The possible autopsy for missing medical resident, Dr. Teleka Patrick, is to be held today. Authorities look for medical records to determine whether it is in fact Patrick or not.
Patrick’s body is believed to have been found Sunday by a local fisherman in Lake Charles in Porter, Indiana.
The body was found only miles away from where Patrick’s car was found on I-94 on December 5, 2013.
Investigator Jim Carlin says the clothes on the deceased match the description of Patrick’s clothes that she was last seen in.
Much speculation has surrounded Patrick’s disappearance due to the many oddities involved. Patrick’s family described her as having a bright future, while her ex husband questioned her mental stability. The last video footage of Patrick was taken of her in the Radisson Hotel, though no one appears to know why she was there.
Early in the investigation the media learned of Patrick having a restraining order placed on her by Pastor Marvin Sapp in 2012, but authorities later said Sapp and the restraining order had nothing to do with Patrick’s disappearance.
Patrick’s family released the following statement, “Our family was informed that a body was found that may be our daughter Teleka Patrick. We are waiting for official confirmation from the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Department and have no comment at this time. Thank you for your continued prayers.”
