'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.

Given a second chance, Duquesne landed guard Rene Castro, a freshman who is transferring from Butler.

Castro announced Wednesday he will join the Dukes men's basketball team. The 6-foot-2 guard will sit out the 2014-15 season, then have three years of eligibility remaining.

Castro had Duquesne among his finalists before he picked Butler. The Massachusetts native averaged 3.3 points in 12 games for the Bulldogs.

Duquesne also awaits signed letters of intent from recruits TySean Powell and Eric James.
