Nashville Bomber Left Both Elusive Motive and Hints of Trouble


In the days before the bomb went off on Christmas in Nashville, Tennessee, the identified bomber Anthony Quinn Wagner made some abrupt changes in his life.


All the actions suggest Wagner didn’t intend to survive the blast or come out alive. A month before the incident, he signed a document, transferring his home in California’s suburb to a woman at no cost. He also gave away his car, telling the recipient he had cancer.


However, Wagner failed to leave behind a clear motive on why the explosion went off on his parked recreational vehicle. He additionally warned people of the oncoming danger before it knocked out phone call services in the area and damaged 40 buildings.


One neighbor described Wagner, who was identified as the bomber, as a loner who rarely associated with other people.


Rausch TBI director said Warner, of Antioch, Tennessee, had not been under any law enforcement radar.


Nashville resident to visit homes since Christmas

Authorities will escort about 20 people to secure and survey their homes and businesses in downtown Nashville.


People will only access buildings that structural engineers deem safe, said Chris Taylor, Metro Nashville Police Chief, during a presser.



It could take weeks before people get access to buildings along streets where the explosion took place.


On Friday last week, a recreational vehicle parked on 2nd Avenue North close by the AT&T transmission exploded after a message went out to those close by, warning them to evacuate.


Although the extent of their injuries remains unknown, most patients have gone home, said Jill Newham, TriStar Centennial Medical Center spokesperson.


Small business owners who fought to survive the economic hardship brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic now face a different hurdle.
