Authorities have found 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains from a doctor who died last week in Will County, Ill.
Dr. Ulrich Klopfer had previously performed abortions in Indiana.
The attorney on Thursday told the Will County Coroner’s Office that people going through the personal property of Klopfer found the fetal remains.
Indiana records show Klopfer was investigated in 2015 and 2016 while working as an osteopathic physician at the Women’s Pavilion in South Bend, Ind.
Five complaints were filed with the Indiana medical licensing board from 2014 to 2017. State records show his license was suspended and expired in 2017. The doctor’s family is cooperating with the investigation.
