Two Men Held Over Body On Royal Estate
Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenager whose body was found on the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
The pair, aged 28 and 31 and from the Wisbech area, were detained in King's Lynn and are being questioned at a police station in the town.
The human remains were discovered by a dog walker on January 1 this year.
A DNA profile and palm print identified them as those of missing Latvian 17-year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva.
Her remains were found in a field near the village of Anmer, less than a mile from Sandringham House where the royals were in residence for their Christmas break.
Miss Dmitrijeva was reported missing from Wisbech on September 6 last year.
They believe that before her disappearance she spent the early hours of August 31 in a car park at Snettisham beach.
The car park is less than six miles from where the body was found.
Miss Dmitrijeva lived with her grandmother Lidija Nesterova, from Wisbech, and had studied beauty at West Anglia College.
Speaking after the discovery, she said: "Our family has been left devastated and in a state of grief and sorrow at the sad and untimely loss of our beautiful daughter, granddaughter and sister Alisa.
"We have read about distressing things like this in the paper happening to other families but we never thought anything would happen to us.
"Our hearts have been broken in the way Alisa was taken from us and we hope no other family has to suffer as we have."
