Very sad news. Anne Pressly has passed away.

Little Rock - KATV Daybreak anchorwoman Anne Pressly, has died at the age of 26, as a result of injuries sustained earlier this week.

The staff of Channel 7 cannot express our grief at the loss of Anne, our dear friend and co-worker.

We thank everyone for their concerns and prayers for Anne and her family over the past week. Please continue to keep her family in your prayers.

The Pressly family released the following statement Saturday evening:

“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.

There is more at the KATV website.

May God comfort Anne Pressly’s family.

Here’s hoping the police find the murderer of Anne Pressly.

Little Rock, Arkansas, once the home of former President Bill Clinton, is riddled with brutal criminals and is not unlike another city that happens to be the home of another Democrat presidential hopeful.

I look forward to the day when my own daughter graduates from law school and can say good bye for once and for all to Little Rock.
