TV reporter Anne Pressly dies of attack injuries

Anne Pressly, the TV reporter from Little Rock who was beaten and stabbed in her bed by person or persons unknown earlier this week, has died of her injuries.

Her family won't release details, and police have not made an arrest in the mysterious attack on the woman best known for portraying a conservative TV pundit in Oliver Stone's George Bush biopic, W., and for an ambush interview with Vice President Dick Cheney.

Anne was just 26. Our readers had sent get well wishes to her Facebook page.

Her parents released this statement a little while ago:

"We are profoundly saddened to tell you that our dear Anne has lost her struggle for life. It was our hope, as was yours, that Anne would overcome the injuries inflicted upon her in the brutal attack at her home. We were with her in her last moments, and although our hearts are broken, we are at the same time comforted by our faith knowing that Anne is now with our Heavenly Father.

"The outpouring of compassion we have received is truly a testament to the way in which Anne has touched so many people in a positive way. Thank you for your prayers and your many acts of kindness. We are grateful for the wonderful care Anne received from her doctors, nurses and others at St. Vincent.

"Our lives will not be the same without her. We ask that you continue to pray for us as we struggle to move forward without our dear sweet daughter. We also ask that you give us the privacy we need at this very difficult time."

Guy and Patti Cannady

The parents of Anne Pressly
