Killer’s sui­cide bid af­ter see­ing Mylee on CCTV FIEND MOANS CCTV PUSHED HIM ‘OVER EDGE’

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Dan Warburton

A MAN who killed his daugh­ter to spite his ex tried to end his self­pi­ty­ing life af­ter see­ing footage of his eight-year-old vic­tim.

Mon­ster Wil­liam Bing­ham stabbed lit­tle Mylee to take re­venge on her mum.

He ap­par­ently tried to kill him­self in his prison cell dur­ing his trial, which ended with a jail sen­tence of at least 27 years af­ter he was con­victed of mur­der.

Later he whined that see­ing shop CCTV of his daugh­ter alive sent him “over the edge” so he slashed his wrists.

But dad-of-six Billing­ham, 55, sur­vived. And his whinge­ing con­tin­ued with let­ters from jail that claimed his only crime was lov­ing his girl too much. The let­ters show no re­morse for stab­bing Mylee with a kitchen knife. He killed her just hours af­ter be­ing recorded with her on CCTV.

Billing­ham, who signs the let­ters “Love Willy” wrote: “It’s all ex­ag­ger­ated bulls**t but I ex­pected noth­ing less from the sewer rats.

“The so-called re­la­tion­ship was over and done many years ago.

“But I ad­mit I would lie, do and say what­ever it took to keep my time with the girls cos that was all I lived for.

“If it’s pos­si­ble to love your chil­dren too much then I am without a doubt guilty. It is an hor­ren­dous time and the video of my­self sent me over the edge and re­sulted in me hurt­ing my­self. I just wanted to be with her. I hope you un­der­stand I am OK and still have all my fam­ily and friends sup­port­ing me.”

Billing­ham has boasted of how pals at his lo­cal passed a phone around so he could chat to them af­ter they set up a memo­rial gar­den for Mylee, who he killed af­ter her mum Tracey Taun­dry, 34, started a new re­la­tion­ship with a woman.

He also bragged of how his brother Mark, who ap­pears in hit Chan­nel 4 se­ries SAS: Who Dares Wins, had rubbed shoul­ders in the past with Tom Cruise and rock band the Stereo­phon­ics.

In new let­ters Billing­ham wrote: “I’m stressed, tired and emo­tional in here.”

Birm­ing­ham crown court heard how he killed Mylee in Brown­hills, West Mid­lands, in Jan­uary af­ter drag­ging her into his home as she pleaded: “Please Daddy, no Daddy, stop it.”
