After stench complaints from the neighbors, the home of pathological hoarder Marta Santiago, who was ordered by the court to vacate the premises in a few days, helped by one daughter, it's searched. Nick's shoes become evidence by stepping into a terribly decomposing corpse, later identified as the missing other daughter. After everything is thoroughly searched, more remains are found while the team and a psychologist look into the dysfunctional family, which also includes son Julian Santiago. Written by
Did You Know?
It is said that the victims died of arsenic poisoning, and eventually the source of the arsenic (rat poison) was found in the house.
However, on the cans of poison it says "brodifacoum".
Brodifacoum is an organic compound devoid of arsenic, related to naturally occurring coumarin and its semi-synthetic derivatives like warfarin, which are more or less potent anticoagulants.
Arsenic is a metalloid element that can be found in elemental form, alloys, and organic or inorganic compounds, in a variety of industries and uses, and its main mode of causing poisoning in the body is inhibition of ATP synthesis. See more
