'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.

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett on Thursday night said he's concerned to hear reports on an investigation of his son-in-law, a Philadelphia narcotics police officer.

Several media outlets, citing anonymous sources, reported that Corbett's son-in-law is being probed by the FBI and police Internal Affairs.

Corbett said: “I was surprised and concerned to learn about the allegations regarding my son-in-law Gerold Gibson. Susan and I continue to give our family our love and support.”

The Philadelphia Police Department said Thursday an officer was placed on administration leave as a result of an investigation but gave no details. The officer's name wasn't released because he was not arrested or charged with a crime.
