    CNN) -- CNN affiliate KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas, said Saturday evening that its morning anchorwoman, Anne Pressly, died. She was 26 years old.


    Anne Pressly, 26, was a popular morning news anchor at KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    Pressly 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.

    Pressly was beaten around the head, face and neck. She had been unable to communicate with her family or police while sedated in the intensive care unit.

    The anchor's death came only a day after a doctor said he was encouraged by her recovery.

    Dr. Clifton R. Johnson said Friday that swelling in Pressly's brain had gone down since she was hospitalized and that doctors had slowly been reducing her sedative dosages.

    Police have yet to identify a suspect, though detectives have combed the area around Pressly's home in the Heights neighborhood, a mix of bungalows and mansions near the Little Rock Country Club.

    News reports have said detectives found evidence that Pressly's credit card was used Monday at a gas station a few miles from her home.

    Despite the statement in the article that "police said Pressly was apparently not targeted but was attacked during the course of a burglary," it sure sounds like a textbook stalker case to me. Either way, it is an absolutely horrible story. Let's hope the the perpetrator is brought to justice.
