On August 18, 1997, Don Lewis left his Tampa, FL, home and disappeared forever. But what happened to Carole Baskin's husband? The police found his car at a private airport, but that didn't stop Lewis's family from pointing the finger at his second wife, Carole Baskin. As police scoured the 69-acre wildlife sanctuary Lewis and Baskin owned, they found no traces of the missing person. The search even went international, with Florida police officers flying south to Costa Rica to look for Lewis.
For decades, the case languished with no new evidence - until 2020, when the Don Lewis cold case hit the headlines again thanks to the popularity of the Netflix true crime series Tiger King. But did Carole really off her husband and feed him to the tigers? Or was there more to the story?
