FBI Reportedly Investigating Link to 5G Technology Conspiracy in Nashville Bombing
A new report claims that the FBI had been made aware of the man who is allegedly a person of interest in the Christmas morning explosion in Nashville.
At about 6:30 a.m. on Friday, an RV exploded in Nashville near the AT&T building. Residents of the area were warned to evacuate. Three people were injured in the blast, which disrupted telecommunications services around the city.
On Saturday, a house in the Antioch section of Nashville was searched, and media accounts named Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, as a person of interest in the case. On Sunday, a CBS report said the FBI had been made aware of Warner.
“BREAKING: @jeffpeguescbs reports for CBS News: Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, is the person of interest in the Nashville Christmas Day explosion. At least 2 tips were called in to @FBI about Warner, prior to the explosion. Quinn is a Nashville area resident,” CBS correspondent David Begnaud tweeted.

According to WSMV-TV, a Nashville real estate agent reached out to the FBI after the explosion when Warner’s name was mentioned as a person of interest.
Steve Fridrich said agents asked him whether or not Warner had had concerns about 5G technology.
WSMV cited “a source close to the federal investigation” said that among the angles being investigated was whether Warner believes 5G technology was being used as a way to spy on Americans.
Investigators are theorizing at this point that the bomber blew himself up in the RV, The Washington Post reported, citing as its sources “two people familiar with the matter, who cautioned that officials are still pursuing numerous leads and that no final conclusions have been reached.”
Human remains were found at the scene of the blast. Warner’s mother will be swabbed to determine a potential match, according to Newsweek.
Tony Rodriguez, a neighbor of Warner, said that on Saturday, the FBI took away a computer motherboard from Warner’s home, the Post reported.
Apparently, evidence has been found. Seems like this address is going to be the center point of further investigations and questions. https://t.co/NwHMJ6twoY

Rodriguez said his neighbor, to whom he never spoke, could be seen working on an antenna atop the house. Rodriguez said the man posted “No Trespassing” and warning signs around the property, particularly where an RV was kept
“He always seemed like an oddball,” Rodriguez said.
FBI Special Agent Douglas Korneski on Saturday said he “can’t confirm any individuals or anybody we’ve identified.”
