Law enforcement authorities are beginning to scale back the investigation at the scene of a bombing at a local residence that occurred on Monday, Feb. 10, just outside of Lebanon city limits.
A news release from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, Nashville Field Division, said investigators have processed the scene at the residence and are scaling back operations in the general neighborhood. Evidence collected at the scene has been taken to the ATF and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation laboratories for analysis.
In addition, the news release said, authorities are following up on information already received through the TBI tip line, 1-800-TBI-FIND.
ATF, along with other law enforcement agencies, announced on Tuesday during a press conference a reward of $8,000 for anyone who has information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the bombing at the residence located at 580 Vance Lane, Lebanon. The reward is a collaborative effort between ATF, TBI, Wilson County Sheriff’s Department, Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Bomb and Arson Unit and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The Sheriff’s Department responded to the residence on Monday, Feb. 10. Upon arrival, a male was found deceased and an injured female was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The deceased male was identified as Jon Setzer, 74, and the injured female was identified as Marion Setzer, 72. Mrs. Setzer reportedly remains in critical condition at VUMC.
The ongoing criminal investigation is being conducted by ATF, TBI, WCSO, SFMO B&A, and the FBI. Authorities emphasized that anyone with the information about the incident should call 1-800 TBI FIND (1-800-824-3463). The public is encouraged to remain vigilant and to notify law enforcement authorities if encounter any suspicious items.
