A minor point, and not important now, but she was not sleeping peacefully when the police knocked/pounded on the door. She died in her apartment's hallway. She and Walker, the boyfriend--who had no history of drug offenses--were watching a movie so it's possible they couldn't hear the police answer them when they called out "Who is it?" According to recordings of police interviews with Walker:Ask whoever lays in the bed next to you if they would be able to “sleep peacefully” after you unload a mag in your bedroom.
I asked my wife, and her exact words were “hell no, you could wake me from the dead when you shoot in the back yard”
'Taylor yelled again "at the top of her lungs," asking who it was, Walker said in the recording. He said he was asking, too.
They got out of bed and were going toward the door when it “comes off its hinges.” Walker fired one shot, unable to see who he was shooting at, he told police.'
