Nashville Bomber's Girlfriend Warned Cops He Was a Danger
The former girlfriend of Nashville bomber Anthony Warner made a plea to police last year warning them something bad was going to happen. "I know what he's doing, and I'm afraid for my life and everybody else's," she told her attorney in a voicemail in Aug. 2019. The attorney, Ray Throckmorton, played the voicemail exclusively for TV station WTVF. Throckmorton alerted police and they spoke to the woman. Nashville Police Chief John Drake is defending his department, saying they did all they could.
A woman who said she was the girlfriend of the man who set off the Christmas Day explosion in Nashville told police last year he was making bombs in his recreational vehicle, according to a statement and documents the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department provided to CNN.
On August 21, 2019, police received a call from an attorney representing Pamela Perry, the woman who said she was the girlfriend of the bomber Anthony Warner, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said Tuesday. Her attorney, Raymond Throckmorton, said she had made "suicidal threats to him via telephone."
When police arrived at Perry's home, they found two unloaded pistols near Perry, who said they belonged to Warner. She told officers she did not want them in the home any longer and that Warner was "building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence," according to a "matter of record" report from the MNPD.
The police also spoke to Throckmorton, who once represented Warner and was also present at Perry's home. He told authorities Warner "frequently talks about the military and bomb-making. (Throckmorton) stated that he believes that the suspect knows what he is doing and is capable of making a bomb," the report said.
CNN has reached out to Throckmorton for comment about his account -- first reported by the Tennessean -- but has not yet heard back.
An officer observed Warner's home for several days, but found no evidence of bomb making, according to Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake. It would have required a sign of a crime being committed, or that a bomb was being made, to obtain a legal search warrant or subpoena, Drake said.
#Nashville During the pandemic, many people have been lonely and vulnerable, leading to a rise in online sweetheart scams. But when a stranger reached out to Patti Gouff on Instagram, her instincts told her the would-be Romeo was just too good to be true. For weeks, Gouff recorded her conversations with a man who sent photos and said he was falling in love. Then came the big ask: a $5,000 loan. These sweetheart scams are not at all far-fetched; thousands fall for them. But who was the man in the pictures?

Celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky is hopping mad after he was denied the coronavirus vaccine because his "paperwork wasn't in order," he says. A week later, he tested positive for the disease at his lavish Hollywood home. Now he's being treated at home with infusions of the antibody drug Bamlanivimab, an expensive and hard to procure drug. Now some are accusing him of getting special treatment. Dr. Drew played down the pandemic in the early days, and has since apologized.
