Vallejo police continue to investigate last week's discovery of a body buried in a shallow grave near the waterfront, and are hoping someone will step forward and help with an identification, police said Monday.

The discovery near Lemon and Derr streets is being investigated as a possible homicide or a "highly suspicious" incident, Capt. Jim O'Connell said.

An autopsy was performed Monday, but police are still unsure of the person's gender, race or approximate age.

However, police believe the individual could be a male. O'Connell said.
