Indiana's attorney general said Friday that 165 sets of fetal remains have been found in the Chicago area inside a vehicle owned by a late in abortion doctor, boosting the total number of abandoned sets of fetal remains discovered at properties linked to him to more than 2,400.

Those remains, which have been returned to IN, were determined to be from abortions Klopfer performed from 2000 to 2002 at his clinics IN Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend.

A month after 2,246 fetal remains were found in the IL garage of a doctor who performed abortions, more remains linked to him have been found. His family found medically preserved remains while going through his belongings at his home in Will County, about 45 miles from Chicago, authorities said last month. The Fort Wayne clinic closed in 2014, and the Gary and South Bend clinics closed the next year.

More fetal remains linked to dead abortion Dr. Ulrich Klopfer have been discovered, police said. On Wednesday, authorities found another 165 sets of fetal remains in the trunk of a Mercedes-Benz parked at a business property in Dolton, Illinois, where Klopfer had kept eight cars.

The Office of the Indiana Attorney General has set up a phone number and email address for the specific use of anyone with possible connections to the fetal remains who may wish to inquire. In addition to finding the remains, investigators found thousands of patient medical records abandoned at Klopfer's former clinics and other associated IN properties that were raided.

An attorney representing the doctor's family called the Will County coroner's office on September 12 to inform them the family had discovered what appeared to be the remains of fetuses and asked for assistance in removing them, the Will County Sheriff's Office said. Bolger and Hill have said that Klopfer's family is cooperating fully with the investigation. "We remain committed to ensuring that all these unborn children receive a respectful final disposition here in IN".

The agency had faced criticism over its approval of Boeing's 737 Max, which has been grounded since March following the crashes.

Hill has called Klopfer one "of the more notorious abortionists in the history of in".

That remains unclear. As far as storing fetal remains, the law is murky.

Klopfer did not follow IN law for disposal of the fetal remains and the filing of the proper paperwork, Glasgow said.

The Will County Coroner's Office took possession of the remains.

Hill said they will be "given the decency of a burial that they deserve".
