HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – Dozens attended a prayer vigil Thursday evening for the Hendersonville woman who admitted to killing her newborn twin sons last week because she was fearful her parents would discover them.

Lindsey Lowe's church, City Road Chapel United Methodist Church, held the vigil from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the parking lot behind the church located on South Gallatin Road in Madison.

In honor of the two lives lost last week, two roses were placed at a cross in honor of the babies.

Despite being invited to the vigil, the Lowe family did not attend.

Preacher Dr. Ron Lowery told Nashville's News 2 he, along with the church will continue to offer support to the family during this difficult time.

"I'd like the family to know that the support of this church has been with them from the very beginning and is with them today and will be with them as they go theough all of this. We are a church family and we go through the good times and we go through the hard times," he said.  

Lowe, 25, was arrested last Wednesday, September 14, after a dead newborn was discovered in a laundry basket in her bedroom.  A second infant boy was discovered deceased nearby.

Once in custody, Lowe admitted to detectives that she suffocated the babies after giving birth to them a bathroom in her parents' home two days earlier.

Earlier this week, a judge set bond for Lowe at $250,000.  She was released from jail Tuesday evening.

Lowe's attorney John Pellegrin said the family is seeking mental health treatment for Lowe and getting her stabilized are their top priorities.
