Body found identified as Teleka Patrick. 

The Indiana State Police and the Lake County coroner’s office have identified the woman pulled from Lake Charles as Teleka Patrick. On Wednesday, ISP issued a press release confirming the body is that of the 30-year-old-doctor who disappeared back in December.

During a press conference in Kalamazoo, Sheriff Richard Fuller said there were no signs of trauma. A set of keys was found in the clothing on the body, and the only damage to her clothes were easily caused by walking through the foliage between the car and the lake. The car and the place where her body was found “were not very far apart.” Patrick’s wallet with identification and credit cards was found in the car, but the keys were gone.
