Nearly three months after a motor home exploded in Nashville on Christmas Day, the FBI ruled out a terrorist motive. The attacker was “driven in part by a host of life stressors,” including paranoia and “various eccentric conspiracy theories,” the US federal police said in a statement Monday.
The FBI investigation would show that the man acted alone; he himself equipped the vehicle with an improvised explosive device and then detonated it.
The perpetrator, 63-year-old Anthony Warner, is said to have deliberately chosen to detonate the bomb in downtown Nashville just before sunrise. As a result, his action would have an impact, but the risk of injury to bystanders would be as small as possible.
Warner himself was killed in the blast, three others were injured. The camper was parked in the street and played a loud recording, which told that the bomb would detonate within fifteen minutes. Police arrived quickly and had evacuated the area just before the explosive detonated.
