Stuck/Jammed door

The driver side door on my 83 Cadillac(Fleetwood Broughm) is stuck closed. I cannot open the door or lift the locking mechanism(unlock the door). I tried spraying WD40 in the keyhole as well as inside where the door latches. The key will not work either and I'm afraid of breaking it off inside the door lock. What should I do?

For starters, get inside car, work the locking peg and inside handle at the same time. If you are lucky it may dislodge. Else, panel will need to come off for a closer look at the mechanism.
Hopefully nothing is broken and only needs a litttle lubrication.
