THE body found on the Queen’s Sandringham estate has been confirmed as Wisbech teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva.
The 17-year-old was identified by comparing detail from her palm with records held, which was further verified by DNA from her femur.
DCI Jes Fry, head of the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, and who is leading the investigation into the case said: “I shall now be liaising with officers from Cambridgeshire who have been working on trying to locate Alisa in recent months as a missing person. The information they provide will give me and the team an extra focus to the enquiry.
“I should add we are still trying to establish any activity which took place on or around the site during the time frame of the end of August to the end of September 2011.
“We would like to identify people who may have worked in that area or were involved in organising or running any specific events that may have taken place.”
Alisa’s family said in a brief statement: “We are devastated by the news of Alisa’s death. We wish to grieve in private and don’t want to speak with anyone from the press at this time.”
Anyone with any information relating to the incident should contact the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team at Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
