The Nashville bombing investigation, a strange undertaking, took another turn when the (U.K.) Daily Mail reported that the primary figure in the case had given two houses to a woman in Los Angeles.

The news outlet said it had seen county documents reflecting the transfers to Michelle Swing, though the 29-year-old mother said she was unaware of the exchange.

Multiple sources confirm that Anthony Quinn Warner, a 63-year-old Nashville-area resident, is a person of interest in the Christmas Day bombing. Police officers responding to a report of shots fired encountered an RV blaring a recorded warning that a bomb would detonate in 15 minutes. The RV exploded shortly afterward.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News a suspect in the explosion may have been killed in the blast.

Warner had a similar RV as the one in photos released to the public.

Warner gave Swing the two homes, worth $409,000, according to, one last month and one last year.

It was unclear whether Swing knew Warner.

She declined to comment on her relationship with Warner or any family links to him, saying, “I’ve been told to direct everything else to the FBI.”

A $160,000 Bakertown Road property was raided on Saturday. It was given to Swing on Nov. 25 via quitclaim deed, though her signature does not appear on the transfer.

“In the state of Tennessee you can deed property to someone else without their consent or their signature or anything,” Swing told

“I didn’t even buy the house; he just deeded it over to me without my knowledge. So this is all very weird to me, that’s about all I can say.”

The other property transferred to Swing, also on Bakertown Road, worth $249,000, had belonged a member of Warner’s family. Swing later also used a quitclaim to give the house to another person.
