FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — Police are serving a search warrant at a former abortion doctor’s closed Fort Wayne clinic after it was announced that over 2,000 fetal remains were found at his Illinois home.
The Associated Press previously reported that Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s family contacted authorities on Sept. 12 about possible fetal remains being found at his home in northeastern Illinois. The Will County Sheriff’s Office said they found 2,246 preserved fetal remains, but there’s no evidence medical procedures were performed at the home.
Klopfer, who died Sept. 3, was a longtime doctor at a few northern Indiana clinics, including a Fort Wayne clinic at 2210 Inwood Dr.
Officials with the Fort Wayne Police Department (FWPD) tell Fort Wayne’s NBC that Attorney General Curtis Hill issued a search warrant for Klopfer’s Inwood clinic Thursday morning.
AG Hill requested that the Fort Wayne Police Department execute the warrant at the Inwood clinic.
The move comes after State Rep. Ron Bacon and three fellow Republican lawmakers issued a statement Sept. 15 saying the Indiana attorney general’s office should investigate Klopfer’s Indiana abortion clinics, according to AP.
Officials with the Will County Sheriff’s Department held a news conference about the investigation today:
