According to IMDb, Dog the Bounty Hunter’s late wife Beth Chapman passed away on June 26, 2019. It was throat and lung cancer that claimed her life.
During her life, Beth set a Colorado record as the youngest licensed bail bondsman. She earned this distinction when she was 29 years old. Interestingly, it was her step-daughter, Lyssa Chapman, who broke that record. Lyssa became a licensed bail bondsman at the young age of 19. Clearly, Lyssa was following in the footsteps of her father and her stepmother.
Beth and Duane Chapman were married from May 2006 until her death. They were married in Hawaii. The day before they exchanged vows his daughter, Barbara-Katie Chapman perished in a car accident. The fatal incident took place in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Following Beth’s death, Dog the Bounty Hunter has remarried. He married Francie Frane in early September 2021. The two became engaged during May 2020. The wedding wasn’t exactly welcomed by some members of the Chapman family.
