'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.

Police in Fayetteville, N.C., have charged four men in the murder of a Uniontown National Guardsman who was shot when a robbery erupted during a party.

Two suspects are in custody in the slaying of Spc. Danny Ray McFadden Sr., 28, who was serving at Fort Bragg, police said. Warrants have been issued for two alleged accomplices.

Anthony Dwayne Hair, 25, and Thomas Wayne Carley, 24, are being held without bond in McFadden's shooting, which occurred during a house party on Westhill Drive in a residential neighborhood about 3 a.m. Monday, according to Lt. Todd Joyce of Fayetteville police.

There were about 15 people at the party when three men pulled out weapons and robbed the rest, according to police. Additional details have not been released. Another man who was shot at the party survived, the Fayetteville Observer reported.

Hair and Carley are charged with first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon, police said.

Carley surrendered to police on Friday afternoon. Police apprehended Hair on Thursday.

Warrants have been issued for Darrick Lynn Grissom and Antonio Terrell Johnson, both 24 and of Fayetteville, Joyce said.

McFadden, who attended Uniontown Area Senior High School, was a member of the Florida National Guard serving on active duty with the HHB 2nd Battalion 116th Field Artillery out of Lakeland, Fla., at Fort Bragg.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and unit members of Spec. Danny McFadden,” said the Facebook page of Bravo Bulldogs WTB on base. “Our hearts hurt from this loss. Rest in Peace, Danny. You will be missed by many and we will never forget you.”

Another post said he was “a genuine young man.”

McFadden was born on Aug. 2, 1984, in Uniontown. Funeral arrangements will be announced by the Dearth Funeral Home in New Salem.
