Federal officials have successfully identified the man who is allegedly the Nashville bomber. An RV had exploded at downtown Nashville in the early hours of dawn, on Christmas. The feds are now looking into the reason behind the explosion.
FBI agents have been working with many tips and leads and believe that it could take time to establish motive. On Sunday, officials named 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner as the man behind the huge explosion that destroyed several buildings including an AT & T building and injured three people.
Investigators and analysts have been examining forensic evidence from the blast site as well as following up leads on Warner, including his finances and browsing history.
Though there are no official confirmations except his name, unverified reports say that Warner’s property, including his house and backyard have been examined as Google Maps captured an image of a RV, similar to the one that exploded, parked in his backyard in 2019. An Associated Press reporter said that the vehicle was not present in the backyard on Saturday.
Public records show that Warner had a job as a computer consultant with a Nashville realty company. He was familiar with the use of alarms and electronics. On Saturday he was thought to be a person of interest and on Sunday he was formally named as a person who was under investigation by the authorities.
DNA has been matched to him. Wreckage from the blast is also linked to him through a VIN number that has been recovered. Initial reports indicate that he acted alone but the motive is undetermined to date.
