British police on Tuesday arrested two men in connection with the death of a teenager whose body was discovered on the Queen’s estate on New Year’s Day.
The identities of the two men -- aged 28 and 31, respectively -- were not immediately released.
Even though police are revealing few details surrounding the human remains found at the queen's Sandringham Palace, they say it's a murder that could have taken place up to four months ago. NBC's Michelle Kosinski reports.
Alisa Dmitrijeva, 17, was reported missing last September. The discovery of Dmitrijeva’s body by a dog walker near Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham Estate sparked the murder investigation.
The queen, who traditionally spends the Christmas and New Year’s holidays at Sandringham, was in residence at the time of the discovery, and police kept her informed.
Dmitreijeva moved to the U.K. from Latvia with her family in 2009.
