The sole suspect believed to be responsible for the Christmas day explosion in Nashville, Tennessee blew himself in the blast, federal officials say.
Anthony Quinn Warner, described by acquaintances as a self-employed computer guru, has been linked to the scene via DNA evidence. The RV involved in the explosion is now also known to have been registered to Warner.
“He was present when the bomb went off and he perished in the bombing,” said Don Cochran, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.
“We’re still following leads, but right now there is no indication that any other persons were involved,” said Douglas Korneski, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Memphis field office. “We’ve reviewed hours of security video surrounding the recreation vehicle. We saw no other people involved.”
While the motive behind the attack is still unclear, federal agents are currently pursuing several leads, including the possibility that a nearby building owned by telecommunications company AT&T may have been a central target in the attack.
