Family Of Carole Baskin's Missing Husband Air Appeal During 'Dancing With The Stars' Debut

Family Of Carole Baskin's Missing Husband Air Appeal During 'Dancing With The Stars' Debut

The family of missing Don Lewis aired an appeal during Carole Baskin's Dancing With The Stars TV debut on Monday.

As many Tiger King fans will know, Carole's ex-husband Don went missing back in 1997, and despite an investigation at the time, his case was never solved, meaning in 2002, he was legally declared dead, and Carole inherited his $6m (£4.5m) estate.

Even though she has vehemently denied any involvement, some believe she was responsible for her husband's death, with Don's family and her nemesis Joe Exotic even theorising she crushed Don in her meat grinder and fed him to their tigers.

So, desperate to get the public's attention, Don's family aired an appeal during the ad break of the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, asking the public to come forward with any information they may have.

In the ad, Don's daughters, Gale Rathbone, Lynda Sanchez and Donna Pettis, begged people to come forward with anything they knew, while Lewis's former assistant, Anne, pled "all we're asking is justice for Don".

The family's lawyer even decided to name-check Carole in the appeal, stating: "Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997. His family deserves answers; they deserve justice. Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved?"

The family added that a $100,000 (£77,800) reward is on offer for anybody who can help.

While the advert no doubt had Carole reeling backstage, she was all smiles on the dancefloor as she grooved to Survivor's 1982 hit 'Eye Of The Tiger' with her partner Pasha Pashkov in full tiger stripes.

Unfortunately, the judges weren't feeling her moves, and she landed the lowest score on opening night - just 11.

Other stars competing in this year's competition include Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause, Catfish host Nev Shulman and actress Skai Jackson.

Actor Jesse Metcalfe is also taking to the ballroom floor, alongside Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean, and singer Nelly.
