Los Angeles police today were investigating the discovery of a possible shallow grave in Northern California, but authorities would not say if the discovery is related to the search for a model and aspiring actress who disappeared from Hollywood last month. Shabani was last seen in Hollywood on February 23, according to an Los Angeles Police Department news release obtained by PEOPLE.

The LAPD said they believed the remains were those of Shabani, and that a 33-year-old man with whom she had an intimate relationship, Christopher Spotz, was a person of interest in her disappearance and ultimate death.

Lt. Rob Bringolf of the Nevada County Sheriff's Office said LAPD detectives were in the area Monday "actively working a missing persons case", which led them to the bank of Dry Creek in the Spenceville Wildlife Area.

The monthlong search for Shabani, a model and aspiring actress, came to a close this week when her body was found in the shallow grave 50 miles north of Sacramento. Investigators weren't able to verify Spotz's account, he said, prompting Robbery-Homicide detectives to take over the case.

"At this point and time, we believe that those remains are the body of Ms. Adea Shabani", an LAPD spokesperson said. Her family hired a private investigator and offered a $25,000 reward for information on her whereabouts - but it turned up no answers. Surveillance video obtained by the LAPD showed Shabani and Spotz in an elevator in her apartment. The two reportedly met in acting school.

"At this point in time, we believe that those remains are the body of Miss".

If approved, McConnell's bill would lift the federal restrictions on hemp and allow states to set their own hemp laws. There's much broader understanding now that hemp is a "totally different" plant than its illicit cousin, he said.


Hayes says detectives believe that Spotz was involved in Shabani's death.

About a week later, detectives went to Colorado to try to talk to Spotz and look at his Toyota Tacoma - the last vehicle in which Shabani was seen alive, Hayes said.

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

Spotz killed himself shortly after the pursuit ended, according to officials.

The chase and standoff started when San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies ran a license plate check and discovered Spotz was driving a stolen pickup truck that had been reported as having "possibly been used in a homicide which had occurred in Los Angeles County", a California Highway Patrol statement obtained by the Mercury News said.
