Doncaster St in Corrimal is the type of leafy neighbourhood where everybody knows if something is even slightly out of the ordinary.So for the past few days, chatter had been circulating about 31-year-old Katie Foreman after the promising young solicitor expressed fears about a possible prowler near her home.Neighbourhood gossip gave way to grief yesterday morning when residents woke to a crash, the sound of a man and woman laughing and the sight of flames leaping from the top floor of Ms Foreman's home.Ms Foreman never made it out of the blaze and a once peaceful suburban street is now engulfed in fear and sadness.VIDEO FOOTAGE OF THE FIRE: The two-storey brick and weatherboard home remained a crime scene last night, sealed off as forensic investigators continued the search for answers into how and why Ms Foreman died.As they carried out the grim task, friends and relatives visited the scene, visibly distraught.Three female family members arrived mid-morning and wandered the street for several minutes in a state of shock before talking to police.The women left when a vehicle arrived to take Ms Foreman's body at 10.45am.Detectives, with a specially trained sniffer dog, spent the rest of the day and most of the night removing at least five evidence bags.Detectives were also handed a video of the fire captured by neighbours who were woken by a loud noise and the sound of a man and woman laughing at 2.30am."They got into a car, slammed the door and took off down the street and then we saw [Ms Foreman's] house was on fire," said one resident, who did not wish to be named."Those two who were laughing must have seen the fire, they must have."And if they did see it, why would you laugh about something like that and just drive away?"Neighbours raced to the front of Ms Foreman's house, where they found the top floor engulfed in flames, the front door wide open and Ms Foreman's silver Commodore sedan still parked in the driveway.Fire and Rescue NSW arrived and extinguished the blaze and during a search with Wollongong Police, found Ms Foreman's body, which was believed to have been in the bedroom.Ms Foreman was regarded in the legal fraternity as a very competent criminal lawyer and family law specialist with a bright future. She graduated from the University of Wollongong in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Law and Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
