A TEENAGER whose body was found on the Queen's estate died within days of her disappearance, detectives believe.
Norfolk Police have identified the remains found at Sandringham as those of Latvian Alisa Dmitrijeva, 17, from Wisbech, who was last seen alive on August 30.
Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry said the force was now focusing its inquiries on a one-week window up to September 6.
Unconfirmed sightings and other evidence suggest she is unlikely to have lived beyond this date, he added.
Mr Fry said: "Now that we have identified Alisa, we can carry out more focused inquiries to establish what happened to her.
"We particularly want to speak to anyone who may have seen Alisa between midday on August 30 and midnight on September 6.
"We know she was in both the King's Lynn and Wisbech areas during this time, and want to hear from anyone who has any information about her whereabouts over the eight days."
Two men had already been interviewed as part of the investigation into Miss Dmitrijeva's disappearance, he said.
They are known to have picked her up in a P-registered green Lexus in the early hours of August 31. This is thought to be the last confirmed sighting of her.
The men - described as acquaintances of Miss Dmitrijeva - told officers they dropped her off at Asda in Wisbech but this has not been confirmed by examination of CCTV footage.
Mr Fry said it was likely that these men would be re-interviewed.
He said: "She clearly knew these men and trusted them. We believe she got into the car voluntarily."
He dismissed speculation that she had been a sex worker or that she had a drug habit.
He added: "There is no evidence of either at this stage."
