If you were a fan of tiger King, then you know that one of the wildest of the 145,000 insane storylines on the whole show, was…
What the hell happened to Carole Baskin’s ex-husband Don Lewis?
There was the wild rumor that she killed Don herself, and fed him to the tigers at her Big Cat Rescue park. I know, it sounds insane, but Carole Baskin is absolutely nuts herself so nothing was too far fetched.
Joe Exotic even made a song and music video based off her feeding him to the tigers.
There was another rumor that he fled to a different country, and completely wiped away all evidence of his existence.
It may have been the biggest talk across the country besides COVID back in 2020, and everyone was genuinely curious.
However, what if I told you that the proof of Don Lewis still being alive has already been confirmed? Over a year ago.
That’s right, back in November of 2021, 61-year-old Baskin admitted in an interview with ITV’s This morning talk show, that Don Lewis, who was declared legally dead back in 2002 after disappearing a few years prior, is actually alive and doing fine.
She said that the Department of Homeland Security has been in touch with Lewis since the show:
“One of the really exciting things that came out of ‘Tiger King 2’ is that they produced a letter from Homeland Security and it says that a special agent in charge with the FBI at Homeland Security reached out to the sheriff’s detective George Fernandez, which means this had to have happened after 2002, because Homeland Security wasn’t even around until 2002.”
And on top of that, she said that he’s been hanging out in Costa Rica:

Lewis has yet to make any public statements about the rumors, though.
Somehow, this massive news slipped right under our nose, and needless to say, a ton of people are still in shock:
