Remains Found In Nevada County Could Belong To Missing Hollywood Woman

Police have discovered human remains that they believe are that of the missing Hollywood actress Adea Shabani.

Adea Shabani went missing in February.

.

A final cause of death has not yet been determined pending toxicology results, however Shabani's death has been ruled a homicide.

The grave site was found on the banks of Dry Creek in the Spencerville Wildlife Area, in an area about 50 miles north of Sacramento, according to a statement from the Nevada County Sheriff's Office.

Shabani was apparently last spotted in the Tacoma, LAPD spokeswoman Rosario Herrera told the Los Angeles Times.

Los Angeles Police Department officials also confirmed they think 33-year-old Christopher Spotz - a man who they say was involved in an intimate relationship and possibly her boyfriend - was somehow involved in the missing woman's death, Capt. William Hayes said.

During the investigation into her disappearance, PC Hayes said Spotz and his fiancee drove from Los Angeles to her parents' home in Fort Morgan, Colorado, just outside of Denver. "But until I get more specifics out of the coroner's exam". He may have been involved in the actress' death but it's unclear.

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

The 25-year-old was last seen in Hollywood on February 23, having recently moved to the United States from Macedonia to pursue a modeling and acting career. The two reportedly met in acting school.

Shabani and Spotz had both been studying at the Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theater in Hollywood.

"We tried calling her, messaging her, emailing her, Facebooking her, Instagramming her-every way, nothing", said Antonio Esocvar, a friend.

Spotz took off, and officers with the California Highway Patrol gave chase until the pursued truck exited at Green River Road in Riverside County.

Hayes said detectives suspect that Shabani has been dead for more than a month. At some point, the investigation led authorities to a lake at the Woods Wildlife Area in Nicholas, California, but they 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. The chase led from Hesperia to the Corona area, where Spotz fatally shot himself, Hayes said.
