'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.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office has identified the driver killed in a high-speed crash in West Mifflin Monday.

Christopher Buzzatto, 24, of White Oak, died of burns and smoke inhalation sustained in a single-vehicle crash early Monday along Route 837 in West Mifflin, according to the autopsy report.

The medical examiner's office had to use dental records to identify the victim due to the severity of his burns.

Investigators said high speed was a factor in the accident, which occurred following a police pursuit that began on Lebanon Church Road and continued on Camp Hollow and Lebanon School roads.

Buzzatto was driving a Cadillac CTS-V.
