'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 Butler County Coroner's Office has identified a resident of a Lawrence County care facility who died after being found in Lake Arthur Thursday.

Bystanders pulled Dennis Sallmen, 52, from about 3 feet of water off Lakeview Beach on Lake Arthur's North Shore around 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Sallmen was with residents from a New Wilmington area care home, park officials said.

The manner and cause of Sallmen's death is still pending, as the coroner's office is awaiting toxicology results.

The coroner's office did not identify which nursing home the man was a resident in.
