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.
