'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.

A Butler man died of natural causes while hunting in Cowanshannock on Tuesday.

A group of friends found Thomas M. Heim, 53, of East Christie Avenue, Butler, on the ground near his tree stand off Spring Road about 5:30 p.m., according to Armstrong County Deputy Coroner Brian Myers.

“He died of a heart attack, and there is no suspicion of foul play,” Myers said. “Since it was ruled as natural causes, we don't plan to conduct an autopsy.”
