A loss they never dreamed they'd mourn.

After a tiring battle of throat cancer, Beth Chapman, the wife of the legendary Dog the Bounty Hunter has passed at age 51. The news comes shortly after Beth was placed in a medically induced coma, earlier this week. The family's agent released a beautiful statement, "Beth is one of the strongest people I've ever known, and if anyone can beat this, it's her. No matter what happens, she and the family have placed all of their hope, faith, and trust in God. Other than that, I'd just ask that all of her and Duane's fans keep Beth and the entire family in their prayers."

In a tweet about his beloved, he shared her passing.
