Sgt. Cassandra Davis says Anne Pressly's medical condition still stops investigators from asking who attacked her and what happened at her home. Pressly's mother found her daughter battered and bleeding early Monday morning in bed at her home.
Davis says investigators have "no idea when we'll be able to talk to her."
Pressly's family issued a statement Thursday saying that the 26-year-old was still in critical condition but was listed as stable.
"The swelling in her brain is beginning to subside," the statement said. "Doctors are encouraged by her progress at this point."
Davis says detectives continue to search for the blunt object used to beat Pressly around her head and upper body. The sergeant wouldn't say what evidence officers recovered from Pressly's home or searches of her neighborhood near the Little Rock Country Club.
Pressly works for KATV, an ABC affiliate. The station has set up a reward fund to find Pressly's attacker. (See related links.)
