The NYPD released a sketch late Wednesday night of a “person of interest” in connection with an explosion that killed a Queens landlord. George Wray, 73, died Tuesday, four days after suffering severe burns from an explosive device that detonated when he opened a package found outside a home he owned on 222nd Street in Brookville, Queens, police said. He was burned on more than 80 percent of his body. Police do not believe Wray or anyone who lived at the address was the intended target.
The NYPD released a sketch late Wednesday night of a “person of interest” in the death of a Queens man Tuesday, four days after he suffered severe burns when an explosive device attached to a package he opened detonated. George Wray, 73, a landlord, was burned on more than 80 percent of his body Friday after he opened the package outside a home he owned on 222nd Street in Brookville, police said. Wray died of his injuries Tuesday at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, the NYPD said.
Suffolk police charged a Ridge man late Thursday night in a case of road rage, one week after his reckless driving sent a another car careening into a thicket of trees off the William Floyd Parkway, and its driver to the hospital with multiple injuries, authorities said. Robert Ferrara Jr. 19, who authorities said left the scene after the Ridge crash, was taken into custody just before 11 p.m. Thursday at the Seventh Precinct in Shirley, police said.
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".
