Nashville-After federal agents returned to zero at a residence in Nashville on Saturday and blew up the city center on Christmas Day, killing three people, destroying dozens of historic buildings, and causing the entire city to panic. Start screening at least 500 leads as communication is interrupted.
The car detonated at around 6:30 am on Christmas morning, what the police called a “deliberate act.” The police responded to the phone call shot in the area. They found an RV in the area playing a recorded warning, saying that the bomb would be detonated in “15 minutes.” The six local officials eager to evacuate the sleeping residents were hailed as “heroes”
CBS News reporter Jeff Pegues reported on Saturday that the police had identified an interesting person, 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner. MSNBC confirmed that people involved in the bombing are searching Warner’s home. Even after the CBS News report, the authorities still refused to confirm any such details in Saturday’s briefing, but said they were not looking for “another topic.”
Despite increasing questions about the bombing, the Warner neighbor on Baker’s Town Road was shocked by the sudden activity of the police and shocked by the idea that he might be involved in the bombing.
“They are one of the best families anyone wants to see,” Bernice Gilli said. She said that since she and her husband moved on this street 56 years ago, she has known the Warner family.
Like most people in this Baker town, Geely and her husband were shocked when local and federal agents showed up on Saturday morning. Geely worried that Warner’s mother would fall or be injured. She told her husband to examine the older woman, but the agent stopped him and told him that Anthony Warner was an interesting person in the bombing.
The people of Geely were shocked by the news. “I’m really worried about her,” Geely said. “She is a very good friend.”
Before law enforcement officers arrived and started asking questions, residents who had known the Warner family for decades did not even know Anthony’s existence.
His current neighbors think Anthony Warner is very quiet. One person told the “Daily Beast”: “He is a very personal person.” “As you can see, his entire house is surrounded.”
The neighbors noticed that the RV disappeared shortly before Christmas. Several children on the street saw pictures of the RV on the Internet and asked their parents if it might be the same as Warner’s RV, but no one really believed it.
According to public records, just four weeks ago, the house was transferred from Warner to a woman through an unsecured claim. The woman, Michelle Swing, told the Daily Mail that she did not pay anything for the house.
Swain was quoted as saying: “In Tennessee, you can transfer property to others without their consent or signature.” “I didn’t even buy a house, he just sold it without my knowledge. Sold it to me. So all this is strange to me, that’s all I can say.”
Swing did not figure out her relationship with Warner (if any). Neighbors interviewed by “Daily Beast” said they knew nothing about the new owner of the house.
But last year, the second house on Bakertown Road was also transferred from Warner to Swain through an unsecured statement. The record lists Warner as unmarried.
Davidson County (Davidson County) records show that after his arrest in January 1978, Warner was found guilty on unspecified felony charges.
The Daily Beast’s attempt to reach Warner and the attempts listed in the property records were unsuccessful.
More than 24 hours after the explosion tore through the city, residents are still struggling to find answers.
According to reports, all three people injured in the explosion were discharged from hospital on Friday. The authorities repeatedly emphasized one point in a briefing on Saturday: The city will continue to operate even if it is still under curfew and power outages.
After the explosion, in addition to the decline of emergency services and mobile phone services in many areas of the city, Internet and TV reception in the entire region also declined, and some companies were unable to process credit card transactions. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee said that at least 41 businesses were destroyed. He said that “it is a miracle that no residents were killed.”
CBS News reported that the AT&T central office was also affected by the explosion, and a fire was reignited at night, causing the building to evacuate.
The Nashville Metropolitan Police Chief John Drake emphasized on Saturday that “Nashville is safe,” and Doug Korneski, the FBI agent in charge, said, “There is no indication.” There is a secondary threat.
But the question of motivation still exists, as does the question of whether anyone was in the RV at the time of the explosion: Drake said Friday night that “organizations that we think may still exist” were found at the scene. However, the authorities have not yet been able to confirm more.
This weekend’s events were particularly painful for people living near Warner on Bakertown Road. Most of the other brick-and-concrete houses on his streets are full of refugees and immigrants who fled violence in Iraq, Africa and Latin America to the United States. For them, the explosion brought them back to the reality that they desperately tried to stay forever.
A woman who asked to speak on condition of anonymity said: “Too many.” “I just can’t overcome it.”
Her friend agreed: “There are people in the world who go outside and think they are going to step on bombs.” “When you think you got rid of it and go to freedom, it’s really scary, and then this happened. I guess you always I don’t know what will happen nearby.”
Although the neighbors hoped to solve the bombing problem, they hoped that Warner did not actually intervene. While watching federal agents conduct a raid, they brainstormed and gave an innocent explanation: Maybe he drove the RV to the mountain for vacation, or sold the RV for vacation.
One of them said: “We didn’t find anything suspicious.”
