    Annette Mason cold case: New inquest into murder of Toowoomba teenager

    'The family of murdered Toowoomba teenager Annette Mason is hopeful the reopening of an inquest into her death will lead to the conviction of her killer.

    Queensland Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath announced on Monday there would be another inquest, after months of petitioning by the Mason family and supporters.

    The 15-year-old's partly naked body was found bludgeoned to death in the bedroom of her Anzac Avenue home in November 1989.

    She was murdered after a night out sneaking into pubs and was last seen alive that morning at about 3:30am when she arrived home in a taxi.

    It was her first week living out of home and she had been share-housing with other women.

    No-one was ever charged and an inquest in 1991 found there was insufficient evidence to find anyone responsible, despite hearing from 25 witnesses.'

    I find it amazing that police have been so fixated on their preferred perp, that this has been allowed to drag on for 27 years!

    The inquest will hopefully make a decision based on ALL the reports made over the years! Crimestoppers reports have been simply ignored

    About time! Let's hope this leads to a conviction. Way overdue. I think in this case the police may have May a few blunders over the years. Will be watching how it pans out.
