Body Found in Brooklyn Nature Reserve Identified as Missing Teen Shaniesha Forbes

A body that was found naked and burned in a Brooklyn nature preserve last weekend was identified as missing teen Shaniesha Forbes, the niece of a New York Police Department sergeant, the NY Post reports.

Shaniesha Forbes, who was a bullied 14 year old student at the Academy for Young Writers in East New York, was last seen Friday. She had disappeared from her home several times in the past.

The NY Post reports Shaniesha Forbes’ body, with her face, hands and legs burned, was found face up in the sand Sunday morning at the boundary of Marine Park and Gerritsen Beach, near the remnants of a bonfire, officials said.
