While most of the city slept, the killer went up the stairs to the third floor and opened the wrong door.
Brooke Miles was asleep when she heard footsteps inside her downtown Edmonton apartment.
"I got really freaked out and screamed," she said, "and hit him with the umbrella and he went running out."
However, she didn't call police. And the man simply went down the hall and opened another door.
When police arrived about a day and a half later, inside that second apartment they found one of the most horrible crime scenes in the city's recent history.
"The scene is probably one of the most horrific I've seen in my career as a police officer," Staff Sgt. Bill Clark said Wednesday. "And I've been to a few hundred murder scenes. It was gruesome what was done to her."
Whatever was done in that apartment early Monday, Miles and her boyfriend heard some of it.
Later, when the worst of the noise was over, Miles crept down the hall and put her head against the door.

"It was a little bit of moaning," she said, describing what she heard. "Like her last breaths or something. It was like she wasn't screaming anymore. It was like she was dying."
Still, no one called police.
Clark said he had no explanation for why people who lived in that walk-up building near 106th Avenue and 104th Street didn't dial 911 that morning.
"[Miles] confronted an intruder in her home," he said. "She actually went after him. They could have called the police then, when someone's basically broken in. Or they could have called police when they heard the other noises coming from the other apartment suite. So there were a couple of opportunities there. Unfortunately it didn't happen.
"There's a possibility, if police had been called, this might not have happened."
