Two handwriting experts have gone on the record saying that the signatures on the will and power of attorney of Tiger King’s Carole Baskin’s missing husband Don Lewis were forged. More specifically, they were traced from Carole and Don’s marriage licence. As you may know, Carole inherited his millions when Lewis was declared legally dead in 2002, five years after he went missing.

And, to add a little more fuel to the fire it turns out that a woman by the name of Susan Aronoff Bradshaw who used to work at Carole’s Big Cat Rescue also signed Don’s will. Apparently back in 2007 Susan said that Carole asked her to testify that she was present when Don signed the will even though she wasn’t really there. And she did it because she was afraid to cross Carole.
