'WGN America' Shares a Heartwarming Tribute Video in Honor of the Late Beth Chapman
WGN America released a tribute for the late reality star, Beth Chapman, on Wednesday, after she lost a well-fought battle with a terminal illness.
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic news that @MrsdogC lost her battle with cancer today. She was an exceptional woman, all of us at #WGNAmerica will miss her tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with @DogBountyHunter, her family, loved ones and millions of fans.”
The video memorialized the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star with videos together with family and friends, and with words that sympathized with her family and fans who mourn her loss.
Chapman and her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, have been together for decades before their reality show, “Dog the Bounty Hunter” aired. They also starred in the A&E TV documentary, “Dog and Beth” Fight of their Lives” and WGN’s “Dog’s Most Wanted.” Sadly, she died before it previewed on television.

Despite her death, the show is still set for release in 2020. Although it is unsure how much has been filmed, the Chapman’s are spending this time to grieve for their beloved matriarch. The news of her demise was confirmed by Dog as he tweeted:
“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.”
Chapman died at Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii where she was brought over the weekend after having difficulty breathing. She was surrounded by her family, including her mother and husband who held her hand through it all.
“When she had an attack I didn’t know anything to do but say ‘in Jesus’ name’ and hold her and when I said ‘in Jesus’ name’ she said, ‘Say it again, say it more,” Dog said. “She told the girls and everybody with her mouth and stuff she said I love you guys, are you guys all okay?”
