The FBI is reporting that the bombing suspect died in the explosion that happened in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, on Christmas day.
The loner who had lived in Antioch, Tennessee, was reportedly the owner of an RV seen at the scene of the bombing and pictured on Google Earth outside the home of the bomber. The Sun is reporting that the bomber was reported to police in 2019 for making bombs in his backyard.
Authorities have confirmed that 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner acted alone when he blew up a large area next to the AT&T building in Nashville.
They have not discovered a motive yet.
FBI teams swarmed Warner’s home in Antioch, Tennessee yesterday:
There are some twists and turns in the case of the Nashville bombing person of interest. Anthony Quinn Warner reportedly sold his home one month ago but kept an RV on the property.
Records on the Antioch County website show the house was sold a month ago:
According to The Tennessean, bags of evidence were being taken from the duplex where Warner lived.
Local and federal agents have been in-and-out of a duplex for “court-authorized activity” following information from the investigation, according to Darrell DeBusk, an FBI public affairs officer.
DeBusk said no arrest has been made.
A team wearing tactical gear marked with both ATF and FBI insignias entered the residence and cleared the home around 2:30 p.m. The bomb squad confirmed no one was inside, according to FBI personnel at the scene. An evidence team entered the residence around that time to conduct a search.
FBI Public Affairs Officer spoke about the search of the Warner house:
FBI public affairs officer Darrell DeBusk said information developed during the course of the investigation led law enforcement to this home on Bakertown Road in Antioch. #nashvillebombing pic.twitter.com/se8FvCpMni
