Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
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.

Any loose contacts, short circuits, whatever.
To be more precise on your search, you will need a strong Amperometer. What you need to do is, Unscrew the + cable of your battery, connect it to one connector of the Amp/meter, and the other to the + of the battery. That way all escaping current will be seen through the meter. Switch off the car, and see if you have any current. If you see even the least, start removing fuses, one by one, until you get zero indication. When that happens, ( at least I hope it should, If there is no other damage) Mark the circuit, (fuse box cap should have written the circuit for which the fuse is dedicated), and check that on further.
I understand that this is too much time wasting procedure, but you will not have to take the car apart to check every single wire.
Electrical problems are like that.
