Nashville police were warned in 2019 that Anthony Warner was making a bomb inside his RV but nothing was done to stop him. Surprisingly Nashville police was warned by Warner’s girlfriend.
Warner’s girlfriend told Nashville cops on Aug. 21, 2019, that he “was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence,” according to a report Tuesday in The Tennessean.
But when authorities showed up at Warren’s door no one answered, and a subsequent request to search the property was denied.
Warner’s bomb-making then continued unhindered until Christmas morning, when he detonated explosives in the vehicle and leveled a stretch of downtown Nashville.
Warner had only one arrest, in January 1978, for possession of marijuana, The Tennessean reported.
Later in the month, the Defense Department also reported that “checks on Warner were all negative,” Aaron told The Tennessean on Tuesday. The ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) which also had no information about Warner.
Raymond Throckmorton III, arranged a conversation with Warner, but the lawyer told them Warner “did not care for the police,” and would not agree to any inspection of his RV.
Authorities are still investigating possible motives behind the bombing.
