  • Search for missing model leads LAPD to suspected shallow grave

The remains discovered in a shallow grave in Northern California have been positively identified as belonging to missing Hollywood actress and aspiring model Adea Shabani.

He added that they believed Shabani's boyfriend Christopher Spotz was "somehow involved in her death". "Adea Shabani. We can not say that conclusively at this point in time because the condition of the remains prohibited positive identification", said William Hayes, the commanding officer of LAPD's Robbery Homicide Division.

However, a source close to the investigation told KTLA sister station KTXL in Sacramento that remains have been found at the location, and may be those of 25-year-old Adea Shabani, an aspiring actress who vanished last month under suspicious circumstances. Authorities had not yet commented on any potential link between Spotz's suicide and Shabani's disappearance. Authorities believed the auto had been "possibly used in a homicide which had occurred in Los Angeles County".

"We can not say that conclusively at this point in time because the condition of the remains prohibited positive identification".

Shabani, who would have turned 26 earlier this month, graduated from high school in Skopje, Macedonia, and attended college in Paris, according to her Facebook profile.

According to NBC-4 Los Angeles, days after Shabani disappeared, her friends went to the LAPD saying they had received an anonymous phone call from someone claiming to have seen Shabani placed in the bed of a truck by Spotz. Security camera footage last caught Shabani leaving her apartment with Spotz.

"Something happened and I believe it to be somewhat untoward", he said at a downtown Los Angeles news conference.

Hayes explained that the pair was leaving for a trip to Northern California. He said an autopsy on Wednesday would confirm whether the body is that of 25-year-old Adea Shabani. Their argument ended with Spotz dropping her off when they were driving through Santa Clarita. That same day, Hayes said, Spotz and another woman - his fiancee - drove to his family's home in Colorado.

Detectives issued a warrant for Spotz's truck. On March 22, San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies found Spotz in his vehicle in the area of the 10 and 15 Freeways.

Last Thursday night, a North Hollywood man authorities suspect was involved in Shabani's disappearance fatally shot himself during a law enforcement chase from Hesperia to the Corona area.
