'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 women face prostitution-related charges after an investigation at the Golden Dragon Bodywork parlor on Freeport Road in Aspinwall.

Dong Zhou Liu, 48, of Chicago, was charged by Aspinwall police with promoting prostitution and criminal conspiracy and Wu Shuang Shuang, 40, of Flushing, N.Y., was charged with prostitution and two counts of criminal conspiracy.

Police raided the parlor, also known as KC Healthy Massage Therapy, on Wednesday at about 10:30 a.m.

Aspinwall police had received complaints about the parlor involving prostitution in August, according to the criminal complaint. The FBI began investigating soon after.

Officers found five customers and five other employees besides Shuang and Liu at the business. No other charges have been filed.

The building now is empty and closed off by police.

Preliminary hearings for Liu and Shuang are scheduled for 10 a.m. on Sept. 18 at Magisterial Judge Elissa Lang's office in Sharpsburg.
