The horrific saga surrounding Indiana abortionist Dr. George Ulrich Klopfer took a disturbing turn this week. After police found 2,246 medically preserved fetuses on Ulrich’s Illinois property days after his death early last month, Indiana authorities announced Wednesday that more fetal remains were discovered, in the trunk of a car parked on a lot owned by “Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor.”
Someone related to Klopfer found the additional remains in the trunk of a 1990s Mercedes Benz, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill told the Washington Examiner. Police seized five bags and a cardboard box, all containing remains of aborted babies, from the car, which was one of eight vehicles parked on a lot that Klopfer owned in Dolton, Illinois.
Hill announced Wednesday that authorities believe the abortions were performed in Indiana. As Faithwire reported, the initial remains were discovered in the garage of Klopfer’s Crete, Illinois, home, nine days after he died on Sept. 3. Even though all of the remains have been found in Illinois, Indiana officials are handling the investigation because the abortions took place in Indiana more than 20 years ago.
Now, Indiana investigators will have to determine whether the additional remains are also from abortions performed in their state. If so, this will raise the already staggering body count.
“… we anticipate simply adding these remains into the protocol we have already set up for dealing with these disturbing circumstances,” Hill said in a statement.
Much like notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, Klopfer was a hoarder, the Washington Examiner reported. It wasn’t until after he died that his widow, Sherry Klopfer, discovered the fetal remains in a box while sifting through the cluttered garage with her sister and brother-in-law.
Sherry’s lawyer, Kevin Bolger, said his client wasn’t being questioned in the investigation because she was clearly shocked and disturbed by the findings.
“She was totally devastated, totally shocked, and let them search every piece of their property,” Bolger said.
In a Sept. 13 press release, Will County Sheriff’s Office said Klopfer’s family “is cooperating fully with this investigation.”
So far, Indiana officials haven’t found any remains in Indiana, where Klopfer ran clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary, and South Bend, before losing his medical license in 2016.
