Nedenia Post Dye, the great-granddaughter of General Foods Corp. heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post, was found stabbed to death on Dec. 22 at her luxury spa resort on the Caribbean island of Roatan.

Authorities have arrested local musician Lenin Roberto Arana for Dye's murder. Roatan police chief Alex Madrid told the Associated Press that Dye had been apparently helping the musician battle drug addiction.

"She was a good woman who worked with young people at risk, drug addicts and alcoholics," Madrid told the AP.

Arana told reporters he was innocent and said that he and the late heiress were romantically involved.

"I'm innocent," Arana, who uses the stage name "The Canary," told local reporters. "Nedenia was like a mother to me. She protected me."

According to Madrid, Arana was apprehended by police while attempting to flee in Dye's car wearing blood-soaked clothes. Authorities say Dye appeared to have been stabbed many times in the back.

Dye, 46, had been overseeing the Baan Suerte luxury spa on the island of Roatan, where she had apparently been living for the past 15 years.

The Santa Monica, Calif.-native who graduated from George Washington University, told an alumni publication of her alma mater that her initial motivation for moving to the exotic Caribbean island was business.

"My friend and I had an idea to start a business," Dye told the alumni magazine. "I wanted to go to Asia but she said 'No, Central America is closer. If (the business) fails, we can swim home.'
