Cops release 911 call made by girl found fatally shot with sister, TX

January 16, 2008 GMT

DALLAS (AP) _ What were likely the dying words of a 17-year-old girl found shot to death alongside her sister on New Year’s Day can be heard on a 911 recording released Wednesday by police, who are still searching for the girls’ father.

“Help,” says a crying voice, later determined by police to be Sarah Said. “I’m dying. Oh my God. Stop it.”

Amina Said, 18, and her sister Sarah were found shot multiple times in a cab outside a suburban Dallas hotel. A capital murder warrant has been issued for their father, Yaser Said, 50, who has not been seen since the Lewisville High School students were found dead.


Police could not immediately find the girls after Sarah called 911 from a cell phone around 7:33 p.m. on Jan. 1. Much of what she says in the recording is unintelligible, and the dispatcher’s repeated requests for her to provide an address went unanswered.

An emergency dispatcher received another call about an hour later from a hotel. The girls’ bodies were in a cab, one in the front passenger seat and the other in the back. The caller said he could see blood.

“They don’t look alive,” said the caller, whose name was deleted from the recording.

According to a police report, a family member told investigators that Yaser Said threatened “bodily harm” against Sarah for dating a non-Muslim.

Police documents also show that the girls’ mother, Patricia Said, fled with her daughters in the week before the girls were killed because she was in “great fear for her life.”
