Baltimore police identified yesterday the person whose body was found in the basement of a Northwest Baltimore house as Brent Flanagan, 16, of the 4400 block of Pall Mall Road. The body - which had been stabbed and beaten - was found Thursday after firefighters had extinguished a fire in the house, in the 2600 block of W. Cold Spring Lane, according to city police and fire officials.

Flanagan's family declined to comment yesterday.

The house fire was confined to a basement apartment, police said.

Flanagan's body, police said, bore numerous stab wounds and severe injuries from a beating with an unknown weapon.
