The conspiracy theory of lizards or reptiles involves the belief that deformed reptiles appear in human form and submit to world domination.
Authorities believe that Warner also spent time searching for alien life forms in nearby state parks.
It is not clear whether these beliefs or behaviors have anything to do with the bombing.
This is a major news update. The previous version of the report is as follows.
On Christmas Eve, in the days he detonated the bomb in downtown Nashville, Anthony Quinn Warner changed his life, which shows that he never intended to survive the bombing and killing three people. explosion.
Warner, 63, gave up the car and told the recipient that he had cancer. A month before the explosion, he signed a document to transfer his long-term residence in the suburbs of Nashville to a woman in California, but found nothing. The computer consultant told an employer that he was about to retire.
But he did not leave clear digital footprints or any other obvious clues to explain why he caused an explosion in a parked recreational vehicle or broadcast a message warning people to flee, lest the explosion destroy dozens of buildings and destroy cell phone services. Area.

When investigators tried to piece together possible motives for the attack, a neighbor recalled a recent conversation with Warner, which seemed ominous in hindsight.
Rick Laude told the Associated Press on Monday that he saw Warner standing on his mailbox less than a week before Christmas, and then got into the car. chat. After asking about the condition of Warner̵
Ward smiled and said, “Oh yes, Nashville, the world will never forget me,” Lauder recalled.
Lauder said he disagrees with this sentence and believes that Warner just means that “good things” will happen financially. When he learned that the authorities identified Warner as a bomber, he was speechless.
Lauder said, “This guy didn’t raise any red flags.”
As investigators continue to search for motives, the body camera videotape released by the Nashville police late Monday provides more information about the explosion and its consequences.
The video from Officer Michael Sipos’s camera recorded that the officers walked past the RV parked across the street, because the recorded warning sound was high, and then helped people evacuate after the thunderous camera exploded. When the police made a voice call to all available personnel, car sirens and sirens sounded and people tripped in the glass-filled streets.
David Rausch, director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, said the authorities wanted to establish motivation, but sometimes they simply couldn’t.
Rausch said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” program on Monday: “The best way to find motivation is to talk to individuals. In this case, we won’t be able to do that.”
Law enforcement officials said that investigators are analyzing Warner property collected during the investigation, including a computer and a portable storage drive, and continue to interview witnesses in an attempt to identify potential motives. The official said that after reviewing his financial transactions, he also discovered potential purchases of bomb-making parts.

The official said that Warner Corporation recently handed over a car and told the person he had given him that he had been diagnosed with cancer, although it is not clear whether he actually has cancer. The official said that investigators used some items collected from the vehicle, including hats and gloves, to match Warner’s DNA, which was obtained from a member of his family.
The official was unable to discuss the matter publicly, and talked with the Midland on an anonymous basis.
One month before the explosion, Warner apparently assigned his home in Antioch, Tennessee to a Los Angeles woman. Property records on November 25 indicate that Warner transferred the house to the woman at a price without any money. There is no signature of the woman on the document.
Warner served as a computer consultant to Steve Fridrich, a real estate agent in Nashville, who told the Associated Press in a text message that Warner had stated that he would retire early this month.

Officials said Warner had not received attention before Christmas. A law enforcement report released on Monday showed that Warner’s only arrest was for marijuana-related charges in 1978.
Raush said: “It seems that the intention is not only to destroy but not to die, but at this point, we are still continuing investigations with all our partners. All this is still speculation.”
Officials have yet to provide any insights on why Warner chose a specific location for the bomb attack. The bomb attack destroyed the AT&T building and caused severe damage to cell phone services and police and hospital communications in several southern states. The company said that by Monday, most services had been restored for residents and businesses.
A law enforcement official said that forensic analysts are reviewing evidence at the explosion site to try to determine the composition of the explosives and intelligence and investigative clues from the US bomb data center. Investigators are investigating Warner’s digital footprint and financial situation. history.
The official does not have the right to discuss the ongoing investigation and socialize with the Midland without anonymity.
The explosion occurred on a holiday morning, much earlier than the streets in the city. The police responded to reports of a shooting incident on Friday when they encountered an RV and issued a warning that the bomb would detonate within 15 minutes. Then, for unknown reasons, the audio was switched to the recording of Petula Clark’s 1964 hit single “Downtown” shortly before the explosion.
