Anne Pressly, 26, was discovered by her mother at 4.30am after she failed to respond to a wake-up call for her shift yesterday on Daybreak, the early breakfast show on KATV , a TV station in Arkansas.

Alerted by the TV station, her mother went round to Miss Pressly’s home in Little Rock and found her lying unconscious and bleeding from the head. She had suffered a vicious beating to her upper body with am unknown blunt instrument.

Police say there was no sign of forced entry, but that her purse was missing from the house, so the motive for the attack may have been robbery.
