Tiger King Carole Baskin says husband is alive and well after murder theories

Tiger King’s Carole Baskin has revealed that her ex-husband Don Lewis is allegedly "alive and well".

Carole rose to fame on the Netflix series which followed the star and throughout the drama, Carole told the story of how Don left home in 1997 and was never seen again.

Lewis left his Florida home at 6am to make an early morning delivery but he never returned and was declared legally dead five years later.

However, Baskin has since claimed that Don is still alive in Costa Rice – and despite telling people months ago, fans have only just realised.

She spoke to This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Josie Gibson last year about her former partner’s disappearance.

Carole said that "one of the really exciting things" that came out of the show’s second series is a letter that was produced by Homeland Security.

According to Baskin, the letter said that a "special agent in charge with the FBI" had reached out to the Sheriff’s Detective.

By power of deduction, Carole noted: "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."

Carole continued: "And yet, all of this hate has been made about me having something to do with his appearance when Homeland Security has known where he is since at least back then."

Schofield then addressed the wild conspiracies and told Baskin that Don’s children from his first marriage "think she killed him, minced him up and fed him to the tigers".

Baskin’s immediate response was: "I think maybe they should check with Homeland Security who seems to know where he is."

The internet was a flurry with questions but according to TMZ, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, which is in charge of Don’s Missing Person’s case has counteracted Carole’s claims.

They told the publication that they have had no communication with federal officials that could suggest that Lewis has been located.

Don Lewis is still a missing person.

Baskin’s nemesis Joe Exotic popularised the rumour that she had killed her ex-husband after he released a viral song suggesting that she fed him to her tigers.

Joe is currently serving 22 years in prison after he was convicted of hiring someone to kill Carole.
