Nashville police officers went to the home of Christmas Day suicide bomber Anthony Warner in August 2019 after his girlfriend claimed he was constructing bombs in the RV that decimated a block of the city’s downtown, disrupting cellphone and 911 services for days. The new report contradicts claims from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations that Warner was “not on our radar” prior to the bombing.
Officers were called to home of Warner’s girlfriend on Aug. 21, just a mile and a half away from Warner’s home on Bakertown Lane, according to the Tennessean. They found her outside her home with two unloaded guns where she told officials that Warner “was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence,” according to an Metropolitan Nashville Police Department report.
MNPD spokesman Don Aaron told the outlet that the girlfriend “related that the guns belonged to a ‘Tony Warner’ and that she did not want them in the house any longer.”
The girlfriend’s lawyer, Raymond Throckmorton III, said at the time that Warner “frequently talks about the military and bomb making,” telling authorities that Warner “knows what he is doing and is capable of making a bomb.”
