Carole Baskin Claims Don Lewis Had Dementia
But none of his friends or family members noticed any kind of memory loss whatsoever.

Carole Baskin claims that Don had developed memory problems and potentially dementia or Alzheimer’s. She thinks that this may have caused his disappearance.
At one point, Carole blamed his flying hobby, saying that multiple plane crashes may have contributed to his memory issues. “I don’t think he was ever completely right after that last crash,” Baskin said.
She claims that his memory problems got worse over time. Baskin claims that at one point a volunteer came to her suspecting that he may have Alzheimer’s.
After he disappeared, Carole appeared on local TV, crying. “Maybe he doesn’t know where he is. Maybe he doesn’t know who to call,” she said.
She spoke again about this in a post to Big Cat Rescue's Website. In it, she claims that his mental state had so deteriorated that he was dumpster diving. She claims he actually filed the restraining order to prevent her from hauling away his junk. Carole also said that he had such advanced mental problems that he was defecating outside.
Close friends and family said that they saw no signs of memory loss whatsoever. His business associate, Wendell Williams summed it up succinctly, saying: “That’s all bull.”
Don’s lawyer corroborated this. “He knew exactly what was going on,” he said of Don in the documentary.
