BIOGRAPHY AND WIKIPEDIA: Carole Baskin’s “dead” husband, Don Lewis, has been found alive and has been living in Costa Rica

Carole Baskin’s “dead” husband has been found alive and has been living in Costa Rica.

According to a 2021 interview, Don Lewis, the "dead" spouse of "Tiger King's" Carole Baskin, was purportedly discovered alive in Costa Rica years ago.

Somehow, in a 2021 interview with ITV's "This Morning" program, Baskin made the crazy claim that her ex-husband, long believed to have been slain, is "alive and well" in Costa Rica.

"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 they said that my husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica." Baskin declared.

"[Lewis] took about a million dollars down into Costa Rica and I had agreed to let him do that so he could prove to himself that he could make a living," she continued.

The mystery surrounding Lewis's disappearance was a major plot point in the popular Netflix series "Tiger King" and its follow-up.The debut of the first season coincided with the COVID-19 outbreak that put the entire world on high alert.

With little else to do, "Tiger King" quickly rose to fame internationally and gave rise to rumors surrounding Baskin's husband, who was thought to be poisonous, who mysteriously vanished in 1997.

Lewis was still Baskin's husband when he vanished, but she later remarried her present husband, Howard Baskin, in 2004, according to the New York Post. In 2002, Lewis was formally pronounced deceased.

During a Nov. 2021 interview with ITV’s “This Morning” talk show, Baskin, 61, said Lewis, who was declared legally dead in 2002 after disappearing a few years before, is alive.

However, Baskin told The Post she was unaware he was alive until the “Tiger King” sequel series aired.

Baskin, the owner of Big Cat Rescue, told ITV that the Department of Homeland Security has been in touch with her ex-husband.

“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,” Baskin told the outlet at the time.

“They said my husband, Don Lewis, is alive and well in Costa Rica,” she revealed. “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.”

Lewis disappeared in 1997 at the age of 59 — and would be 84 if he’s still alive today.

Baskin shot to fame back in 2020 when she starred on the Netflix docu-series that followed the adventures of big-cat keeper, Joseph Maldonado-Passage.

During the series, Maldonado-Passage repeatedly accused Baskin of being connected to her former husband’s death, after he mysteriously went missing in 1997, just six years after they were married. Baskin denied the allegations made against her, which notably included that she had fed Lewis’ body to her animals.
