Brutally Beaten Anchor Has Been Too Critically Injured to Talk to Police

A Little Rock police spokeswoman says detectives still haven't been able to speak with a television anchorwoman critically injured in an attack earlier this week.

Sgt. Cassandra Davis says Anne Pressly's medical condition still stops investigators from asking who attacked her and what happened at her home.

Pressly's mother found the anchor with Little Rock ABC affiliate KATV battered and bleeding early Monday morning in bed at her home.

Pressly's family issued a statement Thursday saying that the 26-year-old was still in critical condition but was listed as stable.

"The swelling in her brain is beginning to subside," the statement said. "Doctors are encouraged by her progress at this point."

Davis said investigators have "no idea when we'll be able to talk to her."

Detectives continue to search for the blunt object used to beat Pressly around her head and upper body. The sergeant declined to discuss what evidence officers recovered from Pressly's home or in searches of her neighborhood near the Little Rock Country Club.
