Two men held over Sandringham body
Tuesday 01 May 2012
Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenager whose body was found on the Queen's Sandringham estate.
Norfolk Police said they had made the arrest earlier today in connection with human remains, identified as those of missing Latvian 17-year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva, which were found on the estate in Norfolk on January 1.
The men, aged 28 and 31 and from the Wisbech area, are being questioned at a police station in King's Lynn.
The body was found by a dog walker in a field near the village of Anmer, less than a mile from Sandringham House where the royals were in residence for their festive break.
Miss Dmitrijeva was last seen alive in August and police believe her body had been in the field since September.
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 about 30 miles from where the body was found.
Miss Dmitrijeva lived with her grandmother and had studied beauty at West Anglia College.
