"Dog the Bounty Hunter" star Beth Chapman has died after battling Stage 4 lung cancer, her husband and TV show co-star Duane announced Wednesday. She was 51.
"It's 5:32 (a.m.) in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven," he tweeted. "We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."
The family's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, confirmed to USA TODAY that Chapman "passed away early this morning Hawaii time."
"Spoke with Duane. We are all heartbroken," he added.
Chapman was placed in a medically-induced coma over the weekend after being taken to the intensive care unit at Queen's Medical Center in Hawaii. She was originally diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer in September 2017 after having a nagging cough checked out; it returned later as Stage 4 lung cancer, representative Mona Wood-Sword told the Associated Press.
