It has been two years of hell for the family of Alisa Dmitrijeva who was found on the Sandringham estate after going missing in August 2011.
And now Det Insp Marie James, who is in charge of the case, is appealing for more information to unlock the mystery of how the 17-year-old’s partially clothed body ended up hidden for months in the isolated woodland between Anmer and Sandringham.
Det Insp James said: “She was a vibrant teenager with her whole life ahead of her. She socialised with a large network of people from the eastern European community and her family have been robbed of her life.
“I really want people to come forward to help me solve her death so I’m in the position to find the answers that her family are looking for and bring those people who are responsible to justice.”
Det Insp James and the major investigation team are making a fresh appeal on the second anniversary of Alisa’s disappearance.
It is still not known how the Latvian teenager died, despite a post-mortem and an extensive range of tests.
Det Insp James said: “The circumstances she was found in, I believe, are suspicious and people are involved.”
The team believe members of the eastern European community in the Lynn and Wisbech area may hold the answers they need.
Det Insp James said: “I am hoping that this two year anniversary will give people the courage to come forward with any information, even if that is rumours they have heard.
“No matter how insignificant they think the information is I would urge them to come forward and help me solve the death of Alisa.”
The team may be running a poster campaign along with posting tweets and appeals in eastern European languages.
Det Insp James said: “I am hopeful we will establish how she died but I need the public’s in help in doing that.
“The family are heartbroken. They just need to know what happened to her. I am still hopeful we will be able to give them closure.”
