Hendersonville, Tenn. (The Weekly Vice) - Lindsey Lowe, a 25-year-old Tennessee woman has been jailed after she allegedly gave birth to twin boys, but quickly smothered them to death so her parents wouldn't hear their cries.
According Hendersonville police, officers were called to the family's home after Lowe's father discovered a dead newborn baby in laundry basket.
Arriving detectives quickly learned that the child belonged to Lowe, who had recently delivered twins inside the home.
Lowe reportedly told investigators that she went into labor while on the toilet at her family's home Monday evening. When the first baby fell into the toilet and began to cry, Lowe allegedly smothered the baby with her hand for several minutes until she saw that the infant was dead.
A few moments later she gave birth to a second child who also dropped into the toilet. Once again she allegedly placed her hand over the infants nose and mouth and held it there until she saw that the infant was dead.
She then allegedly placed both deceased babies into a laundry basket and then covered them up with blankets.
Investigators say both baby boys appeared to have been born after a full-term pregnancy. One infant weighed in at 5 pounds while the other weighed 6 pounds.
Officers noted in the affidavit that Tennessee is a Safe Haven state that allows women with unwanted pregnancies to drop a newborn baby off at a hospital or police station - no questions asked.
Lowe was booked into jail on a charge of first-degree murder and has been ordered to submit to a mental evaluation. Bail has not yet been set in the case.
