‘Little angel’: Tributes flood in for ‘darling’ girl

Tributes have flooded in to honour the life of beautiful Townsville girl, Rylee Rose Black, who died after allegedly being left in a hot car.

The blonde-haired, smiley three-year-old was found dead inside her mother, Laura Black's, Toyota Prado just before 3pm on Friday.

Black and her boyfriend, Aaron Hill, have been charged with manslaughter over the girl's death.

Police will allege Rylee Rose was left inside the hot car for several hours, and was found dead when her mother emerged from a Burdell home just before school pick-up.

Black and Hill drove Rylee Rose to Townsville University Hospital after discovering her body, and a nurse alerted police.

Her three sisters are now in the care of their father.

Heartbroken mourners have shared scores of social media tributes honouring the little girl.

"RIP little darling," Chris McLachlan said.

"Rest in peace little one - thoughts and prayers are with the dad and siblings," Travis Gowley said.

"Rest in paradise little angel," Melissa Crowley said.

"Heart breaking, that poor darling left on her own in her final stages. Fly high little one. May you be with the angels," Alexandria Leigh Pitt said.
