Human remains found at the site of the Christmas RV bombing in Nashville belong to Anthony Quinn Warner, the tech expert behind blast, officials announced Sunday.

“Anthony Warner is the bomber,” said US Attorney Don Cochran during a press briefing.

“He was present when the bomb went off, and then he perished in the bombing.”

Warner, 63, is the only known fatality in the bombing, which also left three people injured and caused significant property damage, including to an AT&T building, knocking out cell service across the state and much of the south.

Forensic testing was used to match the remains found at the scene with Warner’s DNA, as well as that of relatives, officials said.

Investigators are probing whether Warner touched off the massive explosion over his fears of 5G cellular technology and his suspicion that it was being used to spy on the American public, it had previously been reported.

Authorities declined to discuss a motive during the Sunday briefing citing the ongoing investigation, but said that they are closely monitoring Warner’s activities, including online.

Prior to the explosion, an audio recording emanated from the RV warning locals to evacuate the area.

The ominous recording also included a countdown to the explosion and, eerily, the classic Petula Clark pop song “Downtown.”

Authorities said they believe Warner acted alone, and that there is no lingering danger to the public.

He was not previously known to be on the radar of any law-enforcement agencies, officials said.
