Men arrested over Wisbech teenager’s murder are no longer suspects

TWO men arrested on suspicion of murdering Wisbech teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva have been told they are no longer under arrest in connection with her murder.

However, the men aged 28 and 31, have been released on bail and could be charged with other offences that may be connected to the 17-year-old’s death.

Police issued a statement last night (Tuesday) announcing the men, who were arrested in King’s Lynn in May on suspicion of murdering Alisa, stating: “They have been informed that they are no longer under arrest in relation to her murder.

“However, they remain on bail and the investigation continues with a view to a file being submitted to Crown Prosecution Service with regards to any other offences that may have been committed in connection with Alisa’s death. Her death is still being treated as suspicious.”

How Alisa, a College of West Anglia student, died is still not known.

The teenager’s body was found on New Year’s Day on the Queen’s estate at Amner by a dog walker. She was identified by a DNA profile and a palm print.

Alisa, who originated in Riga, Latvia, was reported missing in September last year.

She had been living in this country for two years having arrived with her father Olegs and younger sister Viktorija. The family shared her grandmother’s home in Railway Road.

The last confirmed sighting of Alisa was on August 31 but police believe she attended a beach party at Snettisham on the night of August 30.

Officers searched the beach in January hoping for clues and also in a bid to find her mobile phone, which is still missing.

Anyone with information should contact Norfolk police on 101.
