Carole Baskin’s big debut on “Dancing with the Stars” was interrupted in part due to the drama of the Netflix “Tiger King” documentary on Monday night.
Viewers of the Netflix documentary know that Beskin has refused to play a role in the 1997 disappearance and subsequent death of her first husband, Jack “Don” Lewis. The Lewis family made it clear that they are leaving no stone unturned to find answers surrounding his death, thanks to a commercial that aired during the ABC show’s premiere.
In the commercial, viewers of “DWTS” watch Louise’s daughters Gail, Donna, and Linda demanding answers for their father’s death.

“Gayle is one of Don Lewis’ daughters, we are a real family and for us, he was Daddy,” Gayle says to the camera. Linda then enters, telling the public, “We miss our father.”
Donna says, “I am Donna, I am the eldest daughter of Don Lewis. We need to know what happened to our father.”
The commercial also included comments from Lewis’ former assistant, Anne, who made a brief appearance on Netflix documents. She tells the audience, “We are asking that there be justice for Don.” Lewis family lawyer, John M. Phillips also made a statement.

“Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997. His family wants answers. They deserve justice. Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved?” He asks.
The commercial aired during the Monday night premiere of season 29 of “Dancing with the Stars”. Just a few weeks ago, fans were stunned to learn that Basak would compete for the Mirror Ball Trophy this season.
This is not the first time the Lewis family has asked the public for help. In August, the family and their attorney held a press conference announcing an independent investigation into Lewis’s death and were offering $ 100,000 in exchange for information about it.

Lewis disappeared a day before a scheduled trip to Costa Rica and was never found. He was declared legally dead in 2002. He and Baskin started Animal Sanctuary, which later became Big Cat Rescue Corp in Tampa.
Lewis’ case, and Beskin were featured in the popular Netflix documentary series “Tiger King: Murder, Mehmed, and Madness”. The show was also followed by Joseph Maldonado-Passage, also known as “Joe Exotic”, an eccentric former Oklahoma zookeeper who loves big cats. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison for his role in the murder-for-hire conspiracy that included trying to hire someone to kill Baskin.
Baskin was known for years for trying to close the Oklahoma Zoo of Maldonado-Passage, he was accused of abusing animals and selling big cat cubs.
In retaliation, Maldonado-Passage raised questions about Baskin’s ex-husband. The documentary extensively covered her repeated allegations that Beskin killed her husband and possibly fed her to his tigers. Beskin has not been charged with a crime and has repeatedly issued statements denying the allegations leveled in the series.
‘Tiger King’: Car Basin family members have already announced $ 100G for information about this news.
In June, a federal judge controlled the Oklahoma Zoo’s Baskin Big Cat Rescue Corporation, formerly run by Maldonado-Passage and Jeff Lowe.
In March, the Hillsborough County Sheriff sought suggestions in Lewis’s case and announced the reopening of Lewis’s case.
