TRUTH !!
It was called inheritance powder because people often used it to dispatch a wealthy old
relative and "claim" their inheritance early. Since it was used as a rat poison and
household cleaning agent, arsenic was readily available over the counter. Undetectable
when mixed with food, it was also difficult to pinpoint as the cause of death.
Fortunately, tests have been developed to help prosecutors better identify arsenic
poisoning.
