'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.

Two people are facing prostitution charges after police raided a massage parlor in Aspinwall on Wednesday.

Dongzhou Liu of Chicago, the owner of KC Healthy Massage Therapy on Freeport Road, is charged with promoting prostitution and a female employee is charged with solicitation of prostitution after a months-long investigation by the Western PA Human Trafficking Coalition.

According to investigators, an undercover officer was propositioned by the female employee, prompting the charges.

“We're not going to tolerate it. It's that simple,” Aspinwall police Chief John Sabol said.

Several other people associated with the massage parlor were brought in for questioning but, so far, no one else has been charged.

The occupancy permit on the property has been temporarily revoked while police continue to investigate.

“I view it as a nice little town; seems like it doesn't fit here,” said Mark Immekus, who works nearby.
