The Chronicle is calling on Queensland Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath to order a coronial inquest into the brutal murder of Toowoomba teen Annette Jane Mason.
Miss Mason's killer, or killers, have roamed free in the community since the shocking and brutal crime in 1989.
The Chronicle is further calling on Ms D'Ath to let a coroner rule on the evidence, not a politician.
Annette's family have waited for more than two decades for justice but it seems finding those responsible for their daughters murder is not a priority for authorities.
If an inquest was ordered there is a very real possibility several people could face criminal charges over Miss Mason's murder.
Furthermore, it will force the people still living in the community who know what happened to Miss Mason to divulge what they know under oath in court.
Miss Mason’s badly beaten and partly naked body was found on November 19, 1989 concealed underneath a doona in the sunroom of a house she shared with two other women at 131 Anzac Ave.
It is believed Miss Mason, 15, was murdered sometime between 5am and 7am before her body was discovered around 2.10pm.
An autopsy revealed Miss Mason died from extensive head injuries and police believe a piece of timber found in the laundry could have been the murder weapon.
The Chronicle is calling on Ms D'Ath to act and ensure a family who has been grieving for more than 20 years receives the closure they are seeking.
