Who is Michelle Louise Swing? Nashville bombing suspect gave away $160K house to LA mom, 29, for free before blast
Warner also transferred another home on Bakertown Road to Swing via a quitclaim deed last year, but she refused to answer whether she had ever met Warner
The Nashville bombing on Christmas Day shook the entire nation. The top suspect of the explosion was 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner. Now, the latest reports suggest that he gifted away a $160,000 house for free to a 29-year-old mother.
Warner signed his property away to Michelle Louise Swing, who lives in Los Angeles, for free, according to county records. Swing’s signature does not appear on the November 25, 2020, transfer document and she told DailyMail.com that she knew absolutely nothing about it. '‘In the state of Tennessee, you can deed the property to someone else without their consent or their signature or anything. I didn't even buy the house he just deeded it over to me without my knowledge. So this all very weird to me, that’s about all I can say."
According to a report by Daily Beast, Warner transferred another home on Bakertown Road to Swing via a quitclaim deed last year. Swing refused to answer whether she had ever met Warner or whether she had family links to him, saying: "I've been told to direct everything else to FBI." FBI investigated the $160,000 property on Saturday morning while they were hunting for the mystery RV driver behind the Christmas blast outside Nashville’s AT&T building. The Christmas morning explosion is now thought to have been the result of a suicide bombing after it was revealed that human remains had been recovered at the scene and officials said they were not looking for another suspect. They did not identify a suspect but unmarried Warner has been named in media reports and a vehicle matching the one used in the bombing is seen parked up beside the two-bed house in Google street view images.
The second house that Warner transferred to Swing in January 2019, was located on Bakertown Road, just a short walk from the house raided on Saturday. The transfer happened just months after he had acquired the property in an intrafamily exchange from Charles Warner. Swing's address in the records is classified as Lenoir City, Tennesse, a two-hour drive from Nashville.
On December 25, deputies arrived at the crime scene before the explosion after someone reported gunfire at around 5.30 am. They found a recreational vehicle, an RV, parked in front of the AT&T building. The speaker system on the RV was announcing a warning about an imminent explosion and telling people to evacuate in what sounded like a recorded female voice. The explosion, which police called an "intentional act", left at least three people injured and destroyed 41 buildings and businesses nearby.
