A five-member panel will review how Nashville cops responded to a tip from the girlfriend of Christmas RV bomber Anthony Quinn Warner some 16 months earlier, police said Thursday.
Nashville Police Chief John Drake said the group will consist of three people from outside the Tennessee department to look into its response to Warner’s home on Aug. 21, 2019 — more than a year before authorities say he killed himself and wounded three others by setting off a bomb-packed RV on Christmas morning.
“These five persons will meet with the officers involved in the near future, hear the information they had in August 2019, and what they did at the time based on that information,” Drake said in a statement. “The review will focus specifically on 2019 to determine whether any gaps existed from which we can learn moving forward.”
The announcement comes more than a week after The Tennessean reported that Nashville cops went to Warner’s home following
