Yaser Abdel Said added to FBI's ten Most Wanted list
DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas-area taxi driver accused in the 2008 shooting death of his two teenage daughters has been named as one of the FBI's 10 most-wanted fugitives.
Federal and local authorities said Thursday that 57-year-old Yaser Abdel Said (sy-EED') is wanted for capital murder. A reward for information leading to his arrest has been increased from $20,000 to $100,000.
The bodies of the daughters, 18-year-old Amina and 17-year-old Sarah, were found on New Year's Day 2008 in a cab at an Irving hotel. Investigators say they went with their father under the pretense of getting something to eat.
Irving police spokesman James McLellan says the motive is unclear but it's believed Said was upset by his daughters' relationships.
Said was a native of Egypt who lived in Lewisville, northwest of Dallas.
