Missing Doctor in Detroit Was Stalking Marvin Sapp, Thought He Was Her Husband

The Teleka Patrick story has been a nightmare for anyone with children, especially if they live in a big city.  The beautiful young doctor was doing her medical residency in Detroit and suddenly went missing, baffling both police and her family.

But it turns out that there is more to the story.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Patrick had been stalking Pastor Marvin Sapp.  A news station in Grand Rapids says that Sapp filed for an order of protection against the woman in Kent County last September, right before she went missing.

Sapp says that the 30-year old woman kept referring to him as her husband and moved from California to Michigan to join his church, the Lighthouse Full Light Center Church in Grand Rapids.

According to Patrick’s family, the woman had moved to Western Michigan University to be a part of its residential psychiatry program.  But Sapp says that Patrick called his three children and had even gone to his home.  He says that he never responded to the woman’s correspondence at any point in time.

She allegedly sent “over 400 page(s) of correspondence from her to which I have never responded,” Sapp stated in his legal filing.

“Throughout my career, my family and I have fallen victim to inappropriate attempts to contact me by several unknown individuals,” Sapp said in a statement to the TV station.

“As a father of three and pastor of one of the largest congregations in west Michigan, I cannot take this kind of obsessive attention lightly. Given these previous acts, I have taken several security measures, which have included obtaining a protective order to ensure our safety.”

Patrick has been missing since December 5.  She was last seen in the parking lot of Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan.   Her car was found 100 miles away in a ditch off I-94.  Her family also commented on the order of protection as well, but only to say that police have told them not to say much about it.

“We’ve been asked not to speculate or comment about it. We encourage anyone to contact the Kalamazoo department,” said Kimberly Eddings, Patrick’s cousin. “It was mentioned so that there was no misunderstanding that the family was trying to hide anything. We don’t want Teleka to become one of the forgotten. People go missing every day; there are all sorts of crimes being committed.”

According to Patrick’s former husband, Ismael Calderon, the young woman was becoming delusional during their relationship.  He was married to her for five years, getting divorced in 2011.

“(Patrick) started to have delusions, paranoia; she started to hear voices,” Calderon said. “Maybe the voices that she heard wasn’t God. Maybe the voices she heard pointed to a serious condition.”
