Duane 'Dog' Chapman Mourns Daughter Barbara Katie Who Died 1 Day before His Wedding
Duane Chapman of "Dog The Bounty Hunter" mourned his daughter, Barbara Katie, who passed on in 2006. The tragic incident happened 24-hours before he married Beth Chapman.
Reality TV star, Duane Chapman, dedicates his recent Instagram post to his deceased daughter, whom he shares with a former partner, Lyssa Greene.
The picture showed Barbara holding her infant, Travis, in her arms. Under it, Duane penned down an emotional message to mark the anniversary of her death.

"15 years ago, my Barbara Katie went to be w/JESUS."
The affectionate remembrance moved fans, and they shared heart-melting messages via their comments. As at the time of Barbara's death, her only child, Travis Drake-Lee Chapman, was 4 years old.
