    This is the first time I hear this idiom. I can't actually associate being innocent to butter not melting in one's mouth.

    I thought if a person is not greedy, even if you put butter in his mouth (yuck)
    it wouldn't melt.

    Another thought, he is such a cold (unfriendly) person, even if you put butter in his mouth it wouldn't melt.

    And I was all wrong...

    It is about appearances. Reread the explanations.
