Police in Arkansas say they are seeking a specific person in the fatal beating of a television anchorwoman.

A police official says investigators don't know the suspect's name, though a search is under way.

It's been more than a week since 26-year-old Anne Pressly was attacked in her Little Rock home. She died on Saturday. Officials say the attack was random, and unrelated to her job at the city's ABC affiliate.

Pressly's purse was missing the morning of the attack and investigators have said it's possible she was a robbery victim.

While the search for the killer continues, a Little Rock police official is telling city residents to be careful and maintain "a sense of discipline to keep themselves safe."

KATV has established a reward fund for information.

A funeral for Pressly is set for Thursday.
