This comes after the city was bombed.

In the days before he detonated a bomb in downtown Nashville on Christmas, Anthony Quinn Warner changed his life in ways that suggest he never intended to survive the blast that killed him and wounded three other people.

Warner, 63, gave away his car, telling the recipient that he had cancer. A month before the bombing, he signed a document that transferred his longtime home in a Nashville suburb to a California woman for nothing in return. The computer consultant told an employer that he was retiring.

But he did’t leave behind a clear digital footprint or any other obvious clues to explain why he set off the explosion in his parked recreational vehicle or played a message warning people to flee before it damaged dozens of buildings and knocked out cellphone service in the area.

While investigators tried to piece together a possible motive for the attack, a neighbor recalled a recent conversation with Warner that seemed ominous only in hindsight. 

Rick Laude told The Associated Press on Monday that he saw Warner standing at his mailbox less than a week before Christmas and pulled over in his car to talk. After asking how Warner´s elderly mother was doing, Laude said he casually asked him, ‘Is Santa going to bring you anything good for Christmas?’

Warner smiled and said, ‘Oh, yeah, Nashville and the world is never going to forget me,’ Laude recalled.

In 2016, Reese’s store was named the best shop in Tennessee.

The Wild star took to Instagram at the time to announce Southern Living magazine readers had named the flagship store as the best in Tennessee and the second best in the South.

She wrote: ‘Thank you @southernlivingmag and your incredible readers for voting @draperjames the #1 store in Tennessee and 2nd store in the South! So honored! #SouthsBest #SouthernPride (sic)’

And the magazine also took to their account on the photo-sharing site to announce the news.

They shared: ‘In case you missed it, our readers named @draperjames the best store in Tennessee!

‘To celebrate, @reesewitherspoon has a special discount just for you. Follow the link in our profile for all the details. #SouthsBest.’

The blonde beauty was thrilled when she opened the first store in Nashville.

Of her decision to open the flagship there, she said: ‘I grew up in Nashville and it’s been such a direct inspiration for the brand. It just felt like the right place for our flagship.’

While Draper James chief executive officer Andrea Hyde added: ‘There’s a lot of shared references. We have a genuine story and such a large megaphone. Reese is a world-class storyteller. To bring this all to one place and tell the story in one building is wonderful.

‘We’ll open one to two stores a year for the next five years … Reese has such a wide reach. Customers have asked for bridal, shoes and swimwear. We’re only 21 weeks old. It will all come in time.’
