The strange tale of the Nashville Christmas Day explosion has consistently provided surprises for those who’ve followed along, and it appears as though it’s not done yet.
The story began with reports of automatic gunfire in the pre-dawn hours of Christmas, just a block off of Nashville’s main tourist row. When police arrived, they heard a loudspeaker broadcast emanating from an RV in which a female voice stated that the vehicle was set to explode. Officers worked to evacuate the area, and by the time the vehicle did indeed detonate, the only casualty of the event was the man inside the RV who set the whole thing up.
Other than suicide, police have had no real idea of Anthony Warner’s motive in creating such an elaborate send off, except that be may have been targeting an AT&T data center in the building adjacent to where the RV was parked.
Now, new clues are emerging as to who Warner was, and what he may have been trying so violently to accomplish.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation says accused Nashville bomber Anthony Warner sent materials expressing his viewpoints to acquaintances across the country.
The FBI said in a statement that Anthony Warner sent materials which expressed his viewpoints “to several acquaintances throughout the country.”
Authorities have not released much information on these materials, and is still looking for correspondents with Warner to come forward by dialing 1-800-CALL-FBI.
Earlier in the investigation, neighbors expressed concerns that Warner was a bit of a loner, and that he had dabbled in conspiracy theories regarding “shape shifting lizard people” and possibly also 5G technology.
