Fetal remains at late Indiana abortion doctor's properties can't be ID'd: Attorney General

INDIANAPOLIS -- A preliminary report from Indiana's attorney general says shoddy record-keeping and the degraded condition of more than 2,400 sets of fetal remains found at properties owned by a late Indiana abortion doctor mean those remains cannot be identified.

Tuesday's report by Attorney General Curtis Hill comes more than three months after relatives of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer found 2,246 sets of fetal remains in Klopfer's garage in Will County, Illinois, following his Sept. 3 death at age 79. Authorities later found another 165 sets of fetal remains in inside a car Klopfer had owned.

Authorities say additional fetal remains have been found at a Chicago-area storage unit that was being rented by a late doctor who performed abortions in Indiana.



The remains were found in Will County and south suburban Dolton. Klopfer worked at abortion clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend, Indiana.
