More information has emerged regarding the awful Christmas Day bombing in downtown Nashville.
Thankfully, only three people left the blast with minor injuries, however, investigators have found human remains near the blast site. And now, they believe that those human remains could belong to the bomber.
According to CNN, authorities believe it was most likely a suicide bombing:
“Investigators believe the explosion was likely the result of a suicide bombing, according to two law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation.”
And according to Newsweek, the suspect’s mother will be swabbed for DNA to compare with the human remains.
“I would say, in order to identify the human remains, it’s likely a family member of Mr. Warner would be asked to provide DNA. This will most likely be done by the FBI, who is the lead investigative agency.”
A person of interest has been revealed, his house has been searched, and while a connection to the AT&T Building may be in play, a definitive motive for the bombing has not been released.
One thing is for sure however, the damage is extensive.
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department identified the six officers (heroes) that worked to evacuate residents prior to the blast:
Officer Brenna Hosey, who has been with the department for 4 years;
Officer James Luellen, who has been with the department for 3 years;
Officer Michael Sipos, who has been with the department for 16 months;
Officer Amanda Topping, who has been with the department for 21 months;
Officer James Wells, who has been with the department for 21 months; and
Sergeant Timothy Miller, who has been with the department for 11 years.
