Evanston police this morning say they’re still trying to learn the identity of a man found shot to death on the lakefront Sunday.

Commander Tom Guenther says the man, believed to be about 30 years old, carried no identification and police have been unable to determine who he was or how he came to be on the private beach in the 900 block of Edgemere Court.

Police are also awaiting forensic test results to establish the cause of death, although police suspect the death may have been a suicide. The cause of death was still listed as undetermined after an autopsy Monday.

The man was found with a gunshot wound to the head and a revolver was found at the scene.
