Beth Chapman, Dog The Bounty Hunter Star, Has Died Aged 51
UPDATE AT 17:05 GMT: Duane just tweeted about Beth.
It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.

Beth Chapman, who starred alongside her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman in multiple versions of the iconic show, Dog the Bounty Hunter, has died.
She died on Wednesday at a Honolulu hospital, after she was placed in a medically-induced coma.
In 2017, she was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer and was then given the good news that she was cancer free by December 2017.
Cancer returned in November 2018, and she underwent an aggressive form of chemotherapy and tried maintaining a healthy and normal lifestyle.
On Mother’s Day, she stopped chemotherapy, but in April was rushed to the hospital after she had trouble breathing.
At age 29, she became the youngest in Colorado to gain a license as a bail bondsman, with her own daughter, Lyssa Chapman, breaking that record after becoming licensed age 19.
Duane met Beth when he was 35 and she was 19. They met in typical-Dog circumstances after she was shopping and got a call from her boss, which distracted her, and she left without payment carrying a lemon.
She was carrying an unlicensed and unregistered gun in her pocket that she had taken from her then-drunk-boyfriend. Her father called Dog who bailed her out. In 2006, they married each other the day after Duane’s daughter, Barbara Katy, was killed in a car accident in Alaska.
Production of their new show, Dog’s Most Wanted, began in February and is slated for airing next year — but it’s unclear whether filming was complete.
Rest in Peace.
