‘Tiger King’ highlighted the ongoing feud between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, with the former trying to hire hitmen to take her out. Despite the many controversies, a mystery at the heart of the docuseries was the disappearance of Don Lewis, Carole’s husband. While Exotic pointed the finger at Baskin for the murder, Don’s body has never been found.
The disappearance and explosive new information about the same is the subject of CBS’s ’48 Hours Suspicion,’ in an episode titled ‘The Tiger King Mystery.’ Naturally, the newly generated interest has once again put Baskin in the spotlight. It is only augmented by the recent announcement that she’s participating in ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ Season 29. With this newfound interest in Carole’s life, one fact becomes evident – her daughter, Jamie Veronica Murdock, has always been by her side.
Jamie was born to Carole while she was married to her boss, Mike Murdock, in Tampa, Florida. When she had Jamie, Carole was very young and a lot has happened to Baskin since then. So, where is Jamie Veronica Murdock now?
