The hunt continues for FBI’s most wanted fugitive, Yaser Abdel Said, of North Texas who vanished without a trace after he allegedly shot dead his two teen daughters in the back seat of his taxi cab.
Interpol, an International Criminal Police Organization, recently joined Irving police to locate Said, according to Daily Mail.

On January 1, 2008, Said – who is originally from Egypt – told his two daughters, 18-year-old Amina and 17-year-old Sarah Said, to join him in his taxi cab as he made arrangements to take them out to dinner, but unbeknownst to his daughters, he had other plans.
Before the night was over, a chilling 911 call was made from Sarah saying, “Help, help! My dad shot me, my sister. I’m dying, I’m dying!”
Afterwards, the 911 dispatcher could hear a barrage of gunshots before the phone went silent.
When Irving police reached their location, the Said girls were found dead in their father’s taxi cab, shot 11 times. According to reports, Amina died almost instantly while Sarah suffered a slow, agonizing death.
Police are calling the tragedy an honor killing.

Before Said allegedly murdered his daughters in cold blood, he made it clear that he didn’t want them dating. Once Amina and Sarah reached their teen years, Said became very strict, even going as far as “secretly videotaping their activities” to “ensure their obedience,” CNN reported.
“He always carried his camera everywhere,” said Patricia Owens who is the mother of Amina and Sarah.
“Yaser was videoing them to see who they was talking to and make sure they get on the bus. When they was at school, he would be taping them to see what they were doing… He put a recorder in Amina’s car. He would check her mileage. That was just the way that he controlled us.”
When Said discovered that his daughters were in relationships with American boys on December 24, 2007, he pointed his gun at Amina and Sarah and threatened to kill them. It was at that moment that the girls feared for their lives.
“Amina always knew that Yaser was going to murder her, it was just a question of when and where. She made Joseph promise that he would not harm himself, that when she dies he would live,” Amina’s boyfriend Joseph Trotter’s father said in an interview.
Owens and her two daughters, along with their boyfriends, moved to Oklahoma, but after a few days, they returned to Texas. Owens said in an interview that “I admit I made a mistake. I came back here. But I thought I was doing the right thing for Amina, for her schooling. I didn’t know I was coming back for my daughters to be murdered.”
Days after their return to Texas, Amina and Sarah Said were shot to death by their father.
Yaser Abdel Said vanished without a trace on January 1, 2008 and has been FBI’s most wanted fugitive ever since. If anyone has any information regarding his whereabouts, investigators asked to be reached at 1-866-THE-HUNT or www.cnn.com/thehunt.
