Anne Pressly, 1982-2008. R.I.P.

Anne Pressly, the TV news anchor from Little Rock who was found beaten in her home last Monday, succumbed to her injuries today. She was only 26 years old.

Pressly also had a cameo in the Oliver Stone movie W. which I saw last night.

She was found by her mother when Pressly didn't answer her wake up call. Pressly was found beaten beyond recognition about her head, face and neck. She was never able to talk to authorities or anyone else about what had happened.

Little Rock Police do not have anyone in custody but at this point suspect robbery was a motive as one of her credit cards was used at a gas station shortly after the attack.

Given the viciousness of the attack it is hard to believe the attack was random. A deranged stalker who was obsessed with Pressly perhaps? Whatever the circumstances though this woman had her whole life ahead of her and some awful excuse of a human being snuffed it out.
