Oliver Stone has paid tribute to the murdered news anchor who made a cameo appearance in his latest movie W.
Anne Pressly, 26, was found unconscious in bed on 20 October (08) with severe head and body wounds. She failed to recover from the horrific injuries and was declared dead at St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center in Arkansas on Saturday 25 October.
Her as-yet-unsolved murder came just a week after the release of Stone's George W. Bush biopic, in which she plays a news reporter.
Stone says of the tragic journalist, "We found her to be a vibrant source of energy, life and kindness. In the time she had, she filled it with a big soul."
