12 Years In Jail For Peterborough Man Who Terrorised A Family And Then Robbed Them
Wisbech: Alisa Murder Update
Police say no further action will be taken against two men who were arrested in connection with the death of Wisbech teen, Alisa Dmitrijeva.
Officers from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team say the matter will now be referred to the Coroner.
The 17 year-old's remains were discovered on New Year's Day this year on arable land at Anmer, close to Sandringham.
She had disappeared from her home in Wisbech in August 2011.
Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry told Heart: "All the facts relating to the death of Alisa were submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service for consideration. A decision has been made that there is insufficient evidence to prosecute anyone for any offences at this time. Her family have been informed."
DCI Fry added: "Officers from both the joint MIT and Cambridgeshire Constabulary have worked tirelessly, since Alisa's disappearance was reported to us in September 2011, to establish the circumstances surrounding her death. This was a complex investigation with many lines of enquiry and I am personally disappointed that we will not be able to offer her family any closure in this case."
The investigation will remain open and any new information that comes to light will be considered.
William Armstrong, HM Coroner for Norfolk, will set a date for inquest in due course. Following the discovery by a dog walker at 4pm on 1 January, a DNA profile and palm print later identified the remains as those of Alisa, who was reported missing from Wisbech on 6 September 2011.
DCI Fry also told Heart: "It is a tradition in Lativa, that the family all meet at the graveside. They have only just returned to the country having been to Alisa's grave in Latvia where they met and had a service and had a service at the graveside.
We have been keeping them up to date with the inquiry as it's gone on, and therefore, in the words of her grandmother it isn't a surprise we've come to this point. But it's still disappointing for them. It's a difficult message to pass but it's one that I felt I had to do myself."
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority are asking residents if they'd support a rise of 1.9% to its proportion of council tax for 2017/18.
