'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Teen singing star Austin Mahone, who was scheduled to perform a sold out show at Pittsburgh's Stage AE on Oct. 29, has had to cancel his tour.

On Thursday, the singer, 17, shared a photo of himself on Instagram in a hospital gown with the caption: “I've never felt so bad.” Earlier he tweeted, “I have a bad flu 103 fever and I can't move.”

Later in the day, the singer's camp issued an official statement saying he is postponing until 2014 the MTV Artist to Watch Presents Tour.

The statement said Mahone “is now on strict Dr.'s orders to stay on rest and will need to reschedule all dates on the tour. ... Ticket holders for the sold out tour will be notified of the new 2014 dates and all details as soon as possible.”

“I can't believe this is happening its my first tour I'm so upset. I feel like I'm letting you all down,” wrote Mahone on Twitter.
