'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.

Passers-by discovered what appeared to be human remains Wednesday evening in a wooded area of Hopewell, Beaver County, officials said.

County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossisaid she was called to the woods near Bocktown Road around 6 p.m. after someone found what appeared to be partial human remains and clothing down a steep, wooded hillside.

“It appears human, but we have to do a thorough investigation,” she said.

The coroner's office had not yet determined the identity of the remains, a cause or manner of death. The Hopewell Township Police Department and the Beaver County District Attorney's Office were also investigating.
