Early investigations suggest the boy was in the locked vehicle for most of the day, police said.
Queensland is currently facing a heat wave that hit Townsville at 32.8 ° C on Friday.
The couple was due to appear in Townsville Magistrates Court on Saturday, but Ms. Black’s attorney moved to adjourn the case until December 14, the Townsville Bulletin reported.
Mr. Hill is not Rylee’s biological father.
Ms. Black is now seeking legal advice. Both have been returned and remain in custody.
Investigators said police did not know the couple.
Friends and family took to Facebook to support the couple.
A friend described Mr. Hill, an avid hog hunter who works as a drill in a Mount Isa mine, as “grandfather.”
On social media, the blue-eyed blonde girl was recognized on social media.
“RIP honey,” wrote one person.
Others said: “The thoughts and prayers are with the Father and the brothers” and “Rest in heaven, little angel.”
Another wrote: ‘Rest in peace, darling. I’m so sorry this happened to you.
“Heartbroken, this poor fellow was left alone in his final stages. Fly baby May you be with the angels, “said a user of social networks.
Sergeant Major Dave Miles, a detective with the Townsville Child Protection and Investigation Unit, said police are still investigating a number of possible scenarios, adding that the death was “a very preventable and unfortunate tragedy.”
“Cars heat up very quickly and the human body is sensitive to large changes in temperature,” he said.
“The best advice we can give is not to allow children or pets to enter vehicles when they are parked, without ventilation, without air conditioning, especially in the tropics.”
The boy’s brothers and sisters are now cared for by his biological father.
This is the third such incident in Queensland in a year.
A three-year-old boy died in February after being deposed in a Cairns kindergarten.
In November 2019, Brisbane’s mother, Kerri-Ann Conley, was charged with murder after her 1 and 2-year-old daughters were killed in a similar incident.
More than 5,000 children are rescued each year in Australia after being abandoned in a car, according to Kidsafe.
Babies left in hot vehicles are at risk of heat stroke, dehydration, suffocation, organ damage, and possible death.
The interior of a car can reach a maximum of 75 degrees, regardless of whether the vehicle is in the sun or in the shade.
