Indiana authorities say fetal remains were found on the property of an abortion doctor who died earlier this month.
The Will County Sheriff's Office says in Illinois says the family of doctor Ulrich Klopfer reported finding the remains while they were sorting through his personal belongings.
Klopfer died Sept. 3.
The family's attorney requested that the coroner's office provide proper removal of over 2,000 medically preserved fetal remains.
And there is no evidence that medical procedures were performed on Klopfer's property.

Klopfer performed abortions until 2016 when his license was suspended for failure to exercise reasonable patient care.
He was also found to have violated multiple notice and documentation requirements, particularly involving reporting abortions on girls under 14.
Klopfer had taken three to four months to log the abortions, but state law requires reporting within a three-day period.
It was estimated that he had performed tens of thousands of abortion procedures in multiple Indiana counties for decades, making him ‘likely’ to be the state’s ‘most prolific abortion doctor in history,’ according to the South Bend Tribune.
Following his 2016 hearing, Klopfer, who was 71 at the time, was given a minimum six-month suspension following 12 hours of testimony and thousands of exhibits.
The testimony indicated that the doctor had been using the same sort of abortion and sedation procedures that he had used since the 1970s and 1980s.
Klopfer said at the time that he had never had a patient die or go into cardiac arrest in the 43 years that he had been performing abortions.
He also spoke about performing an abortion on a 10-year-old girl at an Illinois hospital after she had been raped by her uncle.
But he did not tell police about the child abuse and allowed her to return home with her parents, who knew about the rape and had refused to prosecute the uncle.
