Five years ago she was a seemingly ordinary housewife, living in a modest house on a suburban street.
Tonight, British mother-of-two Lindsay Sandiford was languishing in a Bali jail cell after being arrested for allegedly smuggling £1.6million of cocaine.
She has already faced the shame of being paraded before the media, bowing her head and hiding her tears with her hands.
But the 56-year-old single mother's eventual fate could be far worse. Cocaine smuggling on such a scale - police claim they caught her with 4.7kg of the Class A drug - is punishable by death by firing squad.
Back on the street that she once called home in the genteel town of Cheltenham, her former neighbors did not seem entirely surprised.
One branded her the 'neighbor from hell' while others said her two boys, both now adults, were out-of-control.
A 63-year-old man who lived next door to the £275,000 detached property where once she lived said she was evicted around five years ago for allegedly failing to pay rent.
He said: 'She gives off the impression that she's a well-to-do middle-aged woman, but she's not at all. She was a real neighbour from hell.'
The man claimed she used to have men coming and going from her house at all hours of the night, and the police were regular visitors because she had trouble keeping her two boys in school.
