Anthony Warner, the suspect in the Dec. 25 Nashville bombings, sent packages to acquaintances across the country before his death, the FBI said.
Warner is suspected of blowing up an RV in downtown Nashville, injuring three people and damaging at least 41 buildings. He died in the explosion.
WTVF reported that an acquaintance of Warner received a package, postmarked December 23, containing numerous conspiracy theories about aliens, the 9/11 attacks and lizards.
The FBI said Warner sent packages to acquaintances across the country and urged those who received them to report to authorities.
Authorities have previously said Warner was paranoid about 5G cellular networks, the subject of numerous conspiracy theories. Warner also reportedly donated all of his possessions in the weeks leading up to the attack.
An acquaintance of Anthony Warner, the Nashville bombing suspect, received a package of nine typewritten pages and two USB drives containing conspiracy theories he believed in, the local outlet WTVF reported.
Authorities said Anthony Warner, 63, was responsible for an RV explosion in downtown Nashville on December 25, injuring at least three people and damaging at least 41 buildings, many of which are historical. Warner died in the explosion.
The authorities have describe as a suicide attack, but did not reveal a motive.
According to WTVF, a man who knew Warner received a New Year’s package from the suspect, postmarked December 23 – two days before the attack. He was immediately turned over to the FBI, the outlet reported.
WTVF reported that Warner had sent similar packages to other people.
In a statement to Insider, an FBI spokesperson said, “We know that the suspect sent documents that espoused his views to multiple acquaintances across the country,” and asked people who received those documents. to report them.
The envelope received on New Year’s Day did not contain a return address, but the remarks inside and the signature clearly indicated that it was from Warner, WTVF said.
The cover letter in the package was signed by “Julio,” a name Warner had used to sign emails to friends in the past, WTVF reported.
“Hey man… You’ll never believe what I found in the park,” the accompanying letter read, according to the outlet. “The knowledge I have gained is immeasurable. I now understand everything, and I mean everything, from who/what we really are, to what the known universe really is.”
According to WTVF, the package contained at least nine typewritten pages and two Samsung USB drives, with claims such as:
“The moon landing and 9/11 have so many anomalies that it’s hard to count them.”
Aliens and UFOs began attacking Earth in September 2011, but the media covered it up.
Reptiles and lizards controlled the earth and altered human DNA.
All of these claims are baseless or bizarre conspiracy theories. WTVF said it chose not to publish the letters in their entirety to avoid giving unnecessary attention to Warner and his worldview.
Insider could not independently verify the contents of the letter, and the FBI did not respond to questions regarding the specific letter.
Nowhere in those missives did Warner mention the Nashville bombing or anything that might suggest a motive for it, WTVF reported.
Shortly after the bombing, local media reported that Warner was paranoid about 5G cellular networks – the subject of many baseless conspiracy theories, including that it causes cancer and the coronavirus pandemic.
The theory gained momentum in early April, with people in the UK harass telecommunications engineers and set mobile phone masts on fire in response.
