The timing could not have been better for the producers of Netflix’s newest hit series Tiger King.
Not only did the show feature a simply unbelievable menagerie of wild and unique characters, but it hit streaming services at exactly the same time that many Americans were just beginning to hunker down for this extended bout of social distancing.
In other words, we were more than ready to be absorbed into a world of complete and utter insanity. And then some.
And, in the midst of a documentary that had a truly hard time choosing a hero, we met a woman named Carole Baskins who was immediately tried in the court of public opinion for the death of her husband Don. You can likely imagine the outcome of that public adjudication by the tone of the previous sentence.
Now, several months after the documentary came to fruition, the Baskins case has been rocked again.
An attorney for the missing husband of “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin said he believes that the signature of his former client on a document essentially giving Baskin all his money is a forgery.
“I believe it was traced,” lawyer Joseph Fritz, former attorney and friend to Don Lewis, told Nancy Grace in an exclusive interview on Fox Nation’s “Crime Stories.”
“Somebody sat at my office and had the pictures and was able to lay one over the other on their cellphone and they are a perfect match,” he continued, noting that typically a person’s signature shows at least a minimum variation.
“If the signature of Don Lewis was traced. Carol Baskin is in a whole world of trouble now,” said Grace.
Fans of the Tiger King documentary are sure to view this news with a keen interest, as the program left only that stone unturned during its limited run.
