Remains Found In Nevada County Could Belong To Missing Hollywood Woman

While Shabani has not yet been found, a man authorities identified as her boyfriend fatally shot himself in California Thursday night in a stand-off with police - and authorities believe the vehicle he was driving may contain clues to Shabani's disappearance. They also said they believe her boyfriend, 33-year-old Christopher Spotz, was involved in her death but could not elaborate how as they continue to investigate.

"At this point and time, we believe that those remains are the body of Ms. Adea Shabani", William Hayes, commanding officer of LAPD's Robbery Homicide Division, said at a press conference, reported the NY Daily News.

Shabani, 25, was last seen on security camera around 1:15 p.m. on February 23 near her Hollywood home, police said.

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. The Nevada County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday the investigators found human remains in a shallow grave in a bank of the Spenceville Wildlife Area around 8 a.m. "We can not say that conclusively at this point in time because the condition of the remains prohibited positive identification". Spotz said he pulled off the freeway and let Shabani out of the auto - and hadn't seen her since.

While police were unable to make an immediate identification of the body found, they stated that an autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday to determine the victim's identity and cause and manner of death.

She came from Macedonia and had been in Los Angeles less than two years, according to her friends. The family had offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to her recovery. Surveillance video obtained by the LAPD showed Shabani and Spotz in an elevator in her apartment. As part of the investigation, detectives could not corroborate details of Spotz's account and continued to look into his story.

"A search of that area uncovered what is believed to be a shallow grave", Bringolf said. At some point, information led authorities to the lake at the Woods Wildlife Area in Nicholas, California, but were not successful in finding anything.

LAPD issued a warrant for the vehicle to be stopped and, consequently, deputies with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Station located Spotz and the truck near the intersection of freeways I-10 and I-15.
