Police To Close Books On Teleka Patrick Case

Police plan to plan to close the investigation into the death of a Michigan doctor whose body was found in an Indiana lake after getting results of toxicology tests.

Indiana State Police Detective Sgt. Rick Strong tells the Kalamazoo Gazette that toxicology tests for 30-year-old Teleka Patrick turned up ``nothing out of the ordinary.'' Investigators in Indiana had been waiting for the test results since April. Strong says he plans to close his investigation once he receives a copy of the final toxicology report.

Patrick's death was ruled an accidental drowning. Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller said earlier that there were no signs of trauma or foul play. Patrick's body was pulled April 6 from Lake Charles. The doctor's car was abandoned nearby on Dec. 5 along Interstate 94.
