(AP) - Results of a second autopsy conducted at a family’s request match an
earlier initial cause of death for a Michigan doctor whose body was found in
an Indiana lake.
investigator Jim Carlin tells the Kalamazoo Gazette the second autopsy was
conducted Friday by the coroner’s office in Marion County, Ind., on the body
of 30-year-old Teleka Patrick.
Carlin says results
confirm the findings of the coroner in Porter County, Ind.
Sheriff Richard Fuller said on Wednesday that there were no signs of trauma
or foul play. He said an initial cause of death appeared to be drowning.
Toxicology results were pending.

pulled April 6 from Lake Charles. The doctor’s car was abandoned nearby on
Dec. 5 along Interstate 94.
