As the investigation into the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville, Tennessee continues, we are learning ever more about the man behind the devastating explosion.
Anthony Warner, the 63 year old man who died in the explosion, had packed his RV with explosives and broadcast a warning to those within earshot of the vehicle warning them to stay away. The tactic seemed to work, as the only fatality in the sizable blast was Warner himself, which has left many wondering if there was a larger purpose to his actions than merely ending his own life.
