Men, from Wisbech area, on bail until August
Two men arrested on suspicion of the murder of teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva have been re-bailed by police today.
The men, aged 28 and 31 and from the Wisbech area, were arrested in King’s Lynn on Tuesday, May 1.
Miss Dmitrijeva’s remains were found by a dog walker in a copse on arable land at Anmer, near Sandringham, on New Year’s Day.
A DNA profile and a palm print identified the remains as those of 17-year-old Alisa, who was reported missing from Wisbech on September 6 last year.
Both men have been re-bailed until August pending further enquiries.
The Latvian-born teenager’s grandmother Lidija Dmitrijeva recently paid tribute to her granddaughter.
Speaking through a translator, she said: “We are still very upset at the loss of our beautiful daughter, granddaughter and sister Alisa. She was a very friendly girl, had very good marks at college and had a lot of friends, but did not use drugs.”
Originally from Riga, Miss Dmitrijeva arrived in England two years ago when her father, Olegs, and Viktorija, her younger sister, came to live with her grandmother in a rented semi-detached house in Wisbech.
Although the last confirmed sighting of her was on August 31, detectives also believe she had attended a beach party at Snettisham on the night of August 30.
Officers searched the beach in January for clues, including Miss Dmitrijeva’s mobile phone, which has not yet been recovered.
Her body was cremated in King’s Lynn and transported to Latvia where the ashes were interred in a cemetery just outside Riga.
