'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.

Problems related to this week's weather resulted in the deaths of two Mon-Yough residents.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office said on Friday that a North Huntingdon Township woman died of natural causes after shoveling snow, while a Clairton man was an accidental victim of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The medical examiner's office said Brant McCray Sr., 60, was pronounced dead on Wednesday at 2:10 p.m. at his home along the 600 block of Park Avenue in Clairton.

Clairton first responders initially reported that there was an odor of natural gas there. At the time of the incident temperatures had risen from single digits into the 20s.

On Friday around noon, a mail carrier found Jenny Milo, 90, lying in the snow near her home along Herold Drive in North Huntingdon.

She reportedly was shoveling snow that had fallen the previous day. Approximately 3 inches of snow was reported in the Irwin area.

Rescue 8 paramedics were assisted by Circleville volunteer firefighters, who brought an automated external defibrillator with them.

Milo was taken to UPMC East where she was pronounced dead at 1:07 p.m. The medical examiner's office described her death as natural.
