Norfolk: Two arrested in Sandringham estate teen murder inquiry are released on bail
TWO men who were arrested on suspicion of the murder of teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva have been released on police bail.
The men, aged 28 and 31, are both from the Wisbech area. They were arrested in King’s Lynn this morning and have been released on bail after being questioned in connection with the offence. Both men have been released on bail until July.
Miss Dmitrijeva’s body was found by a dog walker on New Year’s Day less than two miles from Sandringham House, where the Royal Family had been spending their Christmas break.
After unsuccessful tests to obtain a full DNA profile, identification of the victim was made a week later by comparing detail from her palm with records held which have been further verified by DNA from her femur.
The last confirmed sighting of the teenager was in Friar’s Street, King’s Lynn, in the early hours of August 31.
Detectives also believe she had attended a beach party at Snettisham on the night of August 30 and officers searched the beach in January for clues, including Miss Dmitrijeva’s mobile phone, which has not yet been recovered.
Cambridgeshire police launched an appeal to find Miss Dmitrijeva after she was reported missing by her family on September 6. She had been due to enrol with the College of West Anglia the day after she was reported missing.
