Waco attorney Jonathan Sibley said in a prepared statement Saturday that his client, Bryce Reed anxiously awaits his next court appearance Wednesday, which will include a detention hearing.

Authorities arrested Reed on Friday, but stressed that he has not been linked to the April 17 explosion in West.

The statement said Reed remained “heartbroken” about the explosion, in which he lost friends, and wants to continue to help his community rebuild.

Reed was a first responder, but two days after the explosion was “let go” from West EMS for unknown reasons.

Reed delivered a eulogy for Cyrus Reed, a fellow fire fighter who died in the factory explosion according to WDFW TV. They are not related.

“Cyrus was on fire for life, he said in the eulogy. “He lived his life from day to day with the knowledge that one day, he would ultimately meet his demise.”

Police also investigated Cyrus Reed’s former apartment but would not specify what exectly they were looking for.
