LOS ANGELES Detectives believe an aspiring model and actress from Macedonia who had been missing for more than a month was killed and dumped in a shallow grave in Northern California, police said today.

A poster with a photo of Adea Shabani from Macedonia who vanished in February, is shown at a news conference Tuesday in Los Angeles.

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.

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

Shabani and Spotz, 33, of Studio City, were involved in a romantic relationship, Hayes said. LAPD had contacted the office Monday to notify sheriff's officials that they were working an active missing persons case in the area.

"We can not say that conclusively at this point in time because the condition of the remains prohibited positive identification", he said.

In 2017, the United States imported 34.6 million metric tons of steel from 85 countries. We are NOT going to say that "not resigning from Office" was at the top of the list.

"We are devastated", said John Jack Rodgers, the Academy's executive director, recalling that she was "growing immensely" in her craft. Investigators weren't able to verify Spotz's account, he said, prompting Robbery-Homicide detectives to take over the case.

He said LAPD and sheriff's detectives were at the site Tuesday with anthropologists from Cal State Chico "to determine if the site is a grave site, and if so, whether any remains found at this site are related to LAPD's missing person case". He died last week after shooting himself during a police chase.

'We believe it to be a homicide, ' the LAPD spokesperson said. 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.

When police couldn't find Spotz or his truck, Hayes said, they alerted other law enforcement agencies that they were looking for the vehicle.

"When I first heard that he had possibly been the one to have done this, I was just like, 'This is not the Chris I know, '" the man told KTLA. On March 1, Spotz and his fiancee - not Shabani - headed for his parents' home in Fort Morgan, Colorado. "He was whatever you needed at that moment".

Anyone with information regarding Shabani's whereabouts was urged to call the LAPD's Missing Persons Unit at (213) 996-1800.
