Who Is Adea Shabani? Missing California Actress' Body Believed To Be Found

LAPD looking at shallow grave that could be related to missing Hollywood model-actress

Adea Shabani, the missing actress who vanished from her Hollywood home last month, may be the body discovered in a shallow grave in a rural Nevada wildlife area, police believe.

Adea Shabani, 25, was last seen February 23 near her Hollywood home. According to the sheriff's office, detectives from both law enforcement agencies and anthropologists from Cal State Chico met at the scene Tuesday in an effort "to determine if the site is a grave site, and if so, whether any remains found are related to the LAPD's missing person case".

A native of Macedonia, Shabani moved to the USA less than two years ago to pursue an acting career.

Emma Joe, Shabani's friend, told KTLA that it was not like the aspiring actress to lose contact with her loved ones for this long, after Shabani's disappearance.

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.

"Our homicide detectives along with our coroner's division unearthed what appear to be the remains of an adult female", the Nevada County Sheriff's Office said.

'We can not say that conclusively at this point in time because the condition of the remains prohibited positive identification, ' he added, revealing that Christopher Spotz, a man authorities identified as Shabani's boyfriend, was 'somehow involved in her death'.

Shabani and Spotz, 33, of Studio City, were involved in a romantic relationship, Hayes said.

An autopsy on the body will be performed in which the identity, cause and manner of death will be determined. Her family has also hired a private investigator.

Concerned friends reported her missing after she failed to show up for an important acting class and stopped responding to calls or text messages.

Shabani, 25, was last seen in Hollywood on February 23.

On March 1, detectives went to Northern California, where Spotz's father lived, to try and glean more information about where Spotz and Shabani might be. The chase led from Hesperia to the Corona area, where Spotz fatally shot himself, Hayes said. On March 22, San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies found Spotz in his vehicle in the area of the 10 and 15 Freeways.

Shabani was apparently last spotted in the Tacoma, LAPD spokeswoman Rosario Herrera told the Times. They did eventually gather other information during the search that led them to the shallow grave where the remains were found on Tuesday.
