Detective calls on feds to take over 'honor killing' investigation
by Perry Chiaramonte
A private investigator who probed the 2008 case of a Texas taxi driver who allegedly murdered his daughters in an "honor killing" has appealed to the Department of Justice and other federal agencies to take over the investigation, saying local authorities have hopelessly botched the investigation.
Carrie Huskinson, who investigated murder suspect Yaser Said on behalf of a Dallas newspaper said without a fresh look from top-flight law enforcement agents, Said, who went into hiding after his daughters were found shot to death in his cab, may never be caught. Said is on the FBI's "most wanted" list and authorities believe he could still be in the U.S. or possibly in his native Egypt.
"The Irving Police Department is hiding their failures in this case," Huskinson told FoxNews.com.
