In a shocking revelation that has taken the world by surprise, Carole Baskin, the star of the popular Netflix series Tiger King, has announced that her former husband, Don Lewis, who was declared legally dead in 2002 after going missing five years earlier, has been found alive and well.
This news came as a surprise to many, as it was revealed during a TV appearance made by Baskin in 2021. The revelation has left many people wondering how this news went unnoticed for so long and why it wasn’t reported as a major news event.
The series Tiger King, which aired in 2020, followed the strange and bizarre world of big-cat keeper Joseph Maldonado-Passage. During the series, Maldonado-Passage repeatedly accused Baskin of being connected to her former husband’s death, claiming that she had fed Lewis’ body to her own hoard of big cats. Baskin denied these allegations and stated that Homeland Security had been in touch to confirm that they had uncovered Lewis’ whereabouts in Costa Rica.
Baskin went on to express her surprise at the news, stating that she didn’t think Lewis was capable of supporting himself. She revealed that Lewis had taken around a million dollars to Costa Rica and that she had agreed to let him do so in order for him to prove that he could make a living. However, she also stated that the investments he had made were not successful and that only $80,000 remained of the original million dollars.
Despite Baskin’s assertion that the US government is aware that Lewis is alive and living in Costa Rica, he is still legally documented as being dead. He has made no public statement about his situation and has not returned to America. The revelation has left many people questioning the circumstances surrounding Lewis’ disappearance and the events that led to him being declared legally dead.
