Sandringham Murder Latest: DNA Tests Provide No Clues

Detectives say they're unable to tell the identity of a woman whose remains were found at Sandringham from the latest DNA tests.

Norfolk Police say the most recent tests to identify remains found at Sandringham on New Year's day have not provided any new information.

Results from samples which were taken during the Post Mortem yesterday afternoon (Tues 3 Jan) have not provided a DNA profile, and therefore the identity of the victim has not been established.

Further testing is being carried out, which will take an additional 24 hours before results are available. Officers will also look at more traditional methods of identifying the victim, which may take longer.

The body is described as a young, white, adult female, aged between 15 and 23 years old, which has been at that site for a period estimated to be between a month and up to four months.

Further searches of the area around the site, off Kings Avenue in the village near King's Lynn, will continue tomorrow (Thurs 5 Jan).
