Annette Mason: Beating Death Of Teenager To Be Re-Examined After 30 Years

The beating death of a Queensland teenager almost 30 years ago is being re-examined.

An inquest into the slaying of Annette Mason begins on Monday and is expected to run for three weeks.

Mason was 15 when she was bludgeoned to death in her family's Toowoomba home in November 1989.

Despite an investigation at the time, including an original inquest with 25 witnesses, the coroner of the time found there was insufficient evidence to establish the identity of Annette's killer.

It was closed subject to "reopening at any stage should further evidence become available".

Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath instructed the coroner to reopen the inquest in 2016.

Ms D'Ath said it was "in the interests of justice" the circumstances surrounding Annette's death be re-examined.
