FBI raises stakes in hunt for man wanted in '08 killing of daughters
by Perry Chiaramonte
The FBI is hoping to jump start the seven-year hunt for a Texas man suspected of murdering his two daughters by putting Yaser Said on its top 10 most wanted list and raising the reward for information leading to his arrest.
Authorities believe Said, an Egyptian national who drove a taxi in the Dallas area, shot daughters Sarah, 17, and Amina, 18, to death on Jan. 1, 2008. Their bodies were found in his cab in the parking lot of the Omni Hotel in Irving. Relatives say Said was enraged that his daughters had adopted a western lifestyle at odds with his strict Muslim beliefs.
Family members and officials hope the FBI's renewed effort will turn up the heat on Said, who may have fled to his homeland.
