” He liked those cats. He never would have just left them– ever,” Fritz continued, “He took pride in those cats. He loved his cats. Some force made him leave.”
Fritz’s “working theory” in Lewis’ disappearance was that he was coaxed to a private county airport by the offer of a deal to acquire an aircraft and after that killed.
” Don Lewis, he was awfully cheap while he was really wealthy. He was cheap beyond belief,” Fritz informed Grace ” What would have lured him more than anything else is a bargain on a plane. That’s what I presume taken place– that he got enticed up to the Pilot Nation Estates to look at an airplane.”
Lewis’ deserted automobile was discovered in the parking lot of the personal airport. Baskin consequently informed police that he was intending on traveling to Costa Rica, where he had a house.

” What do you think happened to Jack Don Lewis?” asked Grace.
” What I had heard was that he was strangled from the backseat of an aircraft over the Gulf [of Mexico] at 50 feet and dropped out over the Gulf,” said Fritz, who noted that Lewis preferred to fly low, under the range of radar detection, since his pilot’s license had actually been revoked.
