Detectives are looking into whether human remains found in Nevada County are linked to the case of an aspiring model who went missing in Hollywood last month.
Spotz may have been Shabani's boyfriend, although LAPD have also not confirmed that.
A final cause of death has not yet been determined pending toxicology results, however Shabani's death has been ruled a homicide. The remains won't be positively identified until the coronor completes the autopsy on Wednesday.
The Los Angeles Police Department contacted the office Monday to notify sheriff's officials that they were working an active missing persons case in the area.
LAPD and sheriff's office investigators, along with anthropologists from Cal State Chico, responded to the scene and found the remains.
The search for Shabani intensified after Spotz, 33, led police on a chase east of Los Angeles after they attempted to pull him over and took his own life at some point during the stand-off.
Captain William Hayes provided reporters Tuesday with a timeline of events highlighting Shabani's disappearance from her apartment in Hollywood, reports of her being in the company of Christopher Spotz and Spotz's claim that the two had an argument in the Santa Clarita Valley.

A vehicle chase ensued, and Spotz eventually used a handgun to shoot himself in the head.
When Spotz committed suicide in a stolen pick-up truck on Thursday, police said they were still investigating Ms Shabni's disappearance as a missing persons case.
"We tried calling her, messaging her, emailing her, Facebooking her, Instagramming her-every way, nothing", said Antonio Esocvar, a friend. Hayes said detectives found nothing that corroborated that statement. 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.
