Socialite heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post has been dead for 40 years, and now her great grand-daughter Nedenia Post Dye has been found stabbed to death on a Caribbean island.
The American heiress was believed to have been slain by a local singer named Lenin Roberto Arana, who Fox News reports was trying to kick a drug addiction habit with her help.
The police chief in Roatan, Honduras says that Post’s grand-daughter “was a good woman” and she often worked with those at risk. The suspect is telling reporters he is innocent and that he and the 46-year-old heiress Dye were involved romantically.
With multiple knife wounds to the back of the victim, and the suspect found with blood all over his clothing as he attempted to flee in her car, police have arrested Arana and are holding him for the murder of Marjorie Merriweather Post’s great grand-daugher Nedina.
Nedenia Post Dye may have spent 15 years living on an island where beautiful beaches, luxury resorts and vacation homes populated the area, but she is one heiress who appears to have tried to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. And she possibly paid for her own as a result, unfortunately. And that might, unfortunately, dissuade others with wealth from doing the same thing.
