Since the teenage girl’s murder, Albertson has been mourning her loss on his Facebook page through heartfelt posts, including information about service arrangements for Millsap.

“In complete denial. I can’t believe such a thing could’ve happened to such an innocent girl in this town,” Albertson wrote on July 26.

“I thank you all for the prayers and want to let you all know they mean the world to us. I’ll never forget you, April. I love you.”

As Radar previously reported, Millsap was savagely beaten while walking on a local hiking trail in Armada, Mich. — a town with a population of just 1,729 — with her dog Penny in tow.

The canine was guarding the teen’s body when runners found her, barking to get their attention.
