Grandmother tells of fears she might never see the killers of her granddaughter brought to justice
A GRANDMOTHER told today how she fears she might never see her granddaughter’s killer or killers brought to justice.
The remains of Alisa Dmitrijeva were found by a dog walker, on the Royal Estate, on New Year’s Day.
College of West Anglia student Alisa, 17, had gone missing from her home in Wisbech in August 2011.
Alisa’s grandmother, Lidija Dmitrijeva, in a statement issued through police, said: “Last year we had hope that we would see Alisa alive, this year we have nothing. The pain a year on is still raw.
“We cannot live without the answers to so many of our questions, questions that not even the police can answer so please can the person who knows what happened to Alisa come forward.

Alisa was reported missing by her family on September 6. She had been due to enrol with the College of West Anglia the following day.

She shared a rented semi-detached house in Wisbech with her grandmother, her father Olegs and Viktorija, her younger sister. Her mother also lived nearby.
