What causes battery to run down over night

Welll then you have a wiring problem or a dead short in the electrical system. You will have to do some research and let us know more info before anyone can help. We just cannot guess friend.
But considering you said it was a "new Battery" that knocks out one possibility of a "dead cell" in the battery.

2006 liberty new battery alternator works when sets over night battery goes dead put a kill switch on and still goes dead ?

put kill where? at battery post, and is just a switch,
not those dynamic battery drop relays?
if the battery goes dead with the neg. lug pulled the battery is bad.
end of life , battery.
the lug pull never lies.... ever.
if stays ok now this is called battery phantom drain.
(or aka. dark currents)

finding cause takes an ammeter. any,
here is all ways to find a drain.

My brand new battery is dead every morning. but a I can hear the alternator turn on. THere is a wire coming off the Hot terminal of the battery that is pulling a lot of juice. Im looking for a diagram

Large wire is possible hot wire to altenator. Should have B+ voltage at all times. Need to do an amperage draw test and start eliminating sub systems to determine root cause. Also would like to point out a new battery does not mean defective free. would load test to ensure no dead cells first.

Dead Battery

I would have the battery checked for a dead cell and acid level, also, if you have a meter that will measure amps, disconnect the battery and install the meter in line with the main power lead and see what leakage current there is, if none, its battery, if there is leakage, there is a problem on your vehicle which needs resolving

Alt is warm after sitting all night and battery is dead

If the ALT is warm. it may be shorted out and that would certainly cause the battery to be dead. Thats good that you found that, not many people would think to feel the Alternator.

I have a similar problem - battery loses charge

No , that doesn't draw enough amps to cause a dead battery . How long does it take for the battery to go dead ? Over night ,couple of day's ? . Your vehicle has a number of control modules on board ,one of these mite not be powering down when it's suppose to . Checking for a parasitic drain with a volt meter is the way to find out what's staying on . There are a couple of different way's to do this .
