Do we all delete our 'Carole Baskin killed her husband' TikTok dances from 2020??

Carole Baskin’s ex-husband husband Don Lewis, was reportedly found alive years ago… and we are only just finding out??

During a November 2021 interview with ITV’s This Morning, Baskin revealed her presumed-dead husband is actually alive and well, living his best life in Costa Rica.

Don went missing in 1997 after marrying Baskin six years earlier and was later legally declared dead in 2002.

In the 2021 interview, Baskin said, “One of the really exciting things that came out of Tiger King 2 is that they produced a letter from Homeland Security.”

Baskin revealed the letter said, “that a special agent in charge with the FBI at Homeland Security reached out to the sheriff’s detective [Jorge] Fernandez, which means this had to have happened after 2002, because Homeland Security wasn’t even around until 2002.

“And they said that my husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica.”

Baskin even shared a screenshot of the alleged letter from the Department of Homeland Security on her blog… back in 2021?!

However, Baskin told The New York Post she was unaware of the alleged revelation until the sequel series was broadcast in November 2021.

“I was not aware of it until ‘TK2’ aired,” Baskin told The Post via email, referencing her Big Cats Rescue blog.

What happened in The Tiger King?

If you need a quick refresher, in the first season of Netflix’s smash-hit Tiger King, producers explored the possibility that Baskin could have been responsible for Don’s disappearance – something she denied.

Authorities never discovered any evidence that indicated Carole killed her husband, but Tiger King aired allegations from Don’s family and Joe Exotic suspecting that she did.

Carole Baskin and Don Lewis founded an animal sanctuary called Wildlife on Easy Street in 1991. They famously raised exotic animals, which included tigers.

And if you’re wondering where Joe Exotic is, he is currently serving a 21-year prison sentence after he was convicted of trying to hire two different men to kill Carole.

We need to apologise to Carole ASAP!
