Sounds like the plastic clip that connects the lock has broken however regardless of fault the inner door panel has to be removed to diagnose and repair.It could also be inner door lock assembly.

linkage on inside of door has come undone. take off inside door panel and you will find a small rod that goes to the lock mechanism where the door closes opposite the hinges. follow the handle to the door lock.the nylon bushing may have broken.they are cheap to purchase at auto part stores.

It sounds like the linkage connecting the door handle to the latch has disengaged....you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal in order to see the inside of the door....

The child safety lock should stop the door from opening from the inside as that is it's purpose however the external door handle should open the door. It sounds as though the actuating rod has disconnected some how from the door latch mechanism. this often happens when a "slim Jim" or hanger has been used to open the door incorrectly. You will have to find a way to get the door open so this can be repaired. Your best bet is most likely to have a dealer do this as I can think of no way to access the door release parts without damaging the interior door panel with the door closed.
