Nashville cops on Friday afternoon released a photo of the motorhome that blew up downtown, gutting buildings and injuring several people as Christmas dawned in Music City.
The explosion resulted in three injuries, building damages, and a disruption of AT&T service in the area. The bombing appears to be intentional according to authorities.
“This is the RV that exploded on 2nd Ave N this morning. It arrived on 2nd Ave at 1:22 a.m.,” the Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted.

Anthony Quinn Warner, 63 of Nashville was identified as the lone nut who parked the RV on 2nd Avenue in downtown Nashville and broadcast a warning before the Christmas morning blast. Following the explosion, Tennessee’s governor noted the Nashville blast affected over 20 local 911 call centers, residential phone lines and cell service.
Don Cochran, the US Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee on Sunday said during a press conference that Nashville bomber Anthony Warner perished at the site of the explosion. Warner’s DNA was found at the site of the explosion.1

Within 24 hours of the #NashvilleBombing, the FBI “was able to tell us who the suspect was, that he was in fact killed in the bombing…but they had Hunter Biden’s laptop for over a year & took no action. None. Zero.” pic.twitter.com/b62S4wTz4r

Cops who found the RV while responding to a report of shots fired heard a recorded announcement warning that a “a potential bomb would detonate within 15 minutes,” police Chief John Drake said during a news conference earlier Friday.
An unconfirmed YouTube video also appears to contain audio of the recording, with a female voice urging people to flee the area just before the blast, which officials have called an “intentional act.”
“All buildings in this area must be evacuated now. All buildings in this area must be evacuated now,” the voice says.
“If you can hear this message, evacuate now. If you can hear this message, evacuate now.”

Officials have said three people were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries following the 6:30 a.m. explosion, which took place just blocks from the historic Ryman Auditorium, former home of the Grand Ole Opry.
Video evidence seems to indicate that an incoming missile may have initiated the explosion in Nashville. The following skyline video, embedded below, shows quite clearly an incoming missile trail immediately before the explosion.
SolarWinds, the company that fell victim to a devastating cyber attack in March, is owned by Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo. Until 2015, Silver Lake owned SunGard, an IT company with a data center virtually in the same location where the Nashville Christmas Day bomb exploded on Christmas Day.
National File first reported that the location of the explosion was in the same spot as a data center owned by a company called SunGard, on 200 Commerce Street. Silver Lake, a $75 billion investment firm with questionable ties to China, bought SunGard in 2005, according to a Blackstone press release. In 2015, SolarWinds was purchased by Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo for $4.5 billion, according to the SolarWinds website. Silver Lake sold SunGard to Fidelity National Information Services Inc. for nearly $11 billion in August 2015.
Silver Lake has recently come under fire for their questionable ties to the communist Chinese, who President Donald Trump suggested may be behind the SolarWinds cyber attack as National File reported. SolarWinds ties to China are beginning to make their way into public view amid the announcement of the cyber breach that reportedly struck the company in March. SolarWinds board director Kenneth Hao “led the establishment” of a $75 billion investment firm into China, as National File reported.
Months before the SolarWinds cyber attack, Thoma Bravo bought JD Power from a mysterious Chinese company called XIO Group for $1.88 billion in 2019, as National File reported. SolarWinds director Seth Boro, a man who was instrumental in starting the private equity firm known as Thoma Bravo, “currently serves on the board of directors of several software and technology service companies in which certain investment funds advised by Thoma Bravo hold an investment,” according to his biography on the SolarWinds website.
In 2019, Thoma Bravo bought JD Power for $1.88 billion from XIO Group, a mysterious Chinese company based in Hong Kong.
According to the Washington Post, both Thoma Bravo and Silver Lake sold hundreds of millions of dollars in SolarWinds shares just days before the announcement of the SolarWinds breach, raising concerns about potential insider trading.
“Silver Lake, a Silicon Valley investor with a history of high-profile tech deals including Airbnb, Dell and Twitter, sold $158 million in shares of SolarWinds on Dec. 7 — six days before news of the breach became public. Thoma Bravo, a San Francisco-based private equity firm, also sold $128 million of its shares in SolarWinds on Dec. 7.
Together, the two investment firms own 70 percent of SolarWinds and control six of the company’s board seats, giving the firms access to key information and making their stock trades subject to federal rules around financial disclosures.”While the owners of SolarWinds’ connections to China certainly raise eyebrows, the SolarWinds company itself has extensive ties to China as well. SolarWinds partnered with M.Tech in May 2020 to expand business opportunities in China, just weeks after the company had been breached, as National File reported.
National File was able to quickly verify that Powell quoted a former member of the 305th in the lawsuit, which declared that “a former electronic intelligence analyst under the 305th Military Intelligence with experience gathering SAM missile system electronic intelligence” told her that “the Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran” to manipulate the election.
We also now know that the location, which was blurred out by Google street maps, housed the AT&T / NSA VoIP Router Complex, which allows the NSA to spy on all phone conversations and phone texts of anyone using the AT&T network. The Intercept article, “The Wiretap Rooms,” explains the existence of “hidden NSA spy hubs” all across America.
Two days later, the FBI investigated a suspicious white box truck in Lebanon, Tennessee that the FBI and Wilson County authorities told local media that the vehicle was “playing audio similar to what was heard before the Christmas Day explosion.”
