One year after murders of Golden Grove couple, no arrest has been made and police are still appealing for public’s help


REAL NEWS – Today marks exactly one year since the gruesome double murder of a Golden Grove husband and wife, Pietja (Pia) Visser-Baptiste and Tyrone Baptiste; and no one has yet been arrested for the crime.

Reportedly, the Police are still conducting investigations into the matter, and they, along with Crime Stoppers Antigua & Barbuda, continue to solicit the public’s help in bringing the perpetrators to justice.

The grim discovery was made at the couple’s Golden Grove home on Wednesday, July 20, at about 9:15 a.m.

Reports say that Pia’s body was found in a bedroom while Tyrone’s was found on a sofa in the living room.

Both Pia, 61, and Tyrone, 64, were shot. In addition to multiple gunshot injuries to the couple, the husband also had a knife wound, according to Crime Stoppers.

It was a co-worker who notified the Police after Pia, the former manager of Tropical Adventures, failed to show up for work.

It is believed that the intruders gained entry by using a six-inch block as elevation to gain access to a kitchen window.

However, to this day, it has not been established how many assailants entered the home.

  1. So…put out a substantial reward…and get some real police on this case. This hardworking couple did not kill themselves. Some piece-of-shit-low-life out there knows something and will talk for $$$
    Too many unsolved murders out here!

  2. @really. I feel the disgust in your words, and rightfully so..smdh. Unsolved crime in a tiny arse place like Antigua.
    Criminals are not that smart, and often times leave a lot of clues and evidence behind.

    C’mon commissioner, get these damn crimes solve by whatever legal means necessary and send a strong signal to criminals who are planning similar crimes.

    Don’t tell me Antigua is the place to pull off the perfect crime, this ain’t the Mob for crying out loud.

  3. That’s nothing. Look how long ago Nigel Christian was murdered execution style to cover up government officials’ misconduct. Still no one talking. Yet.
