‘Tiger King’ seems like years ago because we’ve spent so long cooped up indoors, but so much has happened in the past week alone that it seems like a distant memory.

You might have missed that Carole Baskin was awarded control of Joe Exotic’s zoo this week and now Jeff Lowe has decided to wade into the conversation again, claiming that a body is buried underneath it. I suppose that wouldn’t be that surprising given all the weird shit that went on in that world, would it?
Here’s exactly what Jeff had to say:
In all honesty, and people probably won’t believe me, but she deserves this property.
She beat Joe, he didn’t defend himself, and she’s entitled to the judgement.
We didn’t defend this suit because one, we knew the law would be on her side, and two, it wasn’t worth us defending this property because we didn’t want it.
Lauren and I tried to donate it to the Indian Nation about a year ago because we knew there were the remains of a young American Indian boy buried here and we thought that the Nation should have the first opportunity to protect this land and his grave.
There’s more, that’s a story for another day, and I promise to tell you about it. There’s more bodies than that here.
It’s always been our intention to leave this place. We don’t particularly like it here, because of its geographical location.
It’s not a great place for a business, it was poorly constructed, so we’re happy to let her have it… I wish her all the luck in the world, and she can have these 16 acres of haunted memories.
We’re leaving it in a state to complete hell as we have 120 days to vacate the property.
I mean, because I’m not taking care of it as we leave. The bamboo is about taking this place over.
I mean when are we going to hear these other stories and what better opportunity is there to tell them than now? I guess we could wait until the inevitable season two of the show, but it kinda seems like they need to get some of this out there right now if they want to maintain interest in it. Just saying.
Also, maybe the cops should get involved if he’s going around claiming there are bodies buried there? Maybe a thought?
For more of the same, here’s the full story about how Carole Baskin managed to get a hold of Joe’s zoo. Inevitable really considering.
