NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The case of Lindsey Lowe, the mother who admitted to smothering her newborn twin sons just minutes after they were born, is garnering national attention.
In a rare live show Wednesday night, HLN host Nancy Grace weighed in on the Lowe case.
"She [Lowe] is responsible for double murder!" Grace proclaimed on her show. For Grace, a mother of twins, the case hits very close to home.
The outspoken Grace chatted with legal experts, Gloria Allred and Sumner County Assistant District Attorney Ron Blanton. Nashville's News 2 reporter Tracee Tolentino also participated in the panel.
"Here's the kicker… She walked free! That's double murder and mommy walks free!" Grace exclaimed.
The 25-year-old Lowe was released from jail Tuesday night a day after a judge set bond at $250,000.
In court on Monday, Lowe's father described his daughter as a "model daughter" who had lived at home and taken care of her ailing mother since graduating from Western Kentucky University in 2008.
On Wednesday night's show, Grace said it was Lindsey's grandparents who helped her make bail by putting up the deed to their house.
Grace also said it was Lindsey's mother, not her father, who found the body of the first dead baby on the morning of September 14. Her father was the one who called Hendersonville police.
Lowe's attorney said the family is seeking mental health treatment for his client.
John Pellegrin said the family told him Lowe was not eating much while behind bars and jail officials, afraid she would hurt herself, kept her medicated and in isolation while incarcerated.
Pellegrin said finding treatment for Lowe and getting her stabilized are their top priorities.
The Lowe family's church, City Road Chapel United Methodist Church in Madison, is planning a prayer vigil Thursday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. for the Lowe family, according to the church's Facebook page.
There was no immediate word if Lowe or her family planned to attend.
