Default Rear Door stuck closed latch won't open

2001 LS 4 door.

Cannot get the rear left door open. Removed the inside panel, the lock and handle rods are moving fine. Can't seem to find a way to pop it open. Tried prying on a few things, no help. As a shot in the dark, I unbolted the door hinges, but it won't give.

Is it Sawzaw time??? I'd go Dukes of Hazzard style but the window does not go down far enough.... :-(
