Default latch assembly broken on driver side door

So sad but I locked my doors the other day and when I came out every other door opens but the drivers door. It's LOCKED and locked tight.I can't get in or out of it. The Lexus Dealership (on the phone because it's over an hour away) thinks it's the latch assembly broken the pin/screw is binding the door latch, but we have to get the door open to verify.

Anything I can try or attempt to get the door open? Unlocked?

oh I forgot its a 1993 ES300

I am in the same boat. I have ripped my door panel off. I took it to a shop and they messed with it for 45 minutes with a slim jim, a screwdriver and nothing.
