a phone he found on sale through an app. He was gunned down on Farmer Street in west Charlotte, marking the city's 43rd homicide.
- There was hardly a look of remorse on the face of Jesus Lopez, the man charged with setting fire to Woodscape Apartments in east Charlotte on Monday. In fact, he was smirking while at court today. Lopez reportedly set the apartments ablaze in an attempt to take revenge on his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend. In court, he denied being the ex-boyfriend of the girl he's accused of targeting. But his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend told FOX 46 Charlotte that she feels guilty.
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".
