At a Sunday afternoon press conference, FBI
agent Doug Korneski said Warner had been
confirmed to be the person responsible for the
Nashville explosion through DNA testing of
remains found at the site.
Investigators also recovered parts of a vehicle
registered to Warner were also from the scene,
he said.
There's no indication anyone else was involved
in the attack, Nashville Police Chief John Drake
told reporters.
Korneski said Warner's motives are still
unclear, and he could not confirm if the
incident could be classed as domestic
terrorism, which he said must be tied to a
specific ideology.
"[Domestic terrorism is] the use of force or
violence in the furtherance of a political [or]
social ideology. We haven't tied it to that yet,"
Korneski said.
Officials encouraged anyone with information

Warner had previously been identified as a
person of interest in the investigation, and on
Saturday agents searched his home in Antioch, a
Nashville neighborhood. The 63-year-old was a
computer technician for local businesses and
once owned a home security company. Warner's
neighbors described him to media outlets like the
Washington Post as "a loner" who rarely left his
home. One of Warner's employers, realtor Steve
idrich, told local television station WSMV he
vas asked by investigators if Warner had
aranoia regarding 5G conspiracy theories and if
could be tied to the explosion, which went off
hear an AT&T transmission building. Fridrich
said he had never heard Warner mention the
conspiracy.
