'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.

West Virginia junior redshirt linebacker d'Vante Martinez Henry, 21, of Moore, Okla., is being held at North Central Regional Jail on $100,000 bond on a felony charge of sexual assault.

According to the criminal complaint turned into Monongalia Magistrate Court by Detective Nick DeMedici, a woman claimed Henry had assaulted her on Sunday in an apartment.

She told detectives Henry entered her room in the early morning hours and physically forced her to have sex and that when she told him to stop he said “shut up” and continued.

Henry admitted having sex with the woman but claimed it was consensual, according to the complaint.

Henry was dismissed from the Mountaineer football team on Thursday morning, coach Dana Holgorsen said in a statement:

“There was strict parameters put in place that he had to abide by in order to play next season,” Holgorsen said. “The allegations made against him are troubling and very serious.

“He is no longer a Mountaineer.”

Henry is a 6-5, 205-pound linebacker who came to WVU from Arizona Western College. He was late enrolling in school and it was decided to redshirt him this year.

Henry chose WVU over Iowa State, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Texas Tech and Utah.
