Missing Model Adea Shabani's Body Found in Shallow Grave in North California

Police believe body found in shallow California grave is missing actress Adea Shabani

The body found in a shallow grave in rural Nevada County has been identified as 25-year-old Adea Shabani, an actress who's been missing since February. "Christopher Spotz was somehow involved in her death and we believe this to be a homicide", the LAPD said in a statement, "however, until the conclusion of the autopsy and our ability to examine the evidence related to the recovery of that evidence we won't be able to determine that definitively".

A person who police believe was Shabani's boyfriend shot and killed himself last week after leading police on a vehicle chase in a stolen Toyota, the Los Angeles Times reported.

After she was reported missing, police questioned Spotz, who said they were on a road trip to north California when an argument erupted, and that he let her out of the auto on the side of a freeway never to see her again.

Spotz, 33, had a fiancée while he was dating Shabani, police said.

On Tuesday, the Nevada County Sheriff's Office and their coroner's division, revealed that they had found the remains of a woman in a shallow grave in the Spenceville Wildlife Area in Penn Valley, California.

"We can not say that conclusively at this point in time because the condition of the remains prohibited positive identification", he continued, adding that they believed Shabani's boyfriend, Christopher Spotz, was "somehow involved in her death".

The BJP expects that the wins will reaffirm the faith of party cadres that modi-shah duo are still unbeatable. Elections on the remaining 58 seats were held because those holding them will retire in April.

Shabani moved from Macedonia and had been in Los Angeles less than two years, according to her friends. Her family also had hired a private investigator and announced a $25,000 reward for any further information leading to her return.

"We believe it to be a homicide".

Adea Shabani vanished in February.

Police then made a decision to placed a want on Spotz's vehicle - a 2015 Toyota Tacoma truck - in order to conduct further investigations. Spotz had previously told detectives that he and Shabani were driving to Northern California when they got into an argument and he dropped her off along a road in Santa Clarita, though that story did not add up. Sheriff's officials say Shabani suffered blunt force trauma to her head but an exact cause of death is still under investigation.

Earlier in the investigation, police said they had traveled to the home of Spotz's parents in Northern California to gather more information.

Spotz, however, fatally shot himself last Thursday off the 91 Freeway in Riverside County after a lengthy police chase.
