Arkansas TV anchor dies days after attack
CNN.COM

CNN affiliate KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas, announced Saturday evening that its morning anchorwoman, Anne Pressly, died from injuries sustained in an assault.

Pressly, 26, was found beaten early Monday at her home. She was hospitalized and sedated.

Pressly's parents released a statement saying they were "with her in her last moments." They also asked for "the privacy we need at this very difficult time," KATV reported.

Police said Pressly was apparently not targeted but was attacked during the course of a burglary. Her purse was missing.

3. That is so sad. Her family must be in so much pain.
One of the articles I read mentioned that the local police thought she might have been the victim of a stalker.
They felt that the violence of the attack was out of character for a mere robbery.

Her poor parents - I couldn't imagine having to face that, knowing that happened to your child. It looked as though she had a big future, too. That's so sad!

8. Really hope they catch whoever did this.
I saw her dad on Good Morning America and he looked like he really thought she would pull through.
So sad, prayers for her family.
