Dog The Bounty Hunter's adult daughter, Lyssa Chapman, posted a picture collage showing the image of her preteen daughter, Madalynn, and that of her late sister, Barbara Katy. The star mom gushed over the resemblance.


Former bondswoman Lyssa Chapman could not get over the striking resemblance between her growing daughter, Madalynn, and her late older sister, Barbara Katy.

The star's post was a side-by-side image presenting a throwback of Barbara, possibly, at the same age as Madalynn, and another photo of Madalynn. The pair's resemblance could hardly be disputed.

Madalynn and her late aunt wore the same smile and rocked their blonde tresses in similar bands. While Barbara's hair had been styled into a bob, Madalyynn's included a wavy texture.

Barbara's death came a day before her dad married his fifth wife, Beth Chapman.


Barbara's portrait had her dressed in a black dress with a little white cape while Madalynn rocked a dainty floral print dress. Lyssa penned in her caption:

"This is a side by side of my late sister, Barbara, and my daughter Mady! BK would have loooooved that she looked more like her than me…."


Lyssa continued her caption as she shared how much she missed her older sister every day. She added that it was soothing to see some streaks of Barbara in Madalynn.

Barbara is the oldest daughter of TV star and celebrity bondsman Duane "Dog" Chapman, who he had through his marriage with ex-wife Lyssa Brittain. Barbara lost her life in 2006.


On May 19, 2006, Duane and his family members received shocking news from authorities that Barbara's death was caused by an accident. The 23-year-old was said to have been driving with another person, Scott Standefer II, who also lost his life.

Reports showed that they drove in a stolen car, and at a point, they veered off course. Standerfer II and Barbara slammed the car into some trees before the vehicle finally landed upside down.


Trooper Jeremy Stone made it known that there were no clues as to why Barbara and the other occupant drove off the road because it seemed intentional. He added that there were no skid marks during the accident.

Barbara's death came a day before her dad married his fifth wife, Beth Chapman. Duane deliberated with his family, and the wedding was held the next day as a celebration of Barbara's life.

Duane Chapman is a dad to twelve grown children, and he would become a dad to two more when he marries Francie Frane. Frane has two sons from her previous marriage.

The star was in the news last year when he and Frane started their relationship. This came ten months after his wife, Beth Chapman, lost her life to throat cancer.
