'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.

A missing hunter was found dead during a search in Kittanning Township on Saturday.

State police said they were notified that Richard Herbert, 66, of Ellwood City, was missing around 7:40 p.m. after he went to retrieve a tree stand earlier in the day.

Kittanning Township, Elderton and Kittanning Hose Co. 6 fire departments aided in the search and Herbert's body was discovered near his vehicle in the woods behind the McGregor's Trailer Park about two hours later. Police said the death was not a hunting accident and did not appear to be suspicious.

An autopsy was to be performed Sunday.
