Investigators Now Believe Nashville Explosion Result of Suicide Bomber

Videos by OutKick

New information continues to roll out in regards to the Christmas day explosion in Nashville. Investigators are now saying the incident could be the result of a suicide bomber.

We already know human remains were found at the site of the bombing. But following a raid by federal agents on the home of a potential suspect, we also know an RV was discovered that is similar to the one used in Nashville.

According to Catherine Herridge with CBS News, there are now DNA tests being conducted on the remains to see if there is a match.

Earlier on Saturday, it was released that a person of interest had been identified. This is an ongoing investigation that is going to take time. But it’s a sigh of relief that investigators continue to make headway on the case.

  1. This whole thing is very fishy. The bomb goes off at 6:30 am. My phone and internet goes out at 11:37am, over 5 hours after the explosion? ATT says the outage is due to the bomb. Here’s the fishy part, any tech company of significant scale has failover capability at its data centers like these. If one data center is destroyed, then they can switch all those services over to another backup location which is always on standby. That can all be done in a matter of minutes, if not seconds, to have service continuity while a center is out of commission. So, we’re supposed to believe ATT, one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies, responsible for a large portion of the US communications, didn’t have failover capability? I don’t buy it. Something is not being told here.

  2. Hypothetically, AT&T SHOULD have failover capability. Here’s where it may break down:

    1) It could be set up but never tested to see if the step-by-step playbook actually works.
    2) If commercial electrical power went off, there should be a gasoline-fueled backup system that covers the area for at least 3 days. Maybe the tank was not filled enough or there was a breakdown in that system.
    3) People failure. Someone has to be around to make decisions. If the decision makers don’t respond (usually a team of 3-4), the backup system doesn’t get turned on.
