She fell asleep and when she finally returned to her own car she opened the door to find June covered in vomit and burns. 

While waiting for paramedics she put her on to the grass to try and cool her down and poured water over her body. 

June was then rushed to hospital with burns on her face, chest and arms while in full cardiac arrest but couldn’t be saved.

A coroner has ruled the death as accidental and June’s mother is being held in police custody while an investigation is carried out. 

Her mother said she used to be addicted to drugs but had gone through rehabilitation and also had a nine-year-old son that was adopted by another family member six years ago.

June’s godmother, Jessica Peterson-Burns, told Fox 11: ‘Our family is broken, we just need prayers and we’re just broken.’

A GoFundMe account set up by June’s father’s cousin has been created to raise funds for the toddler’s funeral.

A post on the page reads: ‘This page is being set up on behalf of my Cousin Garry who has experienced the worse loss ever of his daughter June Love Agosto.

‘June was just 2 years old, full of life and loved by so many.

‘Unfortunately, a tragedy occurred and beautiful June has become an angel in heaven.’

So far $2,545 has been raised of the $5,000 target.
