Her passion for helping out troubled youth took her to Honduras, but that natural drive for philanthropy came at a great cost. We’re talking about American businesswoman Nedenia Post Dye here who allegedly got murdered in the Bay Islands of the impoverished Central American country last Sunday.
Dye – who was the great-granddaughter of the General Foods founder Marjorie Merriweather Post – owned a luxury spa on the Honduran island of Roatan and had been living there for a decade and a half, according to the local police. She had gotten married to a Honduran man named Lenin Arana – who has been arrested in connection with the murder.
Police strongly suspect that Arana is the killer, and as a result, he is being questioned with a view to presenting him to the authorities for legal prosecution in the coming days.
Dye was reportedly found stabbed multiple times in her room at her own Spa. No more details regarding the unfortunate incident have been given to the press yet.
Honduras is notable around the world for its poor law and order situation. According to a survey conducted by the National Autonomous University, the homicide rate in Honduras is almost 10 times higher than the average global rate.
