This is so not shocking news, but it’s interesting to hear nonetheless. As it turns out, there is MORE to the “Carole Baskin may have fed her husband to her tigers” story.
In case you have been living under a rock for the last 5-ish months, Carole’s ex-husband, Don Lewis, mysteriously disappeared way back in 1997. Baskin says that he simply walked away, and vanished off the face of the earth.
Other people have their own theories as to what happened. On Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness, we hear the theory that Carole may have fed Lewis to her big cats — and I’m going to be honest, it’s pretty plausible.
It came out a couple months ago that Don’s will had been forged, stripping Don’s family of any rights to his fortune. Guess who wound up with everything? Yep, Carole.
The only problem? The statute of limitations has already passed on any criminal activity on the will, so it doesn’t matter one-way-or-the-other if it is a true forgery. A judge had previously deemed it valid, and that’s all that matters.
BUT NOW, there is going to be a new 48 Hours Suspicion special, airing on CBS September 9th, that is going to shed MORE light on the supposed and alleged disappearance of Don Lewis.
Trish Farr-Payne is the ex wife of Kenny Farr, who was the longtime handyman for Don Lewis. As it turns out, Kenny might not have been a very loyal employee to Lewis.
On the upcoming 48 Hours Suspicion special, Trish Farr-Payne will flat-out say that Kenny may have had something to do with the disappearance of Don Lewis.
Just days before Lewis was reported missing, Farr-Payne says her ex-husband came home from work one day and told her, “Don’s gone, and I don’t want you talking about him.” She will then go on to explain how a locked freezer on her porch soon disappeared after Farr’s ominous comments.Comicbook.com
She tells 48 Hours Suspicion, “I was afraid for my kids — You know, I had my kids. I was afraid for them. I was more afraid for them than anything.”
It is pretty important to note that Kenny Farr was not able to be reached to defend himself in this allegation.
I will most definitely be tuning into CBS on September 9th to hear more on the continuing trainwreck that is the Carole Baskin saga.
