Peacock’s scripted series, Joe vs. Carole, explored the longtime feud between the Tiger King stars, Joe Exotic, and Carole Baskin. And in doing so, Carole’s daughter Jamie Veronica Murdock was put to the screen, portrayed by Dare Me star, Marlo Kelly.
However, since the show mostly focused on the Tiger King stars, most parts of Jamie’s life were left untouched. But worry not, for here we are with this “Jamie Veronica Murdock Bio” with very information you need to know about her.
Meet Jamie Veronica Murdock, Carole Baskin Daughter
Jamie Veronica Murdock is Carole Baskin’s daughter, who’s been working with her mother at the Big Cat Rescue sanctuary for over a decade. Yes, if you’re a Tiger King star that you might have seen her once over the 2020 ep titled “The Secret.”
But since the show centered around Joe (real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage), Carole’s side of the story was less prioritized. So, it’s natural for many to not remember her.
Jamie Veronica Murdock Dad
Jamie Veronica Murdock’s dad is Michael Murdock — Carole Baskin’s first husband.
Reportedly, the Tiger King star and Michael were married back in 1978 and had Jamie shortly afterward.
According to Carole, Jamie’s dad was “extremely abusive.” She made him feel like, she would have killed him to get out of the marriage. However, she bore with him for 7 long years, too scared to leave him because it would mean taking care of Jamie on her own.
So, after the divorce, Carole then went on to marry Don Lewis in 1981 (whom she met 4 years before the divorce). Recalling her first encounter with him, Carole shared that he first introduced himself as “Bob Martin, a poor lot boy that worked for this evil guy, Don Lewis.” So, whenever they would meet, he told her they had to hide from “Don.” Little did she know that they were hiding from Don’s wife instead.
Carole and her second husband then went on to cherish 16 years of married life before Don mysteriously vanished in 1997.
Many, including Carole’s “rival” Joe Exotic believes that it was Carole herself who killed her Don. However, the court has already cleared her as a suspect.
After Don, Carole then married Howard Baskin in 2004, and they’ve been together ever since.
