Turns out, Tiger King star Carole Baskin’s dead husband might not be dead after all.

On August 19, 1997, Florida millionaire Don Lewis was reported missing. When he went missing, he was married to Carole Baskin and living in Tampa, Florida. On August 19, 2002, Don Lewis was declared dead because he had still not been located.

Now, no one really knew what happened to Don Lewis or if he was really dead. But, after Tiger King was released on Netflix, most of the Internet assumed Carloe Baskin killed her husband and fed his body to tigers. The Internet was so sure her husband was dead by Carole’s hands that a song went viral detailing how the world believed the Tiger King star killed her husband.

In the past 24 hours, however, shocking news has come out that Carole Baskin’s dead husband was not so dead after all.

Carole Baskin’s dead husband found alive

Turns out, Carole Baskin admitted during an interview with ITV’s This Morning talk show back in November of 2021 that her ex-husband (who was declared legally dead) was actually found alive and was doing well. Speaking to The New York Post, Carole clarified that she had no idea her ex-husband was alive until after Tiger King 2 was released.

Within the interview (that the entire world apparently overlooked when it happened), Carole Baskin explains that the Department of Homeland Security had been in touch with her ex-husband after he was located.

Baskin explained: “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 [Jorge] Fernandez, which means this had to have happened after 2002, because Homeland Security wasn’t even around until 2002.”

They said my husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica. And yet all of this drama has been made about me having something to do with his disappearance, when Homeland Security has known where he is.

Carole Baskin proceeded to explain that she wasn’t sure how they located her ex-husband in Costa Rica or how they knew he was alive. She, however, was glad to hear he was alive and doing well. Admittedly, she wasn’t sure Don Lewis would be capable of supporting himself.

To date, her ex-husband has not made any sort of public statement confirming he is alive or why he disappeared in the first place.

Unsurprisingly, many parts of the Internet are still skeptical to believe Don Lewis is actually alive as he’s never come out of the woodwork to confirm this himself.

Do you think Carole Baskin’s dead husband is actually alive and in Costa Rica? Let us know in the comments down below.

Update: The police are now saying there is no proof that Don has been found. Read more here
