Beth Chapman, star of Dog the Bounty Hunter and Dog’s Most Wanted, died earlier today (June 26) at a hospital in Honolulu after being placed in a medically-induced coma for days.
Chapman (pictured) was 51 and, according to reports, died of cancer.
Her husband and co-star Duane “Dog” Chapman shared the news on Twitter this morning.
The Chapmans had been working on their latest series Dogs Most Wanted on WGN America, which is produced by Dorsey Pictures. The series is to feature the pair as they hunt down fugitives from the “most wanted” lists of the FBI, U.S. Marshals and individual states.
“Beth was larger than life and we were honored to work with her and inspired by her strength. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and all those whose lives were touched by her tenacity, spirit and love,” Dorsey Pictures said in a statement.

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.
