BROOKLYN (PIX11) – A body found naked and burned in Marine Park, Brooklyn has been identified as that of a missing 14-year-old girl.

Shaniesha Forbes was last seen Friday.

Her body was found partly buried in the sand in Gerritsen Beach.

Police say her burns would not have been life threatening, and so far, her death has not been ruled a homicide.

They’re now waiting for the results of an autopsy.
