— The home where an Arkansas television anchorwoman was attacked is being demolished.

A large back hoe sat on top of the rubble Monday of the small home where Anne Pressly, a former anchorwoman at Little Rock television station KATV, once lived.

All that remains standing is a light post with the home street address, 4910, on it.

Dump trucks pulled up to begin loading debris from the home and take it away.

On Oct. 20, Pressly's mother found her badly beaten inside the home. Pressly died five days later at a Little Rock hospital having never regained consciousness.

The owners of the home could not be reached for comment. City officials say there was no demolition permit to destroy the home.

This is ridiculous. Have to have a permit to build and a permit to tear down, another way to get a $$ Why should the city have anything to say if the owner wants to get rid of it.
