(TMU) — The death of an Illinois abortion doctor has led to a macabre discovery by police: the medically preserved remains of over 2,200 fetuses at his home.
Ulrich Goerge Klopfer died on September 3 at the age of 74, according to WNDU.
On September 12 an attorney representing Klopfer’s family alerted the Will County Coroner’s Office that the family had made the grim find while sorting through the deceased doctor’s personal property.
In a press release, the local sheriff’s office said:
“Will County Sheriff’s Detectives, Crime Scene Investigators and representatives from the Will County Coroner’s Office arrived at an address in unincorporated Will County. Personnel were directed to an area of the property where 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains were located. The Will County Coroner’s Office took possession of the remains.”
