Warner’s Girlfriend Warns Nashville Police One Year Before Bombing

NASHVILLE, TN(December 30, 2020)—the girlfriend of  Anthony Quinn Warner was making explosives in  a trailer last summer at his home, according to a Nashville police report.  

Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, was named as the Christmas bombing suspect last week.

The FBI said he blew up a camper van outside a telecoms firm, killing himself and injuring three others.

A motive is yet to be established. Warner’s criminal record only consisted of an 1978 marijuana-related charge.

On Monday the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Warner, who had worked in IT and had extensive experience with electronics, was “not on our radar”.

But a statement and report released by the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) on Tuesday shows local and federal authorities were made aware of Warner in August 2019.

The report read “South Precinct officers went to Ms. Perry’s home on the morning of Wednesday, August 21, 2019, on a report from Mr. Throckmorton that Ms. Perry had made suicidal threats to him via telephone and was sitting on her front porch with firearms. Officers arrived and saw that Ms. Perry did have two pistols on the porch next to her, but they were not in her possession and they were not loaded. She related that the guns belonged to a “Tony Warner” and that she did not want them in the house any longer. “Tony Warner” was not on the scene. As a result of their interview with Ms. Perry, and out of concern for her safety, Mobile Crisis was contacted and Ms. Perry spoke with them via telephone. They determined she was in need of psychological evaluation and she voluntarily went with an NFD ambulance for that purpose. While at Perry’s home, as the report reflects, officers also spoke with Throckmorton, who, they were told, represented both Perry and Warner.”

The report further stated “During the week of August 26, 2019, the Hazardous Devices Unit made contact with attorney Throckmorton. The recollection of that call is that Warner did not care for the police, and that Throckmorton would not allow his client to permit a visual inspection of the RV.”

“At no time was there any evidence of a crime detected and no additional action was taken.”

“No additional information about Warner came to the department’s or the FBI’s attention after August 2019. The ATF also had no information on him. The 1 arrest of Warner occurred in January 1978 for marijuana possession.”

Almost one week later the police still has not found a motive for Warner’s actions.
