The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department is now asking for new leads into the disappearance of Jack 'Don' Lewis after the missing person's case became one of the focuses of the widely popular Netflix series, 'Tiger King.'
Don Lewis is the former husband of one of the show's stars, Carole Baskin, who runs a big cat rescue organization in Florida. The show highlights Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue, including her marriage to the multi-millionaire.
Don Lewis vanished on August 18, 1997, and the investigation into his disappearance was one of the central focuses of the new show. In the Netflix series, the 'Tiger King' Joe Exotic accuses Carole of having something to do with Don's disappearance, including the wild and unproven allegation he somehow was fed to Tigers.
