Dead Latvian on Queen's Estate

The remains of a woman found on one of Queen Elizabeth II's vast estates belong to a 17-year-old missing girl, British detectives said Sunday.

Forensic tests identified the decomposed body as that of Latvian Alisa Dmitrijeva, who was reported missing from her home in eastern England in August, Norfolk Police said.

The body was found by a dog walker on New Year's Day in woods five kilometers from the royal residence at Sandringham House. The royal family is not implicated in the crime in any way. Part of the estate is open to the public.
