Indiana authorities have discovered the body of missing Michigan Doctor Teleka Patrick who was believed to have been stalking gospel singer Marvin Sapp.
On Sunday morning a fisherman contacted Indiana State Police to say he saw something suspicious in Lake Charles. Divers would later recover a female body dressed in dark clothing.
The lake was already search by the Michigan police and the FBI on January 23 but the search came up empty handed. Teleka who was from Michigan disappeared on December 5, after unsuccessfully trying to check into a hotel room.
At the time of her disappearance, Patrick’s car was found abandoned by an Indiana trooper on December 6 along Interstate 94 and near the lake about 15 miles east of Gary.
Police say an autopsy will be conducted this week to positively identify the body.
The Michigan doctor had been stalking a well-known local gospel singer, and even referred to him as her ‘husband’, a local newspaper reports.
Marvin Sapp, 46 filed a personal protection order filed against Dr. Teleka Patrick, who said Dr Patrick had visited his home and contacted his young children to get close to him.
Dr Patrick started her residency at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan last year before relocating to California to be close to Pastor Sapp.
WOOD-TV reported that Pastor Sapp had filed the PPO order in September, and that he had ‘over 400 page(s) of correspondence from her to which I have never responded.’
He added that Patrick’s stalking had gone on for at least a year prior to her moving to Michigan.
The young doctor was reported missing when she did not show up for work on December 6.
