Texas 'honor killing' suspect Yaser Said could be hiding in plain sight as NYC cabbie, private investigator says
by Perry Chiaramonte
The Egyptian-born cab driver suspected in the 2008 "honor killing" of his two daughters in Texas because they were dating non-Muslim boys may be working at his old trade in New York, according to a private investigator who has tracked him.
Yaser Said fled his Dallas-area home after allegedly shooting daughters Amina, 18, and Sarah Said, 17, on New Year's Day in 2008 and is now on the FBI's list of most-wanted fugitives. Although he took his Egyptian passport and $9,000 when he bolted, Bill Warner, a private detective who has worked for Said's sister-in-law, believes he never made it out of the country. With family ties to New York and a large community of his countrymen to blend into, Warner says the odds are good the suspected killer is behind the wheel of a car for hire in the Big Apple.
"It's all he knows and I wouldn't be surprised one bit if he's there working as a taxi driver," Warner, who has worked on and off tracking Said, told FoxNews.com. "He could blend in at a metropolis like New York."
