In a press conference, Lewis' previous wife and daughters were accompanied by the family's attorney, John Phillips. They announced they are offering a $100,000 reward for information on the millionaire.

Not only is the family offering $100,000 reward for information on the disappearance of Lewis, another attorney is offering to represent, pro-bono, whoever fears being charged but might have information on the case.

Lewis disappeared 23 years ago in 1997. Lewis ran the Big Cat Rescue sanctuary with Baskin up until his disappearance.

Former Oklahoma zookeeper Joe Exotic, who's also in the documentary, released a music video implying that Baskin fed Lewis' body to her tigers. Baskin refuted this both in the series and a Facebook post.

Joe was sentenced to a federal prison in January 2020 for his involvement in a murder-for-hire scheme to kill Baskin.
