Second autopsy performed on Teleka Patrick

MARION COUNTY, Indiana (WZZM) -- The private investigator hired by the family of Teleka Patrick says he was present Friday as a second autopsy was conducted on the body of the deceased doctor.

The two-hour procedure was performed in Marion County, Indiana by a forensic pathologist. Private investigator Jim Carlin of Battle Creek says the second autopsy did a much better job of confirming the findings of the first autopsy.

Both autopsies concluded Patrick's death was the result of drowning. The first autopsy on Teleka Patrick was conducted in Porter County, Indiana.

Police believe Partick could have fallen into Lake Charles, near Porter Indiana. Teleka left Kalamazoo on December 5 on her own. Those who saw her, say she was upset. Her car was found abandoned that night just off of I-94, with a flat tire.

Police searched nearby Lake Charles, but found nothing. Then on April 5, a fisherman found the body of a black female. Police say there were no signs of trauma or foul play.

Carlin says arrangements are being made to fly the body of Teleka Patrick to Orlando, Florida where her parents live. A burial will be held on April 25.
