TAMPA, FLORIDA: Carole Baskin’s recent claim that her husband Don Lewis is “alive and well” hasn’t settled well with the missing husband’s family. The ‘Tiger King’ star has rekindled her decades-long feud with Lewis’ family. The family have accused Baskin of manipulating a letter featured in Netflix’s ‘Tiger King 2′ to create a different narrative about Lewis’ disappearance.
The Lewis daughters said, “In the past few days, we have learned of recently published news articles claiming that our father, Jack Donald Lewis, has been found ‘alive and safe’ in Costa Rica,” according to the New York Post. However, Lewis family spokesman Jack Smith said the daughters were upset by Baskin’s claims. He added: “I think she’s just trying to do whatever it takes to clear her name.” Animal activist Baskin, 61, was previously accused of murdering her husband, grinding the remains through a meat grinder and feeding them to the tigers, so the point of sale.
‘We need proof’: The internet is confused as Carole Baskin claims her ‘dead’ husband Don Lewis was found alive
Who are the daughters of Don Lewis?
Don Lewis raised three daughters, Donna Pettis, Lynda Sanchez and Gale Rathbone. Not much information about the daughters is released. However, their statement continued, “While we would certainly welcome the good news that our father has been found alive, it is simply not true that our father was sighted in Costa Rica. This report prompted Donna, Don Lewis’ eldest daughter, and her husband, Tim, to travel to Costa Rica in November 1997 to search for Don Lewis.”
It continued, “This was the same account shown in ‘Tiger King 2’ that is now being used to fill in a different narrative of what happened to our father. Our father is still listed as a missing person on the National Missing and the Database of Unidentified Persons. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department is still actively working on our father’s case, and we are in constant communication with them as they move forward.
