DALLAS, TX (KLTV) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas has announced a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest of a man authorities believe killed his two teenaged daughters.
Yaser Abdel Said, 56, is wanted for murder and is believed to have ties to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He may also have ties to the New York City area, Canada and Egypt. His last confirmed sighting was in Irving in 2008.
Said is 6'2" tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds. He has brown eyes, black hair and a medium complexion. Authorities warn that Said's physical features may have been altered in order to conceal his identity. He may or may not have a mustache and it is possible that he now has a shaved head.
The suspect was born in Egypt and may have ties to Egyptian communities. He frequently visits diners including Denny's and IHOP. Said smokes Marlboro light 100s cigarettes and may be working as a taxi driver.
On January 1, 2008, Said and his two teenaged daughter, Amina and Sarah, were riding in a taxi together with the understanding that they were on the way to a restaurant. The taxi was traveling in Irving when Said allegedly shot both girls to death inside the cab. Both died from multiple gunshot wounds.
Based on an investigation by the Irving Police Department, a capital murder warrant was issued for Said's arrest. A federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued by the United States District Court in August 2008.
Said is believed to be armed and dangerous. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Dallas FBI at 972-559-5000. Tips can also be submitted online at
