Carole Baskin's Behavior The Night of Don Lewis's Disappearance and Shortly After Was Suspicious
And her police officer brother might have been involved.
A few hours before Don disappeared, Carole went to pick up milk byproduct for the tigers—at 3 in the morning. She claims that her car broke down. She just so happened to run into her brother—a member of law enforcement—who gave her a ride. She says a few hours later is when she saw Don for the last time. But no one can corroborate her story. No one even knows for sure that he was alive at that point. Carole’s brother was a member of the sheriff’s department. Some suspect that he may have guided the investigation away from Carole. Not only was Carole's behavior that night suspicious, what she did after that was also strange. She soon went to his office to take files, but she did not call the police immediately to report him missing. It took several days for her to decide to make the call, and she called only after Don's secretary urged her to do so.
