“The attorney for Klopfer’s family called authorities on Thursday, when family members found the 2,246 fetal remains as they went through Klopfer’s home in unincorporated Will County, according to the Sherrif’s Office. Klopfer died Sept. 3.
“Sheriff’s deputies, crime scene investigators and the county coroner went to the home, found the remains and took possession.
“Will County authorities said there was no evidence that medical procedures were conducted on the property, and the family is cooperating in the investigation. Will County is about 45 miles southwest of Chicago.
“Klopfer was a longtime doctor at the Women’s Pavilion clinic in South Bend, where he provided abortions for decades. He also performed abortions at clinics in Gary and Fort Wayne. He was believed to be Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor, with thousands of procedures in multiple counties over several decades.”
