'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.

The death of a 25-year-old North Huntingdon woman who drowned Friday in a residential swimming pool has been ruled accidental, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner.

The cause of death for Ashley Vasunda was drowning as a result of seizures caused by an unspecified medical disorder, forensic investigator Alison Bixby said.

According to North Huntingdon police, officers and North Huntingdon EMS responded to a call of a residential drowning at 2:30 p.m. in the township's Ridge Road area.

Police officers and emergency personnel pulled Vasunda from the pool. She was taken to UPMC McKeesport, where she was pronounced dead.
