Body found on Queen's estate named
A woman found dead on the Queen's Sandringham estate has been named.
The body is that of Latvian Alisa Dmitrijeva, 17, from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk police said.
Her remains were spotted by a dog walker in woods on farmland near Anmer, about a mile from the main gate to Sandringham House.
Following forensic tests, police identified the victim, who went missing from her home in August.
Alisa's family said they were "devastated" at the news.
Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry, senior investigating officer in the case, said: "Family Liaison Officers have been sent to meet with close family this morning to provide the update.
"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 inquiry.
"I should also add we are still trying to establish any activity which took place on or around the site during the timeframe 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."
In a statement, Alisa's family said: "We are devastated by the news of Alisa's death. We wish to grieve in private."
Scientists determined the body was that of Alisa using palm records and DNA from her femur, police said.
