Wisbech: New Teen Murder Inquiry

26 January 2012, 11:00

Detectives investigating the murder of a Wisbech teenager have established more information surrounding her death.

The body of 17 year old Alisa Dmitrijeva [pictured - right] was found at the Queen's Sandringham estate on New Years Day by a dog walker. 

The scene was immediately cordoned off and a forensic examination was carried out.

A DNA profile and a palm print later identified the remains as those of Alisa, who was reported missing from Wisbech on 6 September 2011.

Alisa, who was originally from Lativa, was last seen in King's Lynn on the 31st of August 2011.

Alisa was reported missing on Wednesday 6th September.

Now, detectives investigating her death have established that she is likely to have spent time in the early hours of 31 August 2011 in Snettisham beach car park.

Officers are searching the area today (Thursday) - with the emphasis on finding her mobile phone and other objects which may have belonged to her.

DCI Jes Fry from Norfolk Police, who is leading the investigation in Alisa's death, said: "I would still ask the local communities in Wisbech and King’s Lynn to think back to the August bank holiday and following week in September last year, and to get in touch if they have any information about Alisa’s whereabouts during this time. 

We particularly want to hear from members of the Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian communities who may have known Alisa. 

We have had multi-lingual posters put up in key locations to encourage people to come forward and we are in the process of trying to have an appeal played on radio stations listened to by these communities.

As well as sightings of Alisa herself, I am particularly keen to try to find her black LG GM360 mobile phone, or to hear of any sightings in the Kings Lynn and Wisbech area of the bottle green P-registration Lexus GS300 that Alisa was last seen in on 31 August 2011."

Anyone with any information relating to the incident is asked to contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team at Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
