BROOKLYN (PIX11) – Police are investigating after a woman’s burned and naked body was found on a Brooklyn beach Sunday morning.

Officers say she was a young black woman believed to have been in her late teens or early 20’s, but her identity remains a mystery.

There was speculation that she could have been a victim of Superstorm Sandy, but police ruled that out because her body was not badly decomposed.
