Federal authorities identified Anthony Quinn Warner as the suspect in the Nashville RV bombing on Christmas Day.
Investigators said they used DNA to identify the 63-year-old Warner body found at the scene. The FBI said they also matched the RV’s vehicle identification number with Warner’s registration number.
It is believed that Warner acted alone, but the authorities have yet to determine the motive. Before the Christmas explosion, law enforcement officers did not recognize him.
The explosion shook Nashville on Christmas morning, just before the urban streets were bustling with excitement, and was accompanied by a recorded announcement warning anyone nearby that the bomb would soon detonate.
According to sources, Warner is a computer consultant who was an independent contractor of Fridrich & Clark Realty, a real estate company based in Nashville.
Steve Fridrich, president of Fridrich and Clark, told Fox News that Warner has never been an employee of the company, but occasionally provides services for its computers. Friedrich said that Warner Corporation announced its retirement earlier this month and has not contacted the company further since then.

The company said: “After learning that Tony was the suspect in the Second Avenue bombing on Christmas morning, Friedrich & Clark informed the authorities that he had provided IT services to our company.” “The Tony Warner we know is A very good person, who has never exhibited any behavior that is worse than professional.”
The explosion destroyed an AT&T building. While the company was working to restore services, it continued to cause severe damage to cell phone services and police and hospital communications in several southern states.
Sources close to the investigation told Nashville NBC affiliated TV station WSMV that agents are investigating whether Warner is paranoid about the so-called 5G technology used to monitor Americans.
AT&T provides 5G services nationwide.

County records excavated on Sunday show that Warner has handed over two Nashville homes in the past two years to a 29-year-old Los Angeles entertainment executive, but the relationship between them is unclear. Executive Michelle Swing has not publicly stated whether she knows Warner or not, and has denied knowledge of the two houses.
