Will County sheriff: 'I've never seen anything like this, ever'
Law enforcement still has no idea why a notorious abortion doctor was hoarding the remains of thousands of fetuses in the garage of his Crete Township home, Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley said during a Thursday afternoon press conference.
"I've never seen anything like this, ever," Kelley said. "It's one of those once-in-a-lifetime things."
Just hours before the press conference, investigators with the Indiana Attorney General’s Office and local police began searching a Fort Wayne, Indiana, building where Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer operated an abortion clinic until 2013.
After spending more than seven hours rifling through the clutter reportedly inside Dr. Ulrich Klopfer's former Fort Wayne clinic, investigators began loading boxes of Klopfer’s belongings into a large U-Haul truck Thursday.
Officers began searching the building at 2210 Inwood Drive just before 9 a.m. Investigators from the Indiana Attorney General’s Office and local police arrived at the scene about 8 a.m. before obtaining a search warrant to go inside the clinic, where Klopfer performed abortions until 2013.
