Body Found in Nevada County Identified as Missing Actress Adea Shabani

Body Found in Nevada County Identified as Missing Actress Adea Shabani”

A body found in a shallow grave is believed to belong to an aspiring model who vanished from Los Angeles last month. "Adea Shabani", a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told reporters during a press conference on Tuesday.

Spotz died by suicide on March 22 in a California stand-off with police - which only intensified the search for Shabani, 25, who has been missing since February.

Shabani was reported missing two days later, and Spotz eventually told police the pair had gotten into a fight during the trip, and he claimed he dropped her off in the Santa Clarita area and never saw her again.

Discrepancies in Spotz's alibi raised warning bells but he disappeared before police could track him down for further questioning. 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.

Despite what a friend told KTLA earlier, authorities have not positively identified the remains as Adea Shabani's; a cause of death was also under investigation, though police said they suspect she was the victim of a homicide. Spotz said he pulled off the freeway and let Shabani out of the vehicle - and hadn't seen her since.

Shabani came from Macedonia and had been in Los Angeles less than two years, according to her friends.

Shabani was last seen in Hollywood a month ago.

An autopsy is due to be performed on Wednesday. Her family hired a private investigator and offered a $25,000 reward for information on her whereabouts - but it turned up no answers.

"We also believe that ..."

Shabani and Spotz had both been studying at the Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theater in Hollywood. As part of the investigation, detectives could not corroborate details of Spotz's account and continued to look into his story.

Investigators had previously searched the Lake of the Woods wildlife area in Nicolaus, California to no avail before they found the remains in Nevada County, Hayes explained.

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.

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.
