The Mystery of Don Lewis’ Age: Unveiling the Truth Behind Carole Baskin’s Husband
The disappearance of Don Lewis, the second husband of Carole Baskin, has been a source of fascination since it occurred in 1997. The release of Netflix’s \’Tiger King\’ documentary has brought the story back into prominence, and with it, new questions surrounding the case, specifically Don Lewis\’ age.
The Official Timeline
Don Lewis was born in Dade City, Florida, on April 30th, 1938, according to his driver\’s license and other legal documents. His age at the time of his disappearance was 59.
Challenging the Narrative
Despite the official timeline, some believe that Don Lewis was significantly older than he claimed to be. Some speculate that he could have been in his 80s or even his 90s by the time of his disappearance, making him more vulnerable to potential health issues.
There have been several accounts that Don had health problems, including diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. As he was getting older, his condition worsened, and he reportedly became forgetful and disorientated.
The Wildlife Sanctuary
Despite his health issues, Don continued to run his successful wildlife sanctuary, which was worth an estimated $5 million at the time of his disappearance.
The Tumultuous Marriage
Don and Carole were married at the time, but their marriage was reportedly tumultuous. According to several accounts, Don had threatened to divorce Carole and had confided in friends about her alleged abusive behavior towards him.
One theory suggests that Carole killed Don to gain control of his wealth and put an end to their troubled marriage. Another theory suggests that Don could have simply left on his own accord, fed up with his situation and seeking a new life elsewhere.
