Carole Baskin gifted properties worth hundreds of thousands to handy man after husband Don Lewis’s disappearance

CAROLE Baskin gifted properties worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to her handyman shortly after husband Don Lewis’s disappearance, The Sun can reveal.

The new twist comes after handyman Kenny Farr’s ex-wife Trish claimed he told her Don was ground up and fed to the alligators.

A cadaver dog also recently picked up the scent of human remains just meters from a lake house that once belonged to Don, raising further questions about the mysterious case, which gained worldwide attention in the docu-series Tiger King.

Investigator Jim Rathman, who conducted a lengthy probe into the case for Tigers, Lies and Cover Ups, an Investigation Discovery documentary, says he uncovered unusual connections between Carole, Don and Kenny including how Kenny brought home all of Don’s gun collection around the time he went missing.

Property records shared with The Sun also show how Kenny was gifted six properties by Carole for under $20k – when they were worth 15 times that sum, according to property records in Florida.

Carole hit back against the claims, telling The Sun the properties were not gifts as she was just trying to help him get started in business and he later signed them back over.

“[Kenny’s ex wife] Trish revealed that missing link to me telling me about the property transfers,” Jim told The Sun.

“Baskin gave multiple properties to Kenny, just a month after her husband went missing.

“And these transactions were under $10k value, which you do not have to report to the IRS.

“But they were worth hundreds of thousands.

Wayne Bailey: Bahrain Pride worth siding with in punter-friendly Mill Reef

Usually a punter-friendly race, the last shock winner, if you could call it that, of the Group Two Mill Reef Stakes (3.25 Newbury) was Lord Shanakill at 10/1 back in 2008.

I know things can and do change in racing, but I’ve had reasonable success in this contest when sticking near the short end of the market – and I must admit that I’m finding it hard to separate Rhythm Master and Bahrain Pride, which are trading at 11/4 and 4/1 respectively at the time of writing, behind likely favourite Fivethousandtoone (9/4).

Third in the Prix Morny at Deauville last time out, Rhythm Master sets the standard, and that win came on the back of a successful debut at Haydock.
