Police reveal where Rylee Rose was meant to be on last day

A THREE-year-old girl who died after allegedly being left in a hot car was not meant to be at day care the day she died, detectives say.

Townsville Child Protection and Investigation Unit are investigating Rylee Rose Black's untimely death, with its latest line of inquiry taking them to the movements her mother, Laura Peverill, and boyfriend, Aaron Hill took on November 27.

Rylee was found lifeless in the back seat of her mother's Toyota Prado about 2.45pm, after allegedly being left in the hot car for about five hours.

Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Miles said investigations allege that Rylee was not meant to be at her daycare the day she died, and was meant to be in the care of her mum.

The clarification comes after her day care centre sent out an alert to parents the morning Rylee died, reminding them to let the centre know if their child was not coming in.

Peverill and Hill, who have been charged with Rylee Rose's manslaughter, were granted bail on Monday after a court heard that the pair were allegedly watching Shameless inside their Burdell home while the girl died inside the hot car.

They had allegedly dropped Peverill's other daughters off at school that morning, stopped in at the shops, and arrived home about 9.50am.

Police prosecutor Tasman Murphy said Rylee's whereabouts was allegedly never mentioned between the pair.

Rylee wasn't found until they were driving to school pick-up, but it was too late.

"They turned around and seen the victim child's head slumped over … removed her from her booster seat to attempt CPR," Mr Murphy said.

The movements of Rylee, Peverill and Hill are being put under the microscope by police, who are calling for dashcam footage in certain routes taken that day.
