'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.

State police at Uniontown are seeking the person responsible for a stabbing that occurred early Saturday morning at a field in Dunbar Township.

Police said a party was being held in a field off Gettamy Road just after midnight. There were 40 to 50 people in attendance.

Travis Burnsworth and Cody Burnsworth, both of Dunbar, arrived on ATVs and joined in the party, police said.

According to police, Cody Burnsworth became involved in a verbal altercation with someone who allegedly struck a female.

Police said a fight started and Cody Burnsworth was stabbed once in the chest area.

A fight then ensured between Travis Burnsworth and the other man, who then stabbed Travis Burnsworth in the stomach area several times.

After the stabbings, police said, the man fled the area when someone at the party fired a gun into the woods.

The conditions of Travis and Cody Burnsworth were not available.

Police ask anyone who witnessed the fight and stabbing to contact them at 724-439-7111.
