While we still don’t have a motive for the Christmas Day bombing in Nashville, we’re continuing to learn more about the man who carried out the attack.
According to Newschannel 5 in Nashville, Anthony Warner sent packages to several people that included bizarre letters and thumb drives containing conspiracy theory videos from the internet.
The packages, which were postmarked two days before the bombing, did not have a return address, but friends say they were clearly from Warner. The letters were signed “Julio,” the name of Warner’s dog and also a name he would use when sending emails.
In the nine-page letter, Warner discussed 9/11 conspiracy theories, writing that “[t]he moon landing and 9-11 have so many anomalies they are hard to count.” Warner also expressed his belief that September 2011 was supposed to be the end of the planet because aliens and UFOs began launching attacks on the earth, and that the government was covering up those attacks.
Warner also apparently wrote about his belief that reptilians and lizard people controlled the earth and had tweaked human DNA by putting a switch into the human brain. And according to NBC News, authorities are also investigating Warner’s trips to an undisclosed location in Tennessee where he would camp out in his RV and hunt aliens.
What was missing from the letter, however, was any mention of AT&T or any clues as to why he would carry out the bombing just two days after mailing the packages. So ultimately, we may never know the true motive for the bombing, because it may be impossible to find a logical explanation from somebody who clearly wasn’t thinking logically.
