Realtor Makes Startling Discovery

Realtor Makes Startling Discovery

Twenty to 25 homes in a Nashville neighborhood were evacuated after a Realtor who was prepping a home on the market for a viewing discovered what appeared to be explosives in the crawl space of the home on Catspaw Court. The devices were thought  to be pipe bombs and a bomb squad was called in to remove the explosives. According to local news, authorities believed the devices were simulators, and it is not clear if police later determined that they were still hazardous.
According to one news source, the previous owner of the home died suddenly and the house had been up for sale for more than a year. Reportedly the previous owner used to be a member of Nashville's Metro Bomb Squad, which could explain why there were simulated explosives at the home. It was not clear, though, why the owner would have been allowed to transport explosive devices to his house.
Police reportedly kept surrounding neighbors out of their homes for five hours while authorities removed the devices and concluded their on-scene investigation. Residents weren't allowed to return to their homes until 12:30 a.m. the following morning. The identity of the Realtor who found the explosives was not disclosed. A TV Station reported that a person who had inspected the home just a month ago saw the devices but did not report them to police because that person didn't think there was a threat to public safety.
