Lawsuit filed over reward money in Nashville Christmas Day bombing

A woman connected with the Nashville Christmas day bomber filed a lawsuit Friday, claiming she should receive the $284,000 in rewards offered in the aftermath of the blast.

The suit, filed by Pamela Perry, seeks the reward because she came forward “at great personal risk to aid law enforcement in identifying” Anthony Warner as the bomber.

Warner detonated a bomb in downtown Nashville around 6:30 a.m. on Christmas morning last year. The blast significantly damaged buildings in the Second Avenue and Commerce Street area, and damaged an AT&T switch facility, which crippled telephone and internet services across the state.

Warner was the only person killed by the bomb.

An investigation conducted in the months following determined Warner acted alone.
