‘Tiger King’ zookeeper found dead in Brooklyn apartment

NEW YORK – A zookeeper from the Netflix series “Tiger King” was found dead inside a Brooklyn apartment.

Police say they found Erik Cowie, 52, unconscious in the bedroom of a home on East 55th Street, East Flatbush last Friday.

He is presumed dead at the scene.

Cowie appeared on the Netflix show last year as one of the tiger keepers at the zoo run by a man calling himself Joe Exotic. His real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage.

Maldonado-Passage was found guilty of attempted murder and violating the Endangered Species Act.

Cowie testified against him at that trial.

An autopsy will determine Cowie’s cause of death.
