TAMPA, Fla. - Police chief Brian Dugan wants the amateur detectives to let the real detectives do their jobs. Rumors are circulating as to who killed four people in Seminole Heights. One rumor led Tampa police to have a conversation with a person. "We have put this poor person through the wringer," Dugan said during a meeting with the NAACP on Thursday. "We believe their story." Dugan admitted that the investigation has been challenging and that it's not moving as fast as he would like.
TAMPA, Fla. - Concerns of racial profiling following the vague description of a suspect wanted for a string of murders in Seminole Heights drove about 30 people to meet with Tampa police on Thursday. The meeting, hosted by the Tampa NAACP, also brought out concerns that anyone can be a suspect. There are more officers in the neighborhood that are stopping more people because a murder suspect is on the loose, not because of racial profiling, Dugan said.
TAMPA, Fla. -- The reward for information leading to an arrest in four unsolved murders in Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood is now at $91,000. Wednesday, Tampa’s Police Chief Brian Dugan said they’ve received more than 450 tips since Tuesday’s murder of 60-year-old Ronald Felton. Police say Felton was shot in the back several times just before 5 a.m. as he was crossing the street to a church where he regularly helped feed the homeless.
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".
