Authorities say the man suspected of setting off a bomb in a recreational vehicle that rocked downtown Nashville on Christmas day died in the explosion. U.S. Attorney Don Cochran identified the suspect on Sunday as Anthony Quinn Warner. Investigators said they used DNA to determine the remains were Warner’s. The FBI said it also matched the RV’s vehicle identification number to a registration belonging to Warner. Federal agents and police had searched a home in suburban Nashville associated with Warner. Authorities did not immediately provide details about a potential motive. FBI special agent Douglas Korneski said there was no indication anyone else was involved in the explosion, except for Warner. (…) A 63-year-old Tennessee man, Anthony Q. Warner, was under investigation in connection with the blast, Nashville Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron said. He did not provide more details. Warner had experience with electronics and alarms, according to public records, and had worked as a computer consultant for a Nashville realtor.

On Saturday Anthony Quinn Warner was named by local media as the person of interest in the Nashville bombing. Neighbor alleges that Warner kept ‘No Trespassing’ signs around his home, especially around the RV, and was seen tinkering with antenna above the house. The home was raided on Saturday by the FBI who were seen removing items from the property. A source close to the investigation said that agents were probing whether Warner had paranoia that 5G technology was being used to spy on Americans. Here’s What We Know About Anthony Quinn Warner, The Person Of Interest In The Nashville Bombing. Longtime Nashville resident Anthony Quinn Warner has been identified as a person of interest in the investigation of a blast that ripped through downtown Nashville early Christmas morning, officials said Sunday. Here’s what we know about Warner so far: Police Chief John Drake confirmed Sunday Warner, who until recently was listed as the owner of the southwest Nashville home searched by agents Saturday afternoon, has been named a person of interest in the investigation, according to the Nashville Tennessean. The house, located in Antioch, Tennessee, can be seen in a Google Street View picture of the address, along with an RV resembling the one used in the explosion Friday. The 63-year-old worked in information technology as a freelance computer technician for local realty company Fridrich & Clark Realty’s Green Hills and other businesses, his former boss Steve Fridrich told the Nashville Tennessean. Warner resigned suddenly this month after working for the realtor for at least four years, a move Fridrich described to the newspaper as “quite out of character.” Warner transferred the Antioch home last month with no money recorded to have changed hands to 29-year-old Michelle L. Swing, of Los Angeles; the year before, he had transferred another property to Swing at 3724 Bakertown Road, though she told the Daily Mail Saturday she was unaware of the transfer. The property transfer records list Warner as unmarried; he does not appear to be a registered voter, and online records do not show Warner as having voted in any election.
