What has left Billingham's friends, family and neighbors reeling is that just minutes after posting the photo of Mylee, whom Billingham reportedly doted on and lovingly called "moo", authorities say the young girl was stabbed to death, The Sun reported.
Mylee suffered severe knife wounds and was rushed to hospital at around 21:15 on Saturday 20 January.
Mr Nicholls said in a statement: 'What can I say, we're all numb, we're all in shock. Everyone at the school is completely devastated.
The head teacher of St James Primary in Brownhills, where Mylee was a pupil, paid tribute to her on Monday saying her smile "lit up the room".
Forensic teams have started to examine the Brownhills bungalow where an eight-year-old was found stabbed.
'She took a full part in school life, particularly enjoying singing and performing. 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 at this hard time.
The 54-year-old man taken to hospital is now in a stable condition and will be questioned "in due course" over the incident in Valley View, a residential street on the edge of the town.
One note read: "Mylee, our superstar dancer, you will be the brightest star shining in the sky tonight".
