The pair – who ran a tour guide company called Tropical Adventures Antigua in the Caribbean – were found with gunshot wounds on Wednesday.
Police say Tyrone had also been stabbed.
Tyrone is understood to have grown up in Leicester before moving to the island with his Dutch-born wife Pia.
According to local media, a robbery is the suspected motive behind the alleged murders.
Pia’s colleagues discovered the couple dead at their home after going to check on her when she didn’t show up for work, Real News Antigua reports.
According to the outlet, neighbours heard what they believed to be gunshots in the early hours.
Tropical Adventures Antigua shared a tribute to Pia on social media, hailing her as an “inspiration”.
It read: “We are saddened to announce the passing of Mrs Pia Baptiste, the General Manager of Tropical Adventures.
“Pia has been associated with Tropical Adventures for nearly 30 years and was the rock and foundation that our company was built upon.
“Our condolences and deepest sympathies go out to her children and her entire family in Antigua and abroad. May Pia and her husband Tyrone rest in peace. Amen.”
