Weyermuller: Will County officials say remains were found in abortionist’s 70 cardboard boxes




By Mark Weyermuller - 

Many questions had few answers in the case of deceased abortionist Ulrich Klopfer during a press conference Thursday at the Will County Sheriff’s Office in Joliet, Illinois.  Speaking at the podium were: Will County Sheriff: Mike Kelley, Will County States Attorney James Glasgow and Will County Coroner Patrick O’Neil. 

On Thursday, September 12, 2019 the Will County Coroner’s Office received a call from an attorney representing the Klopfer family. The Will County Sheriff was then contacted, along with the Will County States Attorney. Law enforcement personnel responding to the scene were directed to a detached garage, where 2246 fetal remains on aborted children were found. The house was located at 2901 East Pine Street in Crete, Illinois.


New details continue to emerge. The sheriff said remains were found in sealed plastic bags in a chemical called Formalin.  They were labeled, but the officials would not say what labeling included. The sheriff also confirmed all the remains are from 2000-2002, just a three year period. The remains were stored in 70 cardboard boxes among other personal possessions in the Klopfer's attached garage.

Many questions were asked, including motive or reason why these aborted children were here. The officials cited HIPAA Privacy Rules as reason for not releasing for information and that it was on “ongoing investigation.” The officials would not confirm where the remains are being stored.

There is another facility with the coroners office where the actually medical examiner is located but we have not been able to confirm the location.

The officials indicated they were handing off the investigation and the remains to Indiana officials. The attorney general is Curtis Hill in Indiana.

No answer was given to the question as to how the human remains were considered – as deceased babies or medical waste.

The officials did not speculate on whether the babies were kept as trophies as some type of sick or deranged person might do.  Neither did they speculate as to whether Klopfer kept the remains for possible sale of body parts or medical experiments.

They also indicated the abortions were all done in Indiana and no evidence that any were done at his home or in Illinois. They did not indicate if these were legal or illegal abortions. 
The main theme of the press conference was the Will County officials want to hand over the whole investigation to Indiana. 
Earlier in the day, a prayer vigil was held at the Will County coroner's office with about 70 people attending. The Pro-Life Action League said it would like to assist in the respectful and proper burial of these 2246 aborted children.  The vigil was lead by Eric Scheidler from the League. 
 The Will County Officials are asking any woman who may had been victim of Dr. Klopfer to call 812-584-5985.

  1. This Patch article mentions some of my questions I asked officials during the press conference last Thursday. The main stream media, police, and elected officials seem to be downplaying this horrible crime. There are 2246 victims along 2246 moms and 2246 dads. This shows the face of the abortion industry and how it takes human life.
    Again, many questions and few answers..
