Her going missing
In the last few months leading up to her untimely dissappearance, Her ex husband described how she was acting strangely and delusional. Calderon said he and Patrick's marriage started to crumble after he pressured her to seek mental help. But her family said that they have no recollection of her acting strangely or showing signs of being mentally ill or dellusional when they use to see her. People that had brief encounter with patrick said she was acting as if she was being watched online,and it was like she was interacting and having a secret friendship with someone, and when out and about,behaving as if she was being followed and chased by unknown assailants.
At one pointing time in her life it was believed that she developed a crush on a pastor according to the media,and she let her mind wander whilst imagining a future with him,It alleged that she sent almost 20,000 messages to him but the tweets hardly match being directed to her crush.
It was also alleged that She reached out a few times to her crush but was brushed aside so that could be just one of the many reasons that lead to her dissappearance, and her feeling depressed while being rejected,according to another claim.
But the weird thing is that throughout her videos she seemed quite relaxed sane happy and content. It appeared that she was seeing someone,and was romanticising in her videos,wishing the person was there. who were those videos for? The love interests probably told her to keep the relationship a secret. Maybe it was because he was married but who knows. We are still not sure who this love interests was.
The weeks leading up to her erratic behaviour:
In her last few weeks She was becoming fearful, moody and pensive and at times would have sporadic unexplained irrational outbursts. Her sudden on and off erratic behaviour had one of her aquaintance worried, and the person encouraged her to seek proffessional help, as it appeared that the young doctor was showing early signs of depression,according to the scenarios surrounding her final weeks,and reports.
At times the young lady complained of having severe headaches and fights online with strangers,but it appeared that she was not sure of whom the fights were with nor the reasoning behind the bullying. These are clear signs that she might have come into contact with several online stalkers,whilst she was active on social media. Her families believed that she was being held against her will or worst.
Her final days
But There are too many unanswered questions. She may also have been invited to turn up at the hotel to meet the person that she's talking to in her videos. But who?
The booking in the hotel was unsuccessful and It appeared that she was in fear of her life and was running from someone, but was not sure who the person was,or why she was being chased and he probably caught her.

Her keys,beeper and one hundred dollars were also found hidden in one of her pockets on her body.
Her Family speaks
Some people suspect that her being mentally ill was a rumour that was deliberately started by someone to distract the public from taking her dissappearance seriously. Some Americans think that The slander is disrespectful because she was not diagnosed with having a mental illness,and it appears that someone was trying to make it seem as if the young lady would harm herself to stop her death from being properly investigated.
