'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.

One Franklin Regional student, sophomore Greg Keener, remains hospitalized at Forbes Regional in Monroeville as of Tuesday morning.

Keener returned to the intensive-care unit last week for monitoring, hospital officials said, but was listed in fair condition.

Keener's parents, Rick and Julie, released a statement Tuesday morning about his condition:

“Our son, Greg, remains in fair condition at Forbes Hospital after sustaining life threatening injuries during the tragic mass stabbing incident at Franklin Regional High School on April 9. Greg has made great progress in recovering from his injuries, he remains in the Intensive Care Unit where he can be closely monitored and cared for with the highest level of sophistication possible for an injury of this severity. Greg is expected to be moved out of the ICU in next few days.

“We are happy to report that Greg is alert and he is able to engage in daily activities including sitting in a chair, some walking, and watching the Penguins. We would like to thank everyone from our region and beyond, for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes on behalf of Greg. As we focus on our son's recovery, we also wish to express our gratitude to the staff at Forbes Hospital for the amazing medical care and compassion they have provided.

“We ask that the media respect our privacy during this time and look forward to sharing the good news when we are able to bring Greg home.”
