'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.

Butler Township commissioners Monday appointed a long-time veteran of its police force as the new chief.

Hays was second in command of the department before his promotion, with the rank of lieutenant. He has been with the department for almost 35 years.
