On Christmas morning, the city of Nashville was rocked by a violent and devastating explosion just yards away from one of the busiest tourist thoroughfares east of the Mississippi River.
But there were only a few non-critical injuries in Music City, thanks to the bomber themselves, who rigged his explosive RV with a lengthy and detailed loudspeaker warning that counted down to the blast itself, admitting in the recorded message that the vehicle was set to detonate.
Furthermore, a large volley of gunfire just an hour ahead of the explosion drew police in to the area. Upon hearing the aforementioned warning, these brave officers remained in the area to help wake the locals and move them to safety.
The warning also creates a wrinkle for law enforcement, as it appeared that the target of the complex scheme was not to hurt anyone, but rather some thing.
Law enforcement is now working a very specific, and paranoid, angle in the case.
News4 Investigates has confirmed FBI agents spent Saturday speaking with a top Nashville real estate agent, who contacted them after fearing the subcontractor who worked for him may be the same man whose home they were searching.
Other federal agents spent much of the day searching the Antioch home of Anthony Warner.
Realtor Steve Fridrich contacted the FBI after reading Warner’s name, as for several years, a man by the name of Tony Warner had worked for him for several years doing information technology work.
Fridrich confirms that agents asked him whether or not Warner had paranoia about 5G technology.
The 5G paranoia angle has already been posited by a number of online investigators, due to the rather apparent targeting of the AT&T data center in front of which the exploding RV was parked.
