Ar­rests made over Alisa mur­der

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

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.”
