The University of Utah football team flew to Texas early Monday. A photo of the flight with the caption, "Headed to Dallas for you, A Lowe," was shared on the team's Twitter account.

Lowe's funeral was held at the Family Cathedral of Praise in Mesquite, a suburb of Dallas. Lowe graduated from West Mesquite High School before attending the University of Utah.

After an investigation, Buk M. Buk was arrested on Oct. 3 for the murder of Lowe, along with attempted murder of a woman who he allegedly also shot, but he has yet to be formally charged for the crimes.
