SOUTH BEND, Ind.–The remains of 2,246 fetuses found at Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s house in Will County, Illinois, have been brought back to Indiana. Atty. Gen. Curtis Hill said those remains were brought to the state Wednesday. Hill said they are now being stored.

A hotline has been setup at 317-234-6663, for anyone who believes they might have been affected by Klopfer’s actions, keeping the fetuses after they were aborted.

“We brought these back to Indiana because they are Indiana babies that have been aborted and we believe it’s important they be returned here,” said Hill. He said that just because the remains are being stored iin St. Joseph County, does not mean that’s where the abortions happened.

Klopfer’s practices were in Gary, South Bend and Ft. Wayne.

“I think this is one of the most heinous, disgusting events I have ever seen,” said Rep. Jackie Walorski, at Thursday morning’s news conference. She said she and 66 other people signed a letter to the Dept. of Justice, requesting federal help in the investigation to find out why and how it happened and what the implications are about the crossing of state lines with the fetuses.

Hill said he wants to find out if any other medical professionals were involved.
