queen elizabeth sandringham Queen Elizabeth has a murder mystery on her hands. Or at least on the grounds of her estateBy the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes … to Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England. Police say a woman’s body was discovered on the grounds and they have ruled it a homicide.

“A member of the public had been walking their dog in the area and had found the body of a female in a wooded area,” Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry, a Norfolk Constabulary, tells “Today.”

But he adds that “very little [is known] at this time.”

The reason a passerby was the one who discovered the sprawling grounds have footpaths and a park that are open to the public, which is also presumably how someone could kill a person or dump a body at the estate.

What is known is that the body was found less than two miles from the main house, which is where Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip have been staying as Philip recovers from heart surgery. The 19,000-acre estate is also where the entire Royal family spent their holiday.

The police have confirmed that the woman was young and had been where she was found for between one and four months. The autopsy has so far revealed no signs of accidental injury, shooting or stabbing.
