Body found in Indiana lake may be that of missing Michigan doctor

Police have told the parents of a missing Michigan doctor a body recovered from a northwestern Indiana lake may be that of their daughter, a private investigator working the case said on Monday.





Teleka Patrick went missing on December 5 after attempting to check into a hotel in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she lived, according to Jim Carlin, a Michigan investigator her family hired about three months ago to look for her.

"From my own investigation, I'm confident that in all probability this is Teleka," he said.

Authorities recovered a woman's body in Lake Charles in the Town of Porter on Sunday after a fisherman reported seeing it floating in the water.

The lake is near the spot where an Indiana State Police trooper found Patrick's car abandoned along Interstate 94 on December 5.




An autopsy will be performed on the body this week, state police said in a statement.

Patrick, who was 30 when she was reported missing, was a first year psychiatry resident at the Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine.

It is unclear why she left Michigan and drove to Indiana and why she was attempting to rent a hotel room in the city where she lived, Carlin said.

"The whole thing has been very, very dubious," said Carlin, noting that the hotel turned her away because she did not have proper identification or enough money.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
