A private investigator who probed the 2008 case of a Texas taxi driver who allegedly murdered his daughters in an “honor killing” has appealed to the Department of Justice and other federal agencies to take over the investigation, saying local authorities have hopelessly botched the investigation.

Carrie Huskinson, who investigated murder suspect Yaser Said on behalf of a Dallas newspaper said without a fresh look from top-flight law enforcement agents, Said, who went into hiding after his daughters were found shot to death in his cab, may never be caught. Said is on the FBI’s “most wanted” list and authorities believe he could still be in the U.S. or possibly in his native Egypt.

“The Irving Police Department is hiding their failures in this case,” Huskinson told

She said cops in Irving, part of the Dallas metro area, failed to interview Amina and Sarah’s brother, Islam, or the boyfriends of the murdered teens on the night of the murders, even though they were available, said Huskinson.

Like several family members, Huskinson believes the sisters’ mother, Patricia Said, knows more than she has divulged about her husband’s actions and possibly, his whereabouts. Patricia Said, who had fled with her daughters, only to bring them back home where their father was waiting, could not be reached for comment.

Huskinson believes an investigation run by federal authorities could put more pressure on Patricia Said, which could lead to charges against her and information about her husband’s whereabouts. She claims Irving police allowed Patricia Said to remove all the computers from the house as well as documents for real estate owned in Yaser’s native Egypt after the Jan. 1, 2008, murders.

“The murders of Amina and Sarah scream conspiracy, not only to commit murder, but also to violate their civil rights,” said Huskinson.

Yaser Said was angry that his daughters were westernized and were dating American boys. In the days before they were murdered, the sisters had fled with their mother to an aunt’s house in Oklahoma after Amina was threatened at gunpoint by her father. Amina had gotten an apartment in Tulsa and hoped to start a new life with her sister, but their mother convinced them to go back to Texas with them to place flowers on their grandmother’s grave one last time. Days later, they were murdered and left for dead in a cab in the parking lot of the Omni Hotel in Irving.

Patricia Said’s aunt, Gail Gartrell, told she agrees with the private investigator.

“What Carrie has discovered is very accurate and far more than what any other law enforcement agency has done,” Gartrell said. “This was absolutely handled the wrong way.”

Lifetime’s “America’s Most Wanted” program is slated to air a segment on Yaser Said Friday night.

Calling on the feds, led by terrorist-friendly Eric Holder may not be the best idea. What Said might look like:

  1. Please do not forget the honor killing in Tampa, Fl. Where the daughter committed suicide by repeatedly banging her head on a coffee table. The police are cowardly refusing to investigate it. I imagine there are thousand of such cases every year and will increase with the muslim population

    • Of course they are not going to investigate it. If you remember, one of these articles on this site said that Florida Dept of Law Enforcement had trained 100 MUSLIMS as police officers ! Also it spoke of CAIR was trying to rid their training program of “muslim biased’ material. The more of these animals we allow in positions of authority the more you are going to see murderers go free.Murder is not a crime in alot of muslim countries.Quital (killing) is a part of Islam and commanded in the Quran as they say. They need to realize that BERETTA(2nd amendment) is a part of America and taught in our CONSTIUTION.

  2. You really expect someone from the current Muslim led administration to help in this matter? Wise up–Eric Holder can’t find his own ass in an elevator with both hands behind his back. He hasn’t done a damn thing for murdered Border Control Agent Brian Terry has he? Don’t bet on this pigs ability especially when his mixed breed pal is in the drivers seat at 1600….

    • I hope it is the liberal press and their families that the muslims come and kill first because they deserve it for turning a blind eye to it and not informing more people.That will also get one problem out of the way before we have to deal with these wild rabid animals. Only animals kill their own young so that tells you what species they are. They are the equivalent of Zombies. They will eat and kill everyone around them including each other and family.

      • They need to be shot like a rabid wild animal because anyone who would kill their own young IS a mad wild rabid animal. The mother who lured the two daughters back to be killed needs to be shot as well. Thats one stupid woman to help a stupid tyrant kill her girls. One bullet for each as directed by the constituion should suffice.
