You may need a locksmith the open it for you..

It may be releasing but it's stuck to the molding ... Try spraying it with a hose and pour some "Joy" in the seams. Don't pull so hard as to damage the molding when it opens. Good luck


WD 40 is not the answer. Next time before you ruin a lock, try some powdered graphite.
