Lindsey Lowe somehow managed to hide her pregnancy (with TWINS nonetheless), gave birth to the boys on the toilet, smothered them to death, and then dumped them in a laundry basket. I've always wondered what compels some women to kill their newborns. It's so morbid, but it seems to happen pretty frequently.
Lowe's trial just began for the gruesome crimes which occurred in Tennessee back in September of 2011. Lowe who is now 26, had secretly given birth in her parents' home and then covered the babies' mouths as she killed them to stifle their screams. She kept her pregnancy a secret until her folks discovered the deceased babies two days after their birth. If convicted, Lowe faces two counts of first-degree murder charges and life in prison without parole. Ugh, how sickening!Continue Reading >
