'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.

BOSTON — Teresa Heinz Kerry on Saturday walked out of a Boston rehabilitation hospital nearly three weeks since she had a seizure at her home on Nantucket.

“It was amazing, a miracle,” the heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune and wife of Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement.

The 74-year-old is expected to make a full recovery at home with out-patient treatment, according to Glen Johnson, a State Department spokesman.

Doctors ruled out a brain tumor, heart attack or stroke as the cause.

Heinz Kerry, the widow of former Sen. John Heinz, thanked the staff of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston.

“They are the kindest people, who love what they do and do it superbly well.”

Heinz Kerry has an estate in Fox Chapel and is the chair of The Heinz Endowments, Downtown.
