In an about-face that has left the Cronin family shocked, Andrew Lee, 34, today admitted the one-punch attack on Patrick, after spending more than a year denying any wrongdoing over the fatal incident. The plea came on the third day of his Supreme Court trial, with Patrick’s family understood to be relieved it means they will not have to endure a full two-week trial. Patrick, 19, became caught in a wild pub brawl at the Windy Mile on April 16 last year. He didn’t throw a punch.
After three-and-a-half days of deliberations a Victorian Supreme Court jury today ended years of mystery over the 2008 killing, finding 31-year-old Christopher John Lavery guilty.

Karen Chetcuti’s horrific ordeal at the hands of her evil Whorouly neighbour Michael Cardamone included being tied up, gagged, fed animal tranquilliser and injected with battery acid. Justice Lex Lasry sentenced Cardamone to life in prison with no parole at a hearing in Wangaratta this morning. Ms Chetcuti’s loved ones surrounded the police car as he was driven away from court to start his life in jail, some yelling “dog”.
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".
