'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 man who was fatally stabbed by a Penn Hills homeowner during a home invasion was identified on Friday as Devin Davis, 21, of the North Side, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Davis, who police said worked as an assistant chef at a Pittsburgh restaurant, was one of three men wearing ski masks who police said went into the garage of a home on Edinburg Drive around 7:30 a.m. Monday as a woman returned from taking her children to school. He was stabbed in the back during a struggle with the woman's husband.

The other two men fled and remain at large, police said. No charges have been filed against the homeowner, who was identified by neighbors as Eric Timbers, a power-lifter.
