The body discovered in an Indiana lake over the weekend is that of missing Michigan doctor Teleka Patrick, says a private investigator hired by her family to help find the aspiring psychiatrist.

The Kalamazoo Sheriff's Office found the body early Sunday in Lake Charles in Porter, Ind., reported, but the identity of the remains has not yet been confirmed.

Patrick, a 30-year-old medical resident at the Western Michigan University School of Medicine, went missing Dec. 5 and was last spotted leaving the Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Mich., around 8 p.m., according to Her car was later discovered in a ditch in Indiana, about 100 miles away.

Jim Carlin, a private investigator hired by Patrick's family to help find her, believes the body is that of Teleka Patrick.

"That's my position," he told "Obviously the family wants to have it confirmed with the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office."

The case of Patrick's disappearance has sparked much interest online, with conspiracy theories and ideas filling up web forums and memoriam websites. One perpetual rumor is that well-known pastor and gospel singer Marvin Sapp had something to do with Patrick's presumed death.

During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Patrick was somewhat obsessed with Sapp. She reportedly sent him more than 400 pages of correspondence, attempted to visit his home, and contacted his teenage children pretending to be his wife. Police also drudged up old tweets on Patrick's Twitter account where she wrote that God told her she was destined to marry Sapp, The Detroit News reported.

Court documents show that Sapp sought a personal protection order from Patrick about three months before her December disappearance, according to The Associated Press. He has since been cleared of any wrongdoing.

"He is nothing more than an innocent victim of stalking," Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller told of Sapp in January.
