Don famously went missing in 1997. Despite an investigation at the time, Don's case was never solved and in 2002, he was legally declared dead. Carole inherited most of his $6m (£4.5m) estate.
However, Lowe now believes he knows where Baskin's husband is, thanks to a mysterious letter he received.
Jeff told TMZ that the letter was sent to his Tiger King Park in Oklahoma back in May 2020, and it arrived with no name or address on it.
The postmark suggested it was sent from Rhode Island.
It reads: "The corpse lies under Her House," and is signed: "The Faithful Witness."
This appears to suggest that there is a body hidden on Carole's Big Cat Rescue property, according to the letter's writer.
Carole has always vehemently and repeatedly denied any allegations that she was involved, and there is no suggestion that she is responsible for Don's disappearance.
The publication was told that Jeff and his partner Lauren were in talks with a federal agent about the letter, and also told Hillsborough County law enforcement.
According to the site, Jeff refused to send the letter to Hillsborough County at first, back in May 2020, but after filming Tiger King 2, he forwarded it on.
However, speaking to TMZ, Carole's husband Howard was quick to debunk the contents of the letter as yet more nonsense.
"This is just another stupid stunt by Lowe to deflect from his own legal troubles," he told the publication.
"Only a moron would think that an anonymous letter has any value."
Many believe it was Carole who was responsible for her husband's death, with Don's family - ex wife Gladys Lewis Cross, daughters Donna Pettis, Lynda Sanchez and Gale Rathbone - and her nemesis Joe Exotic even theorising she crushed Don in her meat grinder and fed him to their tigers.
Carole has always vehemently denied the allegations, explaining "the unsavoury lies are better for getting viewers" (and it's worth noting there's no evidence to back the claims up, and that she has never been charged).
The animal activist says she always thought Tiger King was a documentary about animal cruelty, rather than her personal life, and is said to have considered the series a "freak show" when it aired.
