“The doors in the hallway had been left shut after mother’s death. There were approximately a dozen doors—six on one side of the hallway, six on the other. I opened the doors as I passed, putting my hands out and twisting the knobs just enough for the locks to unlatch. I did not bother looking into the rooms once they were open. I opened them and walked on. Instead of unlocking all the doors on one side of the hallway, then all the doors on the other, I moved from side to side, opening one door on one side, another door on the other side, a second door on the first side, a second door on the second side.”
