This past weekend, the charred, naked remains of 14-year-old Shaniesha Forbes, a runaway from Brooklyn’s Flatlands neighborhood, were found. Now, recent developments in the case suggest Forbes was repeatedly bullied, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
Authorities claim Forbes left her Avenue l home Friday morning, telling relatives she was going to school; she never returned.
Forbes’ body was found lying face down on Gerritsen Beach Sunday morning at 7:15 a.m.
She was situated next to an extinguished bonfire and beer at the time. The fire isn’t suspected in her death because no smoke was found in her lungs. However, her legs, arms, and hands were burned.
