His full name is Joseph Maldonado - Passage, and he revealed the results of a recent biopsy on Twitter.

"The doctors called me today to break the news that my prostate biopsy came back with an aggressive cancer, Carole Will have her own party over this! Say a prayer everyone & be my voice," Joe wrote.

He was sentenced to 22 years in prison. Prosecutors said he paid an unnamed man $ 3,000 in 2017 to kill Carole Baskin. He was also convicted of cruelty to animals. He killed tigers, illegally sold their cubs, and forged documents.

The star of Netflix's popular crime documentary "Tiger King" wrote in an open letter last month that he was not asking for pity.

"They have proof that I did not do that. There is no reason for the Prosecution to procrastinate. I want to go home, get treatment and enjoy the rest of my life with my loved ones," he added.
