Nashville Police Chief John Drake said that “organizations” were discovered at the site of a massive explosion that shook the city on Christmas Day. These organizations are said to be composed of human remains.
Three people were injured in the early morning explosion. The explosion originated from a motorhome parked in downtown Nashville. Witnesses said the vehicle broadcasted the 15-minute countdown to the explosion, warning people nearby to “evacuate” the area due to the bomb. It is not clear if anyone is in the RV.
No further casualties were confirmed. However, Drake said that the police believed the organization “may be” the body, and two law enforcement officials who asked not to be named told the Associated Press that the body was found in the area.
After being asked to confirm whether the remains were found at the evening press conference, Drake said: “We have found an organization that we think may be a legacy.”
He added: “The RV was detonated, so if it’s inside, then we don’t know, it’s a huge explosion.” “The investigation is still going on. Things are happening around there. So we will Continue to examine it to see if it is a human remains.”
When asked about the “estimate” of the death toll at the scene, Drake reiterated that the death toll has not yet been confirmed. He said: “At present, we have no known death toll.”
Videos appearing on social media appeared to show the explosion of a nearby camera. You can hear the recorded voice on the video, repeat “You must evacuate the area immediately” twice, and then say “If you can hear this message, please evacuate immediately” twice. Then, the image flashes quickly and turns white because of a loud explosion.
Although the ongoing investigation may help quickly eliminate some uncertainties, especially whether the discovered organization came from a person killed in the explosion, the motive of the person who carried out the apparently intentional incident remains unclear. According to reports, as of Friday night, all three injured persons have been hospitalized and are in stable condition.
Drake said: “We are doing everything we can.” “Why Christmas morning? We don’t know, it was a total surprise. In fact, when I was told this morning, I thought it might be the propane explosion of the RV , But it turns out it was intentional.”
He added: “We are following up on upcoming prompts.” “We will continue to investigate.”
