Officials reported Wednesday that more bodies of aborted babies were found on one of the properties of Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer.
Last September, 2,246 medically preserved remains of aborted babies were found at the deceased abortionist’s Illinois residence. Klopfer’s family reported finding the remains shortly after his death on Sept. 3.
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said it was also members of the family of the deceased abortionist who found the additional bodies in Illinois while searching his cars and other property. They then reported it to authorities, according to WSBT.

Indiana and Illinois authorities have been working together to investigate the macabre find.
Prosecutor Hill has yet to provide data on how many more bodies were discovered or where they were found, but a statement from Will County officials said the additional remains were found in a Klopfer vehicle on commercial property in Dolton, Illinois.
“Today we were notified by authorities in Illinois that family members this morning found additional fetal remains as they continued to sort through the late doctor’s belongings,” Hill said Wednesday, according to WGN 9 News.
“The Will County Sheriff’s Office learned that numerous vehicles and possibly other properties of Dr. Klopfer were stored in an enclosed outdoor lot at a business located in Dolton, Illinois,” the statement said.
At least five plastic bags and a box containing numerous medically preserved fetal remains were found in eight vehicles, according to the Sheriff’s office. The remains were stored in the trunk of an old Mercedes Benz.
Will County officials said the fetal material was from abortions performed in 2000, 2001 and 2002 in Indiana. Those remains were transferred to the St. Joseph County Coroner’s Office.
The Will County Sheriff stated that the remains found in the Mercedes Benz “were preserved, packaged and marked similarly to the previous fetal remains discovered at the Klopfer residence.
Last week, Hill said they still have a lot of questions and decisions to make in this unusual case, but he promised that babies will be “given the decency of a burial that they deserve,” News Sentinel reported.
“Imagine if you will if we discovered 2,246 remains of adults who were deceased in some sort of preservation fluid,” Hill said, according to Fox 59. “We would be freaking out.”
The abortionist worked at the Women’s Pavilion in South Bend, Saint Joseph County, Indiana.
The state of Indiana suspended Klopfer’s medical license in 2015 for irregularities in the exercise of his profession, including failure to report an abortion performed on a 13-year-old girl, WSBT reported.
