What is the world coming too. She, like Casey Anthony, just didn’t want to be a mom!:
HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – A 25-year-old Hendersonville woman is behind bars in Sumner County on murder charges after she admitted to killing her infant twins, minutes after they were born.
According to a Hendersonville Police Department affidavit, Lindsey Lowe gave birth to her first son sometime between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday night on a toilet in a bathroom of her parents’ Park Circle home.
Lowe told detectives the baby was crying and she did not want her parents, who were unaware she was pregnant, to hear.
Lowe reported she placed her bare hand over the child’s mouth and held it there until the baby fell silent and died.
A few minutes later, Lowe told authorities she gave birth to a second child in a similar manner.
Again, Lowe said the baby was crying so she put her hand over the baby’s mouth and kept it there for several minutes until the child died.
According to the affidavit, Lowe then placed the babies’ bodies in a laundry basket in her bedroom and covered them with a blanket to prevent them from being discovered.
Two days later, around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Lowe’s father called police to report he’d discovered a newborn baby dead in a basket in his daughter’s room.
Officers located Lowe at a local dentist office, her place of employment, and took her into custody. She admitted to killing the babies during questioning.
Lowe told authorities she believes she became pregnant during the early part of January. Both babies were born full term, each weighing between five and six pounds.
Lowe told police she did not tell anyone she was pregnant, including her parents.
In addition, she reported she did not see a doctor once during the term of her pregnancy, according to the affidavit.
Neighbors told Nashville’s News 2 Lowe never mentioned that she was pregnant but at least one thought she might be.
