Sandringham Murder: Case to be Reviewed

26 September 2012, 00:00

Another police force is being brought in to review the investigation into the murder of a teenager on the Sandringham Estate at New Year.

Officers from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team yesterday confirmed that no further action will be taken against two men who were arrested in connection with the death of 17 year old Alisa Dmitrijeva and that the matter will now be referred to the Coroner.

Her remains were found on New Year's Day in some woods at Anmer on the Royal Estate in West Norfolk after she had disappeared from her home in Wisbech in August 2011.

Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry said 'Most investigations of this nature if they don't come to a satisfactory result and don't lead to a prosecution, it will be reviewed by someone from a different force. This happens luckily quite rarely but it is standard procedure.'
