Earlier this year, Netflix had everybody watching the popular show, #TigerKing and with its popularity one question still needed answered—“Where was Don Lewis, Carole Baskin’s husband?” Welp, it looks like his family is ready to get to the bottom of the 1997 disappearance and is offering a $100,000 reward.
According to @USAToday, the family of Don Lewis, the missing husband, held a press conference to announce an independent investigation into his disappearance.
“We really need someone to come forward in the case with information,” family spokesman Jack Smith said during a Monday news conference in Tampa, Fla. He continued, “And there’s a lot of people out there that have information but they’re scared to come forward. There’s people with animals — exotic animals — that are scared if they come forward, they’re gonna lose their animals somehow.”
In response, Carole stated this was a “publicity stunt.”
“It’s been my policy not to discuss pending litigation until it’s been resolved,” she wrote. “I had told some news outlets that I thought the press conference on Aug. 10 was just a publicity stunt, but at that time was not aware there would be pending litigation,” according to the Associate Press.
As we previously reported, Florida authorities are officially looking into the disappearance of Carole Baskin’s husband, who many feel was murdered by Carole herself.
Since “Tiger King” became such a hit, an online petition has also been created to get the FBI to reopen the investigation. The petition states, “It’s obvious that Carole did, in fact, murder her millionaire husband and feed his remains to tigers.”
At one point, there was also a petition for Joe Exotic who is serving 20 years in prison that urged Donald Trump to pardon him.
