Young girl found dead on queen's estate identified

A young woman found murdered on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate had been missing for four months.

Police investigating the killing of Alisa Dmitrijeva (17), said she was identified by comparing details from her palm with records held.

The Latvian teenager, who lived in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, was last seen in King's Lynn, Norfolk, on August 31. Her body was found by a dog walker in woods at Anmer, near King's Lynn, on January 1.

Police want to speak to anyone who may have been in the area between the end of August and the end of September.

The site where the teenager's body was found is used regularly for pheasant and partridge shoots, often attended by members of the royal household. (© Independent News Service)
