The burnt, naked body found on a Brooklyn beach Sunday has been identified as a missing 14-year-old girl.

Law enforcement sources tell NBC 4 New York on Tuesday that the body found in Gerritsen Beach was Shaniesha Forbes, who had been missing since Friday.

She was burned on her legs, arms and hands and was found face up on the beach. A law enforcement official tells NBC 4 New York that investigators also located a kerosene can and signs of a bonfire nearby.

The cause of death is still pending.
