Who Is Yaser Abdel Said?

Yaser Abdel Said is an Egyptian and according to the FBI a resident of the United States. He committed a heinous act, which is typical of those who are on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

Said is wanted for murder. He is suspected of killing his two teenage daughters in Irving, Texas. In February 1987, Said married Patricia Owens. Apparently, the marriage was extremely abusive. In addition, it would appear, that Said was extremely controlling of his two daughters who were named Amina and Sarah. For example, Amina showed up at school with bruises on her body and a split lip. Amina was 18 at the time of her death, and Sarah was 17. Also, Said is alleged to have spied on his daughters in an attempt to further control their behavior and life. Said is also alleged to have made death threats to his daughters, especially to Amina.

Yaser Abdel Said is a Muslim who is claimed to adhere to strict traditional Muslim standards of behavior. He felt his daughters were not adhering to this criteria, and that is the reason he is alleged to have killed them.

Apparently, on January 1, 2008, Said lured his two daughters into his taxicab. Once they were in the cab, he allegedly shot them in the cab. As they were dying, Sarah called 911 to report that she’d been shot and that she was dying. The audio of the 911 call can be found on YouTube.

Said drove his cab, with his dying daughter’s inside, to a hotel and left it there where the taxi and the girls inside were discovered outside a hotel by another cab driver.

Yaser Abdel Said successful evaded the police and vanished. Although he is Egyptian, there is no record of him flying to Egypt to escape. There are reports that Said may be driving a cab in New York City, and apparently, he’s been seen driving a cab around Newark Aiport in New Jersey. Said was added to the FBI’s Most Wanted List on December 4, 2014. The award for information leading to his capture is $100,000.

Said is said to have black and gray hair and he’s going bald. He has brown eyes and is 6’2″ and 180 pounds. He is said to have a dark brown spot below his face on his neck. To conceal his identity, Said may have changed his physical features. He is said to frequent restaurants such as Denny’s and IHOP and he smokes cigarettes. Said has ties not only to Texas and New York and Egypt but also Canada. Said should be considered armed and dangerous even though he loves dogs, such as German Shepherds.
