Lowe has been charged with 16 counts of sexually assaulting girls.
The church is located just a mile from where Skyla Whitaker and Taylor Paschal Placker were found slain in June, but Brown said there's no indication yet that the cases are connected or that the slain girls had been sexually assaulted
"The scene of the homicides is quite close to this church so that gives us cause and makes us want to investigate if there is any type of connection," she said.
Brown said a bodily fluid found at the Weleetka homicide scene should help them determine a possible link.
Lowe was one of many people in the immediate area who the Okfuskee County Sheriff interviewed last summer.

I find it hard to comprehend that this minister had anything to do with shooting our girls. That's not to say he didn't do it, I'm glad they are checking all possibilities. He has been charged with 16 counts of sexual crimes against girls, yet didn't shoot any of them. What could Skyla & Taylor possibly have seen/threatened him with, that these other girls couldn't have? Yet, he didn't shoot them.
I thought of all of us today and Skyla and Taylor.
We can never give up hope that Skyla and Taylor's killer will be caught and brought to justice.
The wheels of justice turns slowly at times but it does turn.
Just like it did for the Levy family, who have waited so long to see justice come for their daughter, Chandra.
But according to an article in the Washington Post this arrest is coming after a 13 part series ran in the newspaper where a reporter laid out the case for the police.
In other words, without this reporter's efforts there probably would still be no movement on the Levy case.
