You must first be certain that what you have is the original (and not a copy) of the Will and that this is the LAST version of the person's Will. The Will usually appoints an executor who is responsible for carrying out what the Will sets out. The Will should be given to the executor(s) along with the death certificate and all the information you can find relating to the persons bank accounts, shares and property holdings (all that the deceased owned). The executor(s) will then prove the Will in a court of probate and once that has been done and any outstanding taxes and debts have been settled, they will distribute the estate (the dead persons property) as the Will instructed.

You don't. You either need to contact the deceased person's lawyers and ask if they hold a will made by that person, or you search the person's belongings (including any safe-deposit boxes) in the hope of finding either a will, or a mention of one having been made and entrusted to a particular party. People who make wills usually, but not always, inform the person or persons the will appoints as executor(s) if they would be willing to be executor, so that can often give you a starting point. Ask the deceased person's friends, relatives or colleagues.

The persons wishing to have the POA invalidated must follow the prescribed legal procedure according to the laws of the state in which the POA was granted.

Not suicide.
