Attack intended to create chaos, fear’: Nashville investigates ‘intentional’ Christmas Day explosion that rocked the city

One day after an RV exploded and rocked downtown Nashville, federal and local investigators focused Saturday on the circumstances leading up to what they call an “intentional act.”

Police also found what they believe are human remains but have not yet confirmed any fatalities. It is still unclear whether the remains were that of anyone involved in the Christmas Day blast. The FBI has taken the lead in the investigation.

This was a terrible day, but Nashville has faced other challenges, particularly this year,” Nashville Mayor John Cooper said late Friday. “We can rebuild and get back to normal. This morning’s attack on our community was intended to create chaos and fear in this season of peace and hope, but the spirit of our city cannot be broken.
