Committees offer update on investigating the Nashville Christmas Day bombing –


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two Metro Nashville committees working to investigate what happened before and after the Christmas Day bombing are offering updates on their progress so far.

We don’t hear much about what’s said in the After Action Review meetings, but we now know the panel has interviewed two key witnesses.

Metro Nashville City council member Jennifer Gamble serves on the five-member panel and says this they’ve interviewed Anthony Warner’s then-girlfriend who tipped off police back in 2019.

She told police back in August of that year, that suspected bomber Warner “was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence.”

The panel also interviewed Warner’s attorney Ray Throckmorton who told police that same day that Warner “frequently talks about the military and bomb-making.” Throckmorton would go on to say Warner “knows what he is doing and is capable of making a bomb.”

Gamble says hearing from these two has made a difference, but she won’t share what was said. She tells us the priority is to find if police should consider any policy changes knowing Warner was on the radar but was never in custody.

“What was done? What was done well and what could be done better,” Gamble says are the questions she needs officers to answer this Friday. Several of the officers who responded to Warner’s home in 2019, will be interviewed by the panel.

The panel includes:

  • Deputy Chief Dwayne Greene
  • Attorney/Professional Standards Division head Kathy Morante
  • Nashville attorney
