London: British detectives investigating the murder of a woman whose remains were found on the queen`s estate say they have identified the victim as a 17-year-old missing girl.

Norfolk Police say the decomposed body was that of Alisa Dmitrijeva, who was reported missing from home in August.

The body was found by a dog walker on New Year`s Day in woodland three miles (five kilometers) from the royal residence at Sandringham House.

Sandringham, in rural Norfolk, is a vast estate where Queen Elizabeth II and her family traditionally gather to celebrate the holiday season. The royal family is not implicated in the crime in any way.
