Police have released CCTV footage relating to their ongoing investigation into the death of a two-year-old girl.
Queensland Police were called to Mackay Base Hospital in West Mackay, about 804km northwest of Brisbane, about 8.30pm on December 29 after the girl was presented unresponsive.
She was subsequently declared dead, sparking the formation of police Operation Uniform Vauxhall.
On Friday, police released security camera vision from inside two businesses in the Mackay locality of Andergrove from the afternoon of Thursday, December 29.
Detectives want to hear from anyone who was in the United Chemist on Oak St between 3.50pm and 4pm.
They also want to speak to anyone who was at the nearby Coles supermarket, also on Oak St, between 4pm and 5.30pm the same day.
“We want to speak to those people because we believe they may have seen something … or had conversations or interactions with the persons depicted in that particular video,” Detective Acting Inspector Chris Eaton told a media conference on Friday.
The two-year-old girl can be seen in the vision strapped to the back of a woman wearing a harness, accompanied by other children as they visit the chemist and Coles.
“We’re treating the death of the child as a suspicious death,” Inspector Eaton said.
“We knew the child was sick prior to her death. Part of our investigation centres around those days leading up to the child’s death and in particular the care provided to the child in those days.”
Anyone with information is urged to make a report to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.
