Dog The Bounty Hunter’s Wife, Beth Chapman, Has Passed Away

Duane Dog Chapman released the news on Twitter that his wife, Beth Chapman, has passed away today. Beth was struggling with throat cancer for years, and her health has been deteriorating since. She was placed in a medically-induced coma on Saturday, and her family was notified it was unlikely she would wake up from it. Beth is survived by her husband, four children, and 14 grandchildren.

At only 49 years old, she was diagnosed with throat cancer. Two years later, at the age of 51, she has passed away.

Her husband, who grew to fame on his show “Dog The Bounty Hunter” released the news on Twitter:

“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’s mother, children, and grandchildren flew to Hawaii to be by her side during her last moments. They were told on Saturday, after a medically-induced coma, that “not much could be done.”


Late Saturday, Duane asked his followers on Twitter to please say their prayers for his wife, who was in pain.

“Dog The Bounty Hunter” ran for eight seasons on A&E, catapulting this family into the limelight. There were two spinoff shows after it was cancelled, but neither took off like the original.
