1996 Buick Regal passenger door

I can’t get my passenger door open. The car has electric door locks, they are working, the door does have a key, it works, both handles seem ok, but the door does not unlatch. I can’t get the inside panel off since it is closed. I’m considering trying pop a lock, but I thought maybe one of you might have an idea first.

Probably a rod has popped off from a broken nylon connector but what is odd is that niether handle works. There are several new lock out tools so maybe there is one that can access the latch itself.
