Authorities identify man responsible for Nashville explosion

Federal authorities identified 63-year-old Anthony Warner as the man responsible for a motor home explosion in downtown Nashville on Friday. The motor home exploded on Christmas morning (killing Warner and injuring three others) after broadcasting a warning message telling people to evacuate the area. The explosion damaged over 40 businesses, including a nearby AT&T building (disrupting phone and internet service across several states). Warner is believed to have acted alone, and law enforcement officials are still investigating his motive.
