The FBI has announced a $20,000 reward for a man wanted in the slayings of his two teenage daughters in 2008 in Irving.
Katherine Gilkinson, FBI spokeswoman, said Yaser Abdel Said has ties to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Said is accused of taking his daughters, Amina and Sarah, for a ride in his taxi cab under the guise of going out to eat on Jan. 1, 2008. He drove them to Irving, where he allegedly shot both girls to death inside the taxi cab.
Chaumont said the girls died of multiple gunshot wounds.
A capital murder-multiple warrant was issued for Said’s arrest.
On Aug. 21, 2008, a federal unlawful flight to avoid prosecution warrant was issued by the United States District Court, Northern District of Texas.
Said’s last confirmed sighting was in Irving in 2008.
He is 56 years old, 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds with a medium complexion. He has brown eyes and black hair. However, his physical features may vary in order to conceal his identity and he may or may not wear a mustache or has shaved his head.
Chaumont said the man was born in Egypt and might seek shelter in communities with Egyptian ties.
Said frequents diners including Denny’s and IHOP, and smokes Marlboro Lights 100s cigarettes. He may work as a taxi driver.
