Meet Shaniesha Forbes, 14, of East Flatbush, New York City.
This beautiful young lady, Brooklyn native, and lover of all things Justin Bieber, with endless possibilities recently ran away from home.
She was found naked, burned and partially buried body in the sand in Gravesend, four miles from her home, Sunday, January 6th.
But this isn’t the beginning of her story.
According to many family and friends at the Academy for Young Writers in East New York, say Shaniesha had recently had trouble with school bullies.
“Almost every day in science class, they would ask her the same questions . . . like why she would wear the same weave over and over again,’’ pal Tanasha Searls, 14, told The Post.
“I felt it was wrong for them to do. She was a really sweet person.’’
The cowardly bullies cried when they learned of her death, Searls said.
“They shouldn’t have bullied her in the first place,’’ she said. “They wouldn’t feel so horrible as they do now.’’
Another friend, Jonathan Ho, 16, said Shaniesha had a boyfriend and had relationship troubles. She was also upset over rumors about her that another boy was spreading.
Shaniesha had previously ran away from home before, but no one knows what prompted her latest hiatus.
But whatever the reason was, it didn’t justify her demise.
Shaniesha’s body 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. Her face, hands and legs were burned.
An empty container of kerosene and several beer cans were found near the corpse, the sources said.
“She was naked,” a law-enforcement source said. “She was burned. She was [partly] buried in the sand. It looks bad.”
Police said her death has not yet been ruled a homicide. The burns on her body were not life-threatening, and she suffered no other signs of trauma. Autopsy results were inconclusive.
Her Facebook page, depicts Shaniesha’s smile and interests.
It’s so unfair that a child with so much promise was never able to fulfill the life she had in store.
The one thing that sickens me more than this story itself is the thought of the children that caused her sadness and pain, weeping after her demise…
I hope the bullies are readdy for Karma, because I heard that she is one helluva bitch!
Rest In Paradise Shaniesha.
And may whoever caused her death Rot In Piss…
