It’s been over a month since Dr. Teleka Patrick disappeared without a trace and new developments about her personal life are coming to light. Last week, it was revealed that Reverend Marvin Sapp had a protection order against Patrick, because of allegations of stalking. And now, a new report shows that Patrick’s social media timelines were filled with ramblings about demons and unrequited love.
Reporting on MLive.com, Julie Mack unravels Patrick’s Twitter personas, and delves into what seems to be a person battling with issues.
I can’t take much more of this,” Patrick appeared to write in a Dec. 4 Twitter post to an unnamed love interest. “There are normal ways to contact people you know … You reach me through a demonic power. That gives demons power over me and dilutes my spiritual authority.“Because you are using a demon to contact me, when I turn my heart towards you, it passes through a demonic power. When I say I love you, I am also saying I love you to a demon because that is how you made me fall for you,” she posted as @PatientMunchkin.
Jim Carlin, a private investigator hired by Patrick’s family, said he has been told by investigators from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office they believe “some sort of emotional distress” caused Patrick to leave Kalamazoo on the night of Dec. 5. Carlin, who was hired by the family a week ago, said he is aware of Twitter posts linked to Patrick, but has not reviewed all of them.The Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday refused comment on the case but said they would release the findings of their investigation into Patrick’s disappearance later this month.
Although she deleted her Twitter accounts before her disappearance, many of the tweets are still online and obtainable through online search engines.In her Tweets, Patrick never names Sapp or uses his Twitter handle, the standard method of sending someone a tweet. But Patrick’s tweets make clear that she assumes the love interest is reading her posts, and her various descriptions of the love interest matches Sapp: An African-American man who is a widower with young children, has a ministry and an online presence.There is no evidence in the tweets that Sapp ever responded to Patrick.However, Patrick’s tweets indicates that she feels she and the unnamed love interest have a psychic connection and she can tell when he’s thinking about her. For months, her tweets swing between trying to nurture that connection and, at other times, despairing of the other person’s disinterest.“Why do I carry you in my heart every day,” she posted in October from @telekapatrick. “And how do I know for a fact that you carry me in your heart every day?“You long for me so much that it is palpable,” she wrote that day. “Everything within you cries out. And somehow, I can feel it.
