When Pamela Lawrence was murdered in her Perth shop in 1994, police focused their investigation around one suspect, Andrew Mallard.
He quickly became the victim of a miscarriage of justice, spending 12 years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.
Andrew Mallard’s family fought successfully to release him, enlisting then WA Shadow Attorney-General John Quigley and journalist Colleen Egan who uncovered a trail of deception and police misconduct.
ABC’s Australian Story talks to the friends who stood by him until his untimely death in April 2019.

Ricky Jackson – who at one stage faced the death penalty – calmly stands before looking skywards and hugging his legal team
This is the humbling moment a man who spent 39 years in jail after being wrongly convicted of murder is set free.
Ricky Jackson, 57, appears to mouth ’thank you’ after being cleared, looks to the heavens, and then gratefully embraces his legal team before being led from the court room.
He was convicted along with two others for the 1975 murder of Harold Franks, a Cleveland-area money order salesman, after 12-year-old Eddie Vernon testified he saw the attack,
according to court documents.
However, when Vernon – now 53 – recanted his evidence and told authorities he had never actually witnessed the crime.
With no other evidence linking Jackson to the killing, in March lawyers for the Ohio Innocence Project filed a motion for a new trial after.
Vernon had told a pastor he was on a school bus at the time of the murder, which other witnesses confirmed.
Jackson is the longest-held U.S. prisoner to be exonerated, an lawyer for the Ohio Innocence Project said.
The two other men convicted alongside him, brothers Ronnie and Wiley Bridgeman, have also filed for a new trial.
Ronnie Bridgeman was released in 2003, but his brother remains in prison.
Jackson was originally sentenced to death but that sentence was vacated due to a paperwork error.
The Bridgemans remained on death row until Ohio declared the death penalty unconstitutional in

Three men who served 36 years in a Maryland prison were freed Monday after new evidence exonerated them in the killing of a Baltimore teen in 1983.
Alfred Chestnut, Ransom Watkins and Andrew Stewart were arrested on Thanksgiving and accused of killing 14-year-old Dewitt Duckett in the hallway of Harlem Park Junior High School over his Georgetown jacket.
Baltimore States’ Attorney Marilyn Mosby said that a re-investigation produced new evidence and testimony from witnesses that proved they were innocent.

With the US continuing to execute prisoners, Fault Lines presenter Josh Rushing looks at the politics driving capital punishment in the US.
Eighty per cent of the executions the US carries out occur in a handful of states in the South – where it is popular for politicians to run “tough on crime” campaigns.
Fault Lines travels to Oklahoma — which executes more prisoners per capita than any other state in the country. Josh Rushing gained rare access to Oklahoma’s death row and the prisoners there.
But across the US, there is a slow, but significant shift in America’s attitude towards the death penalty.
DNA testing and, in some states, a willingness by judges and prosecutors to revisit old capital cases have led to many well-publicised exonerations of death row inmates.
Since 1973 over 130 innocent people have been released from death row after establishing their innocence. The possibility of getting it wrong may have made juries nervous to hand out the death penalty … preferring life without parole.
And while the US is still very much pro-death for capital offences, that support has dropped to 65 per cent in 2006, down from 80 per cent in 1994.
