Could be the age of the battery and having the door open to change the latches took the last leg out from under it. Could be a parasitic load drawing from the battery and killing it over night, you will have to do an amp draw test to see if there is a parasitic load drawing power while it's sitting with the key off.

It is also called a parasitic load test, you should be able to Google it and find a how to on it.
