(previously reported)

Fox 17 has confirmed Marian Setzer, wife of former Nashville attorney Jon Setzer has died from her injuries caused by a package which exploded after the couple received it in the mail at their Lebanon home.

Jon Setzer, 74, died during the initial explosion, but Marian, 72, who was a long-time dental assistant, had been in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center until she passed Wednesday night.

Her passing comes on the heels of a CNN report which cited a source  <http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/12/justice/tennessee-lawyer-letter-bomb-death/index.html?hpt=hp_t2>as saying a note was attached to the explosive package. Former ATF agent and bomb expert Joseph Vince told the station investigators are likely exploring if revenge was a factor. "With a note in there, it very well may be some intentional revenge or something, that the attacker, the bomber, wanted to send them a message. This is a very important piece of evidence, because now you may have handwriting."

Marian's passing now leaves investigators searching for answers as to how the package was delivered and what circumstances could have led up to Monday's tragic event.

Investigators are offering an $8,000 reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction for whoever is responsible for the killing of the couple. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
