Associated Press Published: May 1, 2012

LONDON (AP) — British police say they have arrested two men on suspicion of murdering a Latvian teenager whose body was found on Queen Elizabeth II's rural Sandringham estate.

The decomposed remains of 17-year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva were found by a dog walker on New Year's Day in woodlands three miles (five kilometers) from the Sandringham House residence where the royal family was spending the holidays.

Part of the nearly 31-square-mile (8,000-hectare) estate 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of London is open to the public.

Dmitrijeva was reported missing from her home in eastern England in August.

The men, aged 28 and 31 and from the nearby Wisbech area, were being questioned Tuesday at a police station.
