Tiger King's Jeff Lowe insists there's 'much more' to discover about Carole Baskin's missing husband

TIGER King's Jeff Lowe has insisted there's 'much more' to discover about Carole Baskin's missing husband.

The Netflix series follows eccentric animal collector Joe Exotic, who is currently in prison after trying to hire a hitman to kill his rival, Carole.

But another major theme across the docu-series revolves around the disappearance of Carole's first husband, Jack 'Don' Lewis.

Don went missing in 1997 after 'going away to Costa Rica' and never returning, before being declared legally dead in 2002.

Carole has vehemently denied Joe's accusations that she killed Jack and either buried his body under a septic tank, or fed him to her tigers.

But now Jeff Lowe, who currently owns Joe's Oklahoma zoo, has claimed there's much more to Carole and Don's story.

Speaking on Lights Out with David Spade, Jeff alleged: "There’s no doubt. There’s no question. We know so much more than that documentary showed.

"You know, Netflix whitewashed a lot of it. I think because of legal exposure from something they can’t prove.

"But we have a lot more evidence against her that just wasn’t shown.”

The popularity of the Netflix series has lead to The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office to appeal for new leads in Don's case on Twitter on Monday.

Sheriff Chad Chronister tweeted: "Since @netflix and #Covid19 #Quarantine has made #TigerKing all the rage, I figured it was a good time to ask for new leads. #CaroleBaskin #DonLewis #Netflix #Tiger #BigCatRescue #JoeExotic #TigerKingNetflix #HCSO."

As well as her repeated denials over having anything to do with Don's disappearance, Carole has also slammed how her first marriage was portrayed on the show.

She wrote in a lengthy blog: "Anyone who wants to put up the money to replace our sceptic tanks is welcome to dig them all up."

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is available to stream now on Netflix.
