More fetal remains have been found in Illinois in a vehicle formerly owned by late Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, the physician who performed abortions at clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend, according to a release from Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill.
Hill released a statement Wednesday saying the latest remains were found as family members continued to sort through the late doctor’s belongings in Will County, Ill.
In a revised statement released later Wednesday afternoon, members of the Will County Sheriff’s Office reportedly found the remains while searching several vehicles owned by Klopfer that were parked at a business property in Dolton.
Investigators found a total of eight cars belonging to Klopfer, and five plastic bags and one box containing fetal remains were found in the trunk of one of the cars.
Illinois authorities on Sept. 12 learned that family members going through Klopfer’s belongings found 2,246 preserved fetal remains at his residence.
Hill oversaw the transportation of the fetal remains back to Indiana, and he said these new findings will be added to the existing protocols for the other group of remains.
