A look at the timeline of the Teleka Patrick case

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - People in West Michigan and far beyond became emotionally involved in the ongoing new developments of the Teleka Patrick case.

For months the case was covered nationally and around the world and up until the end many people were still holding out hope.

"The female has been positively identified as Dr. Teleka Patrick," Sheriff Rick Fuller confirmed Wednesday.

It was what, for four months, many had feared was coming. It was back before Christmas, we first met Dr. Teleka Patrick.  An accomplished student she was new to Kalamazoo as a first year psychiatry resident, working at Borgess.

At the time her family knew something was wrong if they hadn't heard from her.

"Out of character, out of character, because we always talk on Sundays," said her mom Irene Patrick.

The Sheriff's Office investigation turned up surveillance video of her on the night she disappeared at the Radisson Hotel in Kalamazoo.

She was last seen that night leaving the Borgess parking lot ducking behind cars.

Teleka made comments in the past that someone was following her, said Private Investigator Jim Carlin.

As national attention focused on the case, new information surfaced.

You Tube videos showed her talking to a mystery man and then there was a personal protection order, filed against Teleka by her own Grand Rapids Pastor Marvin Sapp.

It accused her of making claims he was her husband.

"I will tell you right now, he is not a suspect in her disappearance," said Sheriff Fuller.

Speculation swirled online in social media but weeks passed with still no signs of Teleka.

"We've exhausted all leads. we've done everything we can. I don't want to speculate," said her brother Matthias Patrick.

Then Sunday a fisherman made the discovery in Lake Charles in Porter Indiana.

And although Teleka Patrick's body was found, it still doesn't answer so many questions for people in West Michigan and around the world following the case.
