Arrests made over Alisa murder
TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a Wisbech teenager.
It comes exactly four months after the body of 17-year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva were found on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate at Anmer in West Norfolk on New Year’s Day.
The men, aged 28 and 31 and from the Wisbech area, were yesterday being held in custody at King’s Lynn’s Police Investigation Centre for questioning following their arrest in the town that morning.
The Latvian national was reported missing from Wisbech on Tuesday, September 6.
The human remains discovered in a copse on arable land by a dog walker were identified as hers thanks to a DNA profile and palm print.
In January, her grandmother, with whom Miss Dmitrijeva lived, issued a statement on behalf of the family.
She said: “Our family has been left devastated and in a state of grief and sorrow at the sad and untimely loss of our beautiful daughter, granddaughter and sister Alisa.
“Our hearts have been broken in the way Alisa was taken from us and we hope no other family has to suffer as we have.”
She added: “Alisa had just finished college and I proudly look after her certificates which she never knew she achieved. She went missing just before they were delivered. We will never know how bright her future might have been.”
