'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.

Investigators believe the EPA's outgoing boss went as far as using a pseudonym in her government-related private email dealings. Talk about “shadow government.”
