The Wronged Man: Andrew Mallard

Introduced by Western Australia's Attorney-General John Quigley

When Pamela Lawrence was brutally 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 twelve years in jail for a crime he didn't commit.

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.

In this updated episode of Andrew Mallard's story, Australian Story talks to the friends who stood by him until his untimely death last month.
