Mylee Billingham case 'intense', police chief says

Mylee Billingham case 'intense', police chief says

At 9.30pm, police arrived at his home in Brownhills, West Midlands, to find the young Ed Sheeran fan stabbed.

A 54-year-old man, with a stab wound to his stomach, was arrested in connection with the incident.

He said: "I just offered her a warm drink because it was a bitterly cold night".

Mr Billingham - whose brother Mark is an instructor on the Channel 4 TV show SAS: Who Dares Wins and has acted as a bodyguard for Brad Pitt - was described as a "doting father".

The decorated war hero spent 27 years in the SAS, got an MBE for leading the mission in Iraq to rescue a Brit hostage and won the Queen's Commendation for Bravery after capturing an IRA sniper by using himself as bait.

Friends had said that he had just been made redundant from a factory job.

Mark Billingham has appealed for the family's privacy to be respected at what is obviously a devastating time.

"Everyone at the school is completely devastated", said Andy Nicholls. "There will be no further statement at this time".

"Mylee was dearly loved by us all, her smile lit up the room, in fact, it never left her face". Mylee's mother, with whom the 54-year-old was in seperated, had liked the post, but an hour later the neighbors heard the woman screaming outside the house, "They stabbed my baby", and as they were anxious they called the police.

"She took a full part in school life, particularly enjoying singing and performing".

The results of a post-mortem which took place to discover what injuries Mylee suffered before she died are expected to be announced later today. So it likely surprised no one when another photo was posted Saturday evening of the girl sitting on top of a bed and eating pizza in her pajamas. "Our hearts go out to her family". The police are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident.

Her father, Bill Billingham, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder on the same day, shortly after posting a picture of his daughter on his Facebook page.

Anyone with information is urged to call 101.
