LEBANON, Tenn. — Law enforcement investigators held a press conference Tuesday at the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office to give updates on Monday night’s explosion at a home on Vance Lane just outside the Lebanon city limits.

Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan said the investigation was in the preliminary stages and only limited information was known or could be given. He said the investigation was a joint effort by several state, local and federal agencies, including the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Nashville division, the state fire marshal’s office, the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency, Lebanon Public Safety, the FBI and the 15th district attorney’s office.

Bryan said officers responded to the home at 580 Vance Lane on at about 5 p.m. to an apparent explosion from a delivered package. He said officers and WEMA personnel rendered medical attention.

Bryan said Jon Setzer, 74, was found dead at the scene, and Marion Setzer, 72, was taken via LifeFlight helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Marion Setzer remained in the hospital in critical condition, according to the latest information given to Bryan.
