Four new potential leads in brutal Toowoomba teen murder
A RENEWED push to flush out those responsible for the brutal murder of Toowoomba teen Annette Jean Mason has produced four new potential leads.
The Chronicle, in conjunction with Annette's family, has been behind calls for a coronial inquest to be held into the teen's murder.
Crime Stoppers chief Trevor O'Hara said the organisation had received new information over the past week since the case had been highlighted in the media.
"The callers have nominated potential offenders in this matter," he said.
"The four reports from the public were all made via telephone.
"I think in this matter, callers wanted to explain personally to our operators what they know, instead of just filling out an online form."

Mr O'Hara said the new information had been passed on to the investigating officers.
He said the four leads were particularly detailed.
"Our Crime Stoppers team are experienced in asking questions which can help jog a person's memory of events," he said.
"Police intelligence officers will now investigate the names that were reported before handing that information over to the investigating officers.
"You never know - one of those four leads could hold valuable information for investigators."
Miss Mason's badly beaten and partly naked body was found on November 19, 1989, concealed under 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 about 2.10pm.
No one has ever been charged over her murder.
