THE Nashville bomber hoped he would be "hailed a hero" for targeting an AT&T building because he believed 5G tech was killing people, it is claimed.
Police are also reportedly probing whether Anthony Quinn Warner's paranoia was fuelled by the death of his dementia-ridden dad – who worked for an AT&T subsidiary.
Warner, 63, who died at the site of the bomb blast, was "heavily into conspiracy theories", a report says.
On Christmas Day, a bomb planted by the IT worker in a motor home exploded in downtown Nashville injuring three people and wrecking nearby buildings.
Yesterday, DNA from human remains found at the blast site – located near an AT&T building – was matched to the 63-year-old.
According to the Daily Mail, Warner believed 5G was the "root of all deaths in the region".
Baseless conspiracy theories have emerged online this year about ultra-fast 5G internet including that it's a tool to spy on people.
Another wild claim is that the broadband network has fueled the spread of Covid-19.
Since Warner has been named as the bomber, police have reportedly seized his electronic devices from this home in Antioch, Nashville.
A source told the Mail: "We are waiting on the digital footprint that should finally provide us with some answers.
"The unofficial motive thus far is the suspect believed 5G was the root of all deaths in the region and he’d be hailed a hero."
And cops are investigating whether Warner was motivated by the death of his father Charles B. Warner, the report says.
Charles, who died of dementia in 2011 aged 78, worked for BellSouth, a former subsidiary of AT&T which re-merged with the telecommunications giant in 2006.
Nashville Mayor John Cooper also told CBS's Face The Nation that he suspects the AT&T building was targeted by the bomber.
"[It] feels like there has to be some connection to the AT&T facility and the site of the bombing," he said
"That is a bit of local insight, it has to have something to do with the infrastructure."
This comes after The Sun exclusively revealed that Warner was previously reported to police for "making bombs in his RV back in August of last year."
A report seen by The Sun said the home investigated by cops on Saturday was “clean and organized.”
As Warner was named as the suspect of the bombing, his mother, 85-year-old Betty Lane, praised her son as a "good man."
"I‘m devastated and upset. I can’t say any more," she told The Sun in an exclusive interview.
It was also revealed by The Sun on Sunday that Warner wrote to Michelle Swing that he planned to "travel on Christmas Eve to spend a few weeks in the woods with his dogs."
Warner gifted two homes, both on Bakertown Road in Nashville, to the 29-year-old – although Swing claims she had no knowledge of the winfall.
She is not suspected of any wrongdoing in the incidents.
