More information is expected from authorities on Thursday in a Will County case where 2,200 fetal remains were found at the home of a deceased abortion doctor.
The Will County Sheriff's Office says a press conference is being held in Joliet with the Will County Sheriff, Coroner and State's Attorney regarding fetal remains that were discovered on September 12th at the property of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer which has now been identified as Crete Township, not far from the Indiana line.
Since the story broke this past weekend, the conversation has gone national and has brought in the involvement of lawmakers in Illinois and Indiana.
Illinois AG Kwame Raoul and Indiana AG Curtis Hill have both agreed to investigate the remains as Klopfer, who lived in Illinois, had three Indiana clinics which were all shut down in 2016, following license suspension by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board.
There is no evidence that any medical procedures were conducted at the Illinois property. An attorney for the family informed the Coroner's Office that while going through the doctor's personal property they discovered the remains.
Klopfer died on September 3rd at the age of 75.
