California police have positively identified the remains of an aspiring actress who vanished from her Hollywood home last month.

Adea Shabani, 25, was found over 400 miles (645km) away from her apartment buried in a shallow grave in a remote wildlife area of northern California.

Nevada County Sheriff’s officials said she was identified by her tattoos.

Police suspect a man they identified as her boyfriend, Christopher Spotz, was involved in her presumed murder.

Spotz killed himself after a chase and standoff with police last week.

Shabani was born in Macedonia and attended high school there before moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.

Her mother had flown from Macedonia, and hired a private investigator to aid in the search.

The private investigator told KABC-TV in early March that a $25,000 reward was being offered for her whereabouts.
