    Word around town is that her throat was slit. If you saw W. she played Ann Coulter.

    Where in that article does it say she is not expected to live?

    Initial indication is robbery, according to that story. It's an unconscionable act, no matter what the reason. But I hope to hell that it wasn't some retribution for appearing in "W." (I haven't seen the movie). I worry about an escalation to violence from a whipped up, angry mob.

    In all seriousness, I understand the station's entire staff is gathered at the hospital. I don't think anyone is back at the office updating the website.

    Edit: For taste...

    On a very sad thread, I have to admit, I laughed at the website nonsense. Not sure what to make of that.

    Anywho ... that's absolutely insane if someone broke into her home to steal nothing but her purse and then did this to her. Unbelievable someone could do that to another person for what, $50 and some credit cards that will be canceled before they can even be used?

    Hopefully she can pull through this.

    (And agree with TSP ... it doesn't say she isn't expected to live, just that the injuries are life threatening.)

    Probably some whack-job stalker. Wouldn't be the first time something like that has happened to a TV anchor unfortunately.

    Do they have pictures of the "boob squad" on their web site?

    No kidding... I have several friends who work in television and you would be stunned/amazed/frightened at some of the correspondence they get from viewers.

    I hope she pulls through.

    Perhaps Jay knows someone close to the situation.

    No indications of that either.

    There was a murder here about 10 years ago. TV anchor left her apartment door open so her cat could come in and out. Mentally unbalanced neighbor who had a thing for her walked in and stabbed her to death.

    Then there was the woman who worked at a station in Mason City, Iowa who disappeared several years ago. I don't think she's ever been found.
