Authorities emphasized there is just one suspect in the Anne Pressly case in a letter sent out Tuesday to members of the media from the Little Rock Police Department.

Police Chief Stuart Thomas, in a carefully worded statement, also said that the department would not be addressing any rumors that have been cropping up about Pressly.

From the beginning, authorities have remained tight-lipped about information in the case. Pressly, an anchor for KATV, was found beaten in her home on Oct. 20. She died five days later without regaining consciousness.

A suspect, Curtis Lavonne Vance, was revealed the day before Thanksgiving and a tip provided his Little Rock location. He was arrested later that night without incident.

So far, Little Rock police have insisted that Pressly's brutal attack came during a home invasion and robbery. Through DNA evidence, it was found that Vance was a suspect in that case as well as a rape in Marianna.
