The new witness in the Coronado mansion deaths -- who is claiming they heard a "scream for help" hours before cops said Rebecca Zahau died -- attempted to report the information to police twice but was "blown off," RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

As we previously revealed, the informant, whose identity has not been released, contacted Zahau's anguished family on Wednesday and provided them with sensational information that could blow the suicide theory to pieces.

According to the witness, they heard screams from inside the Coronado, Calif., mansion at 11 p.m.

"The witness went to law enforcement not once, but twice, but was blown off," a source close to the Zahau family told RadarOnline.com. "This witness is credible and their information has been verified, so one is left to wonder why police did not listen to this individual. The witness' information contradicts the theory released by the sheriff's department and questions the timeline, as police claimed. We are left asking, why was this person not taken seriously?"

It's not known if the witness approached the San Diego County Sheriff or Coronado Police; both departments worked on the investigation.

Cops concluded Zahau, 32, killed herself at 3 a.m. after receiving a voicemail from her pharmaceutical tycoon boyfriend, Jonah Shacknai, 54, informing her his son Max, 6, was going to die.

Max suffered grave injuries from a fall while under Rebecca’s care.
