'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 former secretary and bookkeeper at Holy Sepulcher Catholic School in Middlesex, Butler County, who is accused of stealing more than $315,000 in tuition money and cash, has waived her charges to Butler County Common Pleas Court.

Lynn Tomlinson, 43, of Penn, had been scheduled for a hearing on theft and related charges on June 6. However, court records show that she waived that hearing. Tomlinson, who remains free on $400,000 unsecured bond, could not be reached. Her attorney, Stephen M. Misko of Butler, did not return a phone message Thursday.

State police said Tomlinson last year confessed to the thefts when school officials confronted her. She said she began taking money in 2007, and quit in 2011.
