He spent more than a decade in jail before his conviction was quashed in the High Court in 2005, which saw him to be released the following year.

WA Attorney-General John Quigley and journalist Colleen Egan, who played an integral role in overturning Mr Mallard's conviction, have recalled their shock to the news of his recent death.

'He had called them just the night before and said he was getting married, that he'd met a girl and that he was totally in love. They are obviously very devastated. Grace (his mother) is 92 years old now,' Ms Egan told ABC's Australian Story.

Mr Quigley described him as gentle man and honest person.

'I can't tell the feeling of grief that washed over me. I held that man in my arms in prison and promised I'd never leave him. I felt just a little bit of me die when I heard this news,' he said.

'I still get abuse from certain members of the public. I still get scoffed at. People don't know the full story. They think I'm some sort of psycho, some sort of mentally ill patient.

Pamela Lawrence, a business owner in Mosman Park, Perth, was attacked at her jewellery shop on the afternoon of Monday, 23 May 1994.

She was attacked sometime between 3pm and 6pm and died in an ambulance at 7pm.

Mr Mallard quickly became a suspect because a witness saw a man matching his description outside the shop.

He had been released from police custody earlier that day after being arrested for breaking into his his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend's apartment and was seen arriving in Mosman Park in a taxi at around 5pm.

Mallard had a history of mental illness but no history of violence. There was also no weapon, blood or DNA connecting him to the case.

Two key pieces of evidence led to his conviction – the first was police notes from interviews with Mallard where it was claimed Mallard had confessed.

The second was 12 minutes of an 11-hour interview where Mallard was filmed speculating how Ms Lawrence may have been killed.

'If Pamela Lawrence was locking the store up, maybe she came in through the back way, the front door was already locked… Maybe she left the key in the back door and that's why he had easy access, and that's why she didn't hear him until he was… in the store,' he told police.

Mallard spent 12 years of his life sentence at Casuarina Prison in Perth before he was released in 2006.

Months later a cold-case review found a palm print linking English backpacker Simon Rochford to the crime scene.

He had four years left on his sentence when he was questioned by police in relation to mother-of-two Ms Lawrence's death.

A week later he committed suicide in a West Australian prison after being publicly named as the new suspect for Ms Lawrence's murder.

The following year, in 2007, a Corruption and Crime Commission inquiry found that police had withheld crucial information from Mallard's defence team, including details of an undercover operation.

It also emerged that two police officers had caused witnesses to alter their statements.

Mallard was granted a $3.25million compensation payment for his time behind bars after lengthy negations with the state government in 2009.

He later moved to the United Kingdom, while also spending time in America.
