Jaws dropped all over the Internet when a news report made rounds that Tiger King star Carole Baskin’s dead and missing husband Don Lewis was very much alive. Turns out, an interview from November 2021 resurfaced on social media this week. In the interview, Carole Baskin revealed that Don Lewis was alive and living life in Costa Rica.
Carole claimed the Department of Homeland Security reached out to her via a letter. In the letter, they reassured her that Don had been found and was alive. Carole explained in the interview she learned he was alive at the same time Tiger King Season 2 was released by Netflix. So, that is why the information didn’t come out sooner. Now, this news had some of the Internet scratching their heads as the interview allegedly happened back in 2021.
Why was this interview just resurfacing now? Why did it largely go unnoticed when Carole claimed he was alive back in 2021? Is she lying?
Carole Baskin Lied: Don Lewis Remains Dead And Missing?
According to TMZ, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office remains in charge of Don Lewis’ missing person case. While Don was declared dead back in 2002, no one ever found his body. So, no one is really sure what happened to him. Most of the Internet firmly believes that Carole Baskin killed her husband and fed his body to the tigers. But, there has never been any proof beyond speculation that was what happened. Without a body and/or confession, there is nothing authorities can do about Don Lewis.
Speaking to TMZ, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement saying they have never been contacted by the Department of Homeland Security to confirm Don Lewis was alive. On their records, he is still legally dead. And, his body is still missing. In fact, the sheriff’s office told TMZ that Don Lewis’ case still remains a high priority as absolutely nothing has changed. And, there is zero evidence to suggest he is alive and in Costa Rica as Carole Baskin claimed in her interview.
Why would she lie about it?
Carole Baskin lying that her ex-husband is alive and living in Costa Rica only adds fuel to the theory she’s actually the reason he’s missing. The Internet agrees Carole has no reason to lie about him being alive unless she’s doing it because she wants people to get off her back assuming she’s the one who killed him.
To this day, the Internet firmly believes Carole Baskin has something to do with the fact that Don Lewis disappeared. Carole, however, insists she was just as bothered by him disappearing and did nothing to harm him.
Why do you think she lied and said he was alive when he has never been found? Let us know in the comments down below.
