It’s been over two decades since Carole Baskin‘s husband, Don Lewis, went missing in 1997 — and the bizarre tragedy continues to follow her. During Baskin’s Dancing With the Stars debut, Lewis’ family brought his disappearance to light and even named the Tiger King star in a commercial that aired during the DWTS telecast.
The commercial was broadcast on Monday night in Jacksonville and Tampa, along with other markets. It featured Lewis’ three daughters explaining how much they love and miss him, and how eager they are to know what happened to him.
Lewis’ former assistant said that his loved ones are asking for justice, and the family even questioned Baskin’s involvement in the disappearance.
The family said that they can offer a $100,000 reward for a tip.
Lewis’ sudden disappearance in 1997 was brought into the spotlight after the hit show Tiger King was released on Netflix earlier this year. Some of the Tiger King figures interviewed in the Netflix docuseries alleged that Baskin participated in the mysterious disappearance — and plenty of viewers agree! Theories have circulated the Internet that Baskin killed her husband and fed him to the tigers.
No arrests have been made, and nobody has been charged in Lewis’ mysterious disappearance. The legal findings declared him dead in 2002 — however, the Florida police reopened the case after renewed interest due to the Tiger King.
OK! exclusively reported that other contestants on the reality show want her gone and say that she’s an embarrassment!
