TAMPA, Fla. (Tampa Bay Times) -- The surviving daughters of Don Lewis, a Tampa man who went missing 23 years ago this month, have filed a lawsuit in Hillsborough County court against "Tiger King" subjects Kenny Farr and Carole Baskin, along with a woman listed as a witness on Lewis' will. But it's not a lawsuit for money.
Phillips said Baskin is “invited to the table” to come forward with information on Lewis willingly. If not, Phillips said, “I'm a lawyer. I sue people. We'll go that route too. Make no mistake, if the family's offer for civility is rejected, if the insults continue, the next step is to bring justice, because justice is love.”
Baskin was married to Lewis when he disappeared. Lewis was never found after Baskin reported him missing on Aug. 17, 1997, a day before a scheduled trip to Costa Rica. He was declared legally dead in 2002. Lewis' daughters have expressed suspicion that Baskin was somehow involved in his disappearance. Baskin has fervently denied it.
