    I voted other. I agree with all those who think she was suffering a mental break and either died from the elements or committed suicide.

    I agree, this is most likely.

    I keep thinking there is way more to this than we know.
    It's much more difficult to search for, and find, a body than people imagine. Caylee Anthony was found about a half mile from her home. There were multiple searches of the wooded over about 6 months, but the body was actually found by accident.

    I totally disagree. The "flowers from last time" was actually one of the first red flags for me, because they were obviously fresh, not from "last time."

    But the biggest factor is that you can't go by the word of a delusional person. In various tweets, she talks about communicating telepathically and hoping to meet in person or talk on the phone. That's enough for me to discount what she says at other times - it doesn't make it impossible for her to know the person, but her saying it doesn't make it any more likely.

    Where are these tweets? Are they still accessible?

    Presuming that Teleka was driving the car, the evidence suggest that she got into someone's car because the dogs traced a scent from the car to the road.

    I think the two most likely scenarios are now:
    1. She is the victim of a crime.
    2. She is hiding somewhere, not necessarily near the place where her car was found.

    She was driving towards Chicago it seems. Perhaps she is roaming the streets in Chicago. A big city is a good place to hide and be anonymous.

    I am not sure if there has been enough media coverage. It is possible that someone did give her a ride, but that that person has not seen any news coverage.

    This is where I am too. I voted "other" and I think, sadly, she left her car and either deliberately hurt herself and succumbed to the elements whilst in the throes of psychosis, or died of exposure or stumbled into water.

    However, I'm happy to cling to the hope that she might be getting treatment somewhere, having left her ID etc at the hospital as she knew she wasn't in a fit state to continue working there.

    I definitely think she was "in the throes of psychosis" and either harmed herself or came to some harm due to her own actions.

    I am just coming to the case, but after reading the social media thread and the media, I think she was having a psychotic break and this is what happened.

    Its all so tragic. Teleka seems like a brilliant woman who had so much going for her yet suffered from a serious mental illness that led her to her death. I hope I am wrong.

    I'm going with "Other"

    I'm going to have to go with "Other"

    I don't believed that she "snapped" as it is clear that she was a deeply troubled person who apparently wasn't getting the psychiatric counseling that she desperately needed. Her illness seems to have just kept growing worse.

    Given where her car was found and knowing the area pretty well, my guesses would be:

    1. She wandred away from her vehicle, she become lost or disoriented and then expired due to hypothermia or exposure. Her remains have yet to be discovered
    2. She intentionally abandoned her vehicle at night and then was the victim of an unreported hit and run accident in what is a heavily traveled area. Her remains where then hidden in a manner where they won't be easily found.
    3. She unintentionally abandoned her vehicle and was then the victim of a hit and run accident by an unknowing party (particularly a semi driver) who assumed that he/she had struck a deer and not a human being. The driver simply continued on as if nothing had occurred,the doctor was thrown from the roadway into a ditch or a nearby wooded area and her remains have yet to be discovered
    4. She intentionally abandoned her vehicle, walked the relatively short distance to Indiana Harbor or Lake Michigan and then committed an act of self harm


    WIth respect to those who presume that she met a friend or got a ride, I don't think that either of those scenarios are probable. Why?

    1. There's no record of the doctor having any friends in the area or nearby
    2. There's no record of the doctor having any friends who are unknown to her family or her social circle
    3. None of the nearby businesses reported the doctor presence or the presence of anyone traveling with someone who resembled the doctor
    4. By now, the doctor being missing is a well-known event. Unless the person (the doctor's friend) was exceptionally insensitive, they would have come forward or strongly advised the doctor to come forward to alleviate the her family's concerns.
    5. Stopping on I-94 is a dangerous undertaking - Considering that the chances of being in an accident either leaving the roadway to attempting to return to it, it is unlikely that a friend would pick someone up ON the interstate without suggesting that the doctor's vehicle also be towed, an event which does not seem to have occurred.


    Unfortunately death by an intentional act or misadventure seem to be the likely outcomes for this case.

    what i think happened

    Having personally met Teleka a few years back. She attended my bookclub meetings. She had strange behavior then. She also expressed that the name she had given me was indeed a false name because "someone stole her identity and was stalking her". After a few months she sent me some emails that were inappropriate and never came back. A year later she did email me and apologize for her behavior So, knowing these things personally about Teleka (AKA Sandra). I believe that she was indeed suffering from mental illness then as well as on December 5th which led to her running away to hide Being that she is delusional she probably was not able to make good sound choices and succumbed to the elements. I am praying that this is not the case and she is alive, but it doesn't look good to me.

    What name did she give you? Sandra? Did she give a last name? Cassie?

    Arrow Loudmouth's Theories

    Hello All
    Long time reader, first time poster. I am fascinated with this mystery.

    1. TELEKA WILL BE FOUND IN THE SPRING. I spent some time reading her tweets and am convinced that she was having a breakdown. At about 1am on the day she went missing the tweets became more agitated and before she went to work that day she deleted two accounts. Both her coworker and the hotel employee said that she was behaving strangely and the 911 caller from the highway reported erratic driving in reference to the gold Lexus that she was in. Teleka got out of the car and wandered off. She was in such a deluded state that she could have thought she was anywhere- even at home in bed. The dogs didn't find her because they simply missed a spot. It happens. Remember how LE searched the same area that Chandra Levy's body was ultimately found? When the snow melts, they will find her.

    2.TELEKA WON'T BE FOUND. In her deluded state, she got out of the car and waved down an unknown driver. That person took advantage of her vulnerable state. Because it is an interstate highway on the border of two states, the culprit could have been going anywhere. They had ample time to dispose of the evidence.

    I still check the news from time to time though. It would be great to see that she was located at a hospital and is in good health.

    I agree with a previous comment. Teleka will be found in the Spring. But sadly she was not a victim of a boogeyman who just lucked out and had her run across their path. Everything set in motion were events caused by Teleka's own actions. I believe she exited her car in a distraught and paranoid state of mind. Likely, she would not be looking for help from passing traffic and instead ran away from the freeway heading Northbound. If you look at the map of where her car was located there is a lake within a short walking distance. I realize the police conducted a sonar test under the ice but I don't believe their methods to be sound and concrete. I believe she is in that lake or another nearby water where she is concealed. This is a heartbreaking story that will probably not end well. If only she could've rec'd the help that she gave to others in her profession she might still be here today.
