UPDATE: Two men arrested on suspicion of murdering Wisbech teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva are bailed

TWO men from the Wisbech area arrested on suspicion of the murder of Alisa Dmitrijeva have been released on police bail.

The men, aged 28 and 31, were arrested in King’s Lynn yesterday and have been bailed until July.

Alisa’s body was found by a dog walker at Anmer - a remote part of the royal Sandringham Estate - on New Year’s Day.

It took more than a week to identify the human remains, but a DNA profile and palm print revealed it was the 17-year-old.

Alisa had been reported missing from Wisbech on September 6, last year.
