Beth Chapman, the wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman, who stared in “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” died today in Honolulu. At the time of her death, she was 51.
Before her death, Beth was in a medically induced coma as she was battling cancer. Both Chapman and her husband were the stars of the uber-popular reality show. The show was about their family business in bounty hunting and was television from 2004-2012.
Beth was born in Denver, Colorado. For some time, she was the youngest woman in her home state to receive a bail license. However, her daughter, Baby Lyssa, was able to break that record.

For 30 years, Chapman devoted her life to her work. On the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” website, it states that Chapman was on the executive board of the national association. However, she became the president in 2016.
With all of that in mind, it was the love story as well as the antics from the fugitives that kept viewers tuning into the show. The two were also in the midst of raising 12 children together as well.
From 2013-2015 the couple, as well as their son Leland, were the stars of CMT’s reality series, “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt,” for three seasons. It was during Septemeber of 2017 that the couple announced on their Official Facebook account Beth’s diagnosis of Stage 2 throat cancer.
However, during the A&E special, “Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives,” the couple was able to reveal that she was now cancer free.
Unfortunately, last year, the cancer came back, and Chapman was updating her status for her supporters on various social media sites. According to her husband, she was not taking any medicine from the doctors. She was exploring other alternative methods and treatments before her death.
