Tiger King

In "Tiger King 2," a clip of Baskin is shown where she says she possibly received documents from Homeland Security detailing Don's whereabouts. She's denied ever being involved in her second husband's disappearance. 


When they presented a letter that looks to be from Homeland Security saying that Don was alive and well five years after I saw him the last time … then I reached out to the FBI and said I want a copy of that letter," she said. "I want to know what that says because part of it was redacted, and I don't know who the people involved were. 

His disappearance was part of the many plot lines covered in the "Tiger King," which provided an in-depth look into the world of big cat sanctuaries from a few very different perspectives.

One of those views was from the vantage of eccentric animal lover Joe Exotic who claimed Baskin was responsible for his death. 

In 1997, Lewis went missing and was declared dead by authorities. Baskin, who has never been charged with a crime related to the cold case, spent much of 2020 releasing statements refuting the accusations made in the series by her chief rival Joe Exotic, also known as Joseph Maldonado-Passage, as well as Lewis' kin.
