Missing Dr Teleka Patrick Stalked Gospel Singer, Marvin Sapp; Ex-Husband Claims She Has Mental Illness
- Grand Rapids gospel singer Marvin Sapp claimed that missing Kalamazoo doctor Teleka Patrick had an obsession with him, prompting him to file a personal protection order against her, court records show.
- Teleka’s, ex-husband, Ismael Calderon, has stepped forward and stated that she suffers from what he suspects was a serious mental illness.
Teleka Patrick, 30, a first-year medical resident in Kalamazoo, Michigan, has not been seen since the 5th December 2013, after she was dropped off at Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her car was later found abandoned along an Indiana highway. There was no sign of Patrick. The FBI has joined in the search.
According to Wood TV, her ex-husband Ismael Calderon, is very worried.
Mr Calderon, was married to Dr Patrick from 2006 to 2011, said she also suffered from what he suspects was a serious mental illness. He said he suspects she’s experiencing a delusion and fearing someone was chasing her. He said he fears that someone may have taken advantage of Patrick during a delusional episode. He does not believe she’s missing on her own volition and said he is certain she would not have harmed herself intentionally. Calderon said he and Patrick’s marriage started to crumble after he pressured her to seek mental help. When she refused, he left her out of concern for his safety and that of his children from a previous relationship.
“I believe it’s a serious concern because every day that she’s still missing, it’s a danger,. This is a tragedy. I don’t think she’s hiding somewhere. I think she’s being held against her will or the worst. I think that Teleka had this fear of first, being branded with a mental illness. Second, the practical fear of losing her career. Teleka, right now, she would have responded. This is a serious situation. She’s not just on vacation right now. That’s why I think this is really important that we bring awareness that this is not just some doctor that’s just trying to get away. This is someone that was suffering. This is a red alert.”
He also added that: “She went to Michigan on purpose and I don’t believe it had anything to do with, ‘Oh, Michigan has a really great psychiatric residency program. What I heard is that there was somebody that she maybe felt that God wanted her to be with.”
Marvin Sapp who alleges that Dr Patrick was stalking him and his family, said in court documents PPO (Personal Proction Order), that Dr Patrick began contacting him before she moved to West Michigan from California.
“I’m a national recording artist on RCA label who she has claimed as her husband. She has moved from CA to MI, join my church. Contacts my children and has been to my home. I have a least 100 page of correspondence fro her which I have NEVER RESPONDED to. It has gone on at least a year and until she moved I’m in the area I didn’t see it as problem. I travel the world and I need to insure that when I’m home or away my teenage children are covered.”
Regardless of her mental status. No one seems to know where Dr Patrick is and she still needs to be found.
