Lawyer Comes Out Swinging With Spicy New Details Around How Carole Baskin Supposedly Killed Her Husband
It’s the saga we just can't get enough of.
If you’re not acquainted with the story of Tiger King, we strongly suggest you finish reading this article and then immediately hop on over to Netflix to get cracking because that show is one hell of a ride. Seriously, you just can’t script that.
Tiger King star Carole Baskin is notoriously linked to the mysterious death of her husband, Don Lewis, 23-years ago.
The man vanished without a trace, leaving Carole with somewhere between AU$7 million to $15 million and a whole zoo of exotic big cats. Verryyyyy sus.
The late Don’s attorney, Joseph Fritz, has now put on record that he has no doubt foul play was involved. "In my view, there's no question but that he was murdered," Fritz told the A Tiger King Investigation series. "He loved those cats. He never would have just walked away from them - ever."
"He was proud of those cats. He loved his cats. Some force made him leave."
Carole was the one to report his 1997 disappearance, with Don being pronounced dead five years later.
But the explosive news doesn’t stop there, with Fritz commenting on a theory he heard involving Don’s love for flying planes.
"What I had heard was that he was strangled from the backseat of an airplane over the Gulf [of Mexico] at 50 feet and dropped out over the Gulf," he speculated.
Don’s pilot licence was apparently revoked at the time, however his abandoned vehicle was later found in the parking lot of a private airport.
Fritz’s own opinion? A plane crash after a dodgy cheap plane deal.
"Don Lewis, he was terribly cheap while he was very wealthy. He was cheap beyond belief," Mr Fritz told the series. "What would have lured him more than anything else is a good deal on an airplane. So that's what I assume happened - that he got lured up to the Pilot Country Estates to look at an airplane."
Again, you just can’t script this stuff!!!!!
We do hope we’ll one day get to the bottom of this mystery. But as the viral TV show says, if he was fed to their big cats then we’d ironically be sh*t out of luck in finding evidence.
Just gotta keep our cool, you cats and kittens.
