'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.

Police are investigating a possible case of child abuse in Mt. Oliver.

A man brought his girlfriend's motionless 2-year-old son to the borough police station about 4:30 p.m. Thursday and said the boy had been knocked unconscious by falling down the stairs, Mt. Oliver police Sgt. Matthew Juzwick said. The child was taken to Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville for treatment and Allegheny County Police were called to investigate, Juzwick said.

Paramedics told emergency dispatchers there were indications that the child may have been abused.
