In my humble opinion, I think your alternator/voltage regulator failed first putting 25 plus volts across your battery and cooking it. If it started in the morning when temp was in the 20's, then battery was ok then. At some point that day the voltage regulator (part of the alternator) failed and cooked the battery. This happened to my 1995 Jeep Wrangler battery.
