'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.

PHILADELPHIA — The widow of a Philadelphia firefighter has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the owners of a vacant warehouse that burned down in April 2012, killing her husband and another firefighter.

Fire Capt. Robert Neary and Lt. Daniel Sweeney died in the blaze.

Neary's wife, Diane Neary, says in a lawsuit filed Sept. 26 the owners failed to address years of complaints that the warehouse was a dangerous haven for looters, drug addicts, squatters and prostitutes.
