Black-on-white crime: The great-granddaughter of General Foods founder and heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post has been found slain at her luxury spa resort on the Caribbean island of Roatan, Honduras police have said
Roatan police chief Alex Madrid said that Nedenia Post Dye, 46, was found stabbed in her room on December 22. He said that police had arrested a local singer whom Dye was helping quit drugs. The black suspect, Lenin Roberto Arana, 25, told police that he and Dye had been romantically involved, Madrid said. Madrid said that Arana had been captured wearing blood-soaked clothing as he tried to flee in Dye's car. Police said that Dye appeared to have been stabbed many times in the back. Madrid said that Dye was murdered by Lenin Roberto Arana Carlos, also known as the musician Canario, with whom she was in a romantic relationship. Police believe that she was a victim of domestic violence. The black man killed her because he wanted to get crack cocaine. He has been charged with her murder.
