'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 man whose body was found inside his burning Pleasant Hills apartment has been ruled an accident, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said on Thursday.

William Ingold, 56, died of thermal injuries and smoke inhalation in the fire that erupted shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Neopolitan Suites on Curry Hollow Road, the spokesman said.

Alvin Henderson, chief of Allegheny County's Department of Emergency Services, said the fire was in the rear bedroom area of the third-floor apartment. Police and neighbors made their way into the apartment to attempt to rescue Ingold but were driven back by the heat and heavy smoke, Henderson said. The county fire marshal is trying to determine what started the fire.
