Lundborg had worked with Anthony “Tony” Warner during his tenure at A.C.E alarms, a business owned by Lundborg’s father, according to The Daily Beast. After his father’s car accident, Lundborg and Warner were tasked with running the business. Part of their job tasks involved driving to work sites to install and service burglar alarms.
“I worked with Tony as his helper. I kind of looked up to him. He was kind of a hippie. Had long hair, a Magnum, P.I. mustache,” said Lundborg in an interview with The Daily Beast. “He was a smart, cocky kind of guy. I rode around with him all day every day—during the summers, at least for a couple years.”
According to Lundborg, Warner hated authority, smoked weed, and claimed he was in the Navy. It is unknown if he was actually in the Navy, but Warner was arrested for marijuana possession in the 70’s.
While driving around with Lundborg, whenever Warner saw an officer, he would bash police officers.
“I hate cops. They’re all corrupt, Never trust a cop,” Warner would say, according to Lundborg.
Lundborg had spoken to the FBI about Warner. Authorities are currently trying to figure out what motive Warner might have had. According to authorities, Warner had bought into 5G conspiracy theories and might have specifically targeted the AT&T building in what Nashville’s mayor calls an “infrastructure attack.”
“It does appear that the intent was more destruction than death. That’s all still speculation at this point as we continue in our investigation with all of our partners,” said David Rausch, the director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, on Monday.
Authorities are also investigating why Warner had transferred two of his homes to Michelle Swing, a 29-year-old music executive in Los Angeles. She had been given two properties by Warner in the past two years. Swing has refused to state her relationship with Warner and denies receiving a second property from Warner. Warner had allegedly given the second home, on November 25th, to Swing.
“I didn’t even buy the house, he just deeded it over to me without my knowledge. So this is all very weird to me, that’s about all I can say,” said Swing when reached out by the Daily Mail.
Tennessee allows people to “deed property to someone else without their consent or their signature or anything,” according to Swing.
One of Warner’s neighbors, Rick Laude, said that Warner told him that “Nashville and the world is never going to forget me.” Warner also said he was diagnosed with cancer to an individual he gave his car away to.
