VALLEJO, Calif. -- The death of a man whose body was found off of Interstate Highway 80 in Vallejo Sunday morning is considered suspicious, a police lieutenant said.

The man, a 48-year-old Vallejo resident, was found on the shoulder of a westbound Highway 80 off-ramp near Interstate Highway 780, Vallejo police Lt. Kevin Bartlett said.

A passerby who discovered the man's body reported it to the California Highway Patrol around 7 a.m. and Vallejo police also responded to the scene, Bartlett said.

It appears the man died sometime during the night, according to Bartlett.

Investigators are working to determine the circumstances surrounding the death, he said.

The man's name has not been released pending notification of his next of kin, according to Bartlett.
