“Tiger King” star Carole Baskin has repeatedly refused to speak to a Florida detective investigating the disappearance of her second husband who vanished in 1997, authorities said.
Cpl. Moises Garcia of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that Baskin turned down three interview requests after the investigation into the disappearance of Don Lewis was reopened following the wildly popular Netflix documentary.
