Who hid and protected Texas honor killer Yaser Said for 12 long years?

33

At long last, Yaser Said, who shot and killed his two daughters Amina and Sarah in a cold-blooded honor killing, has been apprehended.

12 long years later, Amina and Sarah Said’s murdering father has been arrested…. in Texas. The network that protected him should be brought to justice and indicted as well.

He was in Texas all along.

We covered the Said honor killing extensively, and it was apparent, right from the start, that Said had help, a lot of help, in evading justice.

Sisters, Amina, 18, and Sarah, 17, were each shot to death by their father in the back of his cab. They were lured back home after running away to escape their brutal father.

“Oh my God, I’m dying,” were 17-year-old Sarah Said’s last words, recorded in a harrowing 911 call released by Irving Police in Texas, United States of America.

After a series of death threats and allegations of physical and sexual abuse, on New Year’s Day in 2008, Sarah Said and her sister Amina Said were found brutally murdered in their father’s taxi in Texas.

At the time of their murder, friends of the girls said their father was Egyptian Muslim and critical of popular American lifestyles.

“He was really strict about guy relationships and talking to guys, as well as the things she wears,” said Kathleen Wong, a friend of the dead teenagers. “I’m sure that it was her dad that killed her.”

Wong says the girl’s father was abusive and that Sarah, especially, lived in fear. “She’s always told me that she was always so scared of her dad,” says Wong. “Even at school if a teacher joked around like, ‘I’m gonna tell your parents about this’, she would like totally flip out and start crying like, ‘please don’t tell’.”

In her recorded 911 call, Sarah named her father as the killer.

Yasar Said shot them because of anger over their dating of non-Muslim boys and their Western lifestyle.

”He followed them everywhere, and he recorded their every move,” said Ruth Trotter, a family friend, of home videos that show the father with his two teen daughters before their violent deaths in December 2007.

Yaser Said had an underground network protecting him. They, too, must be prosecuted.

Police said double-homicide suspect Yasar Said may be in hiding locally, receiving help from an inexplicably supportive community despite the horrific crimes he is accused of.

For years after the murders, their violent brother, Islam, would threaten, stalk, and harass anyone who pursued their killer.

FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive Yaser Abdel Said Now in Custody

FBI,

Yaser Abdel Said, a capital murder suspect wanted in connection with the homicide of his two teenage daughters, Amina and Sarah, was taken into custody without incident today in Justin, Texas, by the FBI’s Dallas Field Office. Said was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on December 4, 2014. Said is currently in federal custody and will soon be transferred to Dallas County.

“The FBI-led Dallas Violent Crimes Task Force has worked tirelessly to find Yaser Abdel Said. These experienced investigators never gave up on their quest to find him and pledged to never forget the young victims in this case,” said FBI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno. “Said was placed on the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List nearly six years ago for the heinous act he committed against his daughters. His capture and arrest bring us one step closer to justice for Amina and Sarah. We want to thank our partners at the Irving Police Department for working with us to apprehend this dangerous individual.”

“On January 1, 2008, the Irving Police Department opened a murder investigation after two young girls were found shot to death. Since that night, the members of the Irving Police Department and our partners with the Dallas FBI have tirelessly pursued justice for Amina and Sarah,” said Irving Police Chief Jeff Spivey. “Even after 12 years of frustration and dead ends, the pursuit for their killer never ceased. Today’s arrest of their father, Yaser Said brings us closer to ensuring justice is served on their behalf.”

Said took his daughters Amina (18) and Sarah (17) for a ride in his taxicab on January 1, 2008, under the guise of taking them to get something to eat. He drove them to Irving, Texas, where he allegedly shot both girls inside the taxicab. They both died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Based on an investigation by the Irving Police Department, on January 2, 2008, a capital murder-multiple warrant was issued for Said’s arrest. On August 21, 2008, a federal unlawful flight to avoid prosecution warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Northern District of Texas.

The search for Said was coordinated by the FBI’s Dallas Violent Crimes Task Force, which is composed of FBI special agents and officers from the Carrollton, Dallas, Garland, Grand Prairie, and Irving Police Departments and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
