An aspiring actress who mysteriously disappeared from her Hollywood apartment last month is believed to be dead. The man that she was romantically involved with committed suicide Thursday after a police pursuit.
Adea Shabani, 25, a native of Macedonia, came to the United States fewer than two years ago to pursue a career in acting. She had been living in Los Angeles when she was last seen Friday, Feb. 23, 2018, near her home. Police confirmed that family and friends believe Shabani is dead.
Chris Spotz, 33, who is also an aspiring actor, was romantically linked to Shabani.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office said Spotz led officers on a police chase in a stolen truck on Thursday. The driver shot himself in the head as officers deployed a felony traffic stop.
