While the Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness “bonus” episode was certainly a major letdown to many viewers, the real postscript to the show is still ongoing as Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister is still hard at it in his reinvestigation of the mysterious death of Carole Baskin’s second husband Don Lewis.
After being inspired to reopen the case following the massive popularity of Tiger King and with numerous tips and potential new evidence and testimonies coming to light, Chronister has been very busy sorting through it all as he tries to find some closure in the case.
On Monday, Chronister spoke with TMZ about the case and how it is progressing since being reignited by the insanely popular Netflix documentary series.
According to Chronister, one person alone could not have committed the alleged murder of Don Lewis. He also added that someone must have helped in Lewis’ disappearance and that someone got paid for it.
“I’m extremely suspicious, but not just of her,” said Chronister. “Of this whole circle here. Extremely suspicious. Like I said, I don’t want to allude to the fact or insinuate that she’s our person of interest in this and this is who we’re focusing on. I’m not comfortable saying that yet.”
“Listen, there’s normally not one person that commits a homicide,” he added. “It’s always a couple people. This had to be extremely planned out. This had to be well thought out. There’s someone else involved in this. There’s someone who was paid to do it. There’s someone who helped do it. I’m hoping that person wants to come and get this off their chest and help law enforcement do the right thing.”
He continued, “And you start talking about different things with immunity, you know, deals are cut, and listen, every deal’s on the table right now. Help us solve this case.”
Don Lewis’ granddaughter Tiffany will be very happy to hear all of this.
